I have piglets that are 9 days old 4 of them started losing their hair at the base of their ears and down their back, this kind of looks like mange on a dog, they may also have a loose stool. I have lost these 4 , the other 8 look healthy but I' m afraid something is going on and I will loose the others the mother seems to be healthy. Any idea what's going on. I don' t want to loose the rest of them!

It is hard to tell by your description. I would first get one to the Veterinary Diagnostic Lab ASAP. You can also call me at 334-321-8085, or the local County Extension Office.
