    My vet says it's fine, but to me looks inflamed and painful - Piggie foot (bumble foot?)

    Hi, My poor lonely piggie (cage mate passed away - but we have just applied for a new piggie adoption! :D ), has a red patch on his hind leg. A year ago, it was smaller. I put Sudocrem and when I am diligent doing it every day, it seems to calm down. But it never goes away. Background info...

    Possible Satin Pig?

    Hello! Just wanted to drop a quick question and find out how guinea pigs are diagnosed as Satin? Is it a blood or medical test or simply by the look of the fur? My 1year old Rex keeps hurting her feet (a front on once and a the same back one twice) and I’m worried about whether this is simply...

    Swollen and bruised foot

    My guinea pig recently hurt his foot while pulling himself over his play pen ( I was supervising but had my back turned for a couple seconds) he twisted his foot in one of the bars and I instantly took his foot out, when I put him down he was limping. 30 mins or more later he started to put his...

    Guinea Pig Swollen Toe

    Hi there. My guinea pig over the past two days has developed a largely swollen toe on his front paw. I am including a picture with this post. With everything going on, I was hesitant to call the vet right away and wanted to see if I could do my own research. I came across information that said...

    What's going on with this foot?

    Hey all. I noticed one of our pigs has got a bit of a crusty growth on one of her feet. She had had enough by the time I got a photo of this one so I couldnt inspect the other. Any suggestions? We use Aubiose in the cage and I have been wondering if it may be too tough on their feet.

    My Guinea Pig has a scab on his foot!

    Is this normal? Both of my Guinea pigs have it! My friend who is a Guineas pig breeder said, it’s just from them grooming themselves. Also they are both fairly young. So, I know that means they are more susceptible to diseases. It is definetly not bumblefoot.It doesn’t quite look like a spur...

    Little Black scab looking thing on my Piggie's foot

    Hello, my Guinea pig has a small black scab looking thing at the top of his toenail, where it meets the foot. I have gently cleaned it, put a little Neosporin on it, and cleaned up his cage. I'm worried that it is an infection. Is there a way to clean it better or take care of it? I've heard of...

    Foot problem?

    I was looking at my pig and I noticed that her foot was very dark compared to her other feet. I am concerned of what it could be.

    Does my guinea pig have a foot problem, maybe bumblefoot? She’s been pregnant for a while now so I haven’t held her in a long time. Today I held her and while she was lying down, her back foot came up and I noticed a bump. I didn’t want to scare her by picking up her leg since she’s very...

    Strange Behaviour

    Hi All! Benji just confused us a little. I put him down on the floor for his run, and he was walking around fine and suddenly he stopped, held his front foot in the air until i approached him, he then walked off but was looking like he didn't want to put much weight on his right hand side. I...

    Bumblefoot In An Elderly Pig

    Hi everyone, My lovely piggie Martini is almost 6 years old and has been doing great except for a recent develoment of a sore thanks to bumblefoot. She's had some red paw pads but frequent litter changing has been helping. However I had surgery recently and now I have noticed that her right paw...
