Hello Guinea Pig Parents,

Hope you and your little ones are doing great!

Today, I found Cherry's hand a bit different than usual. Is his foot swollen and does he need to go to vet?
Please refer the image attached.

Can’t tell if it is swollen, swelling on a photo with nothing to compare to can be rather hard to see, but if you are concerned then do speak to a vet

Please see how his other foot looks. Everything looks fine. He is pop corning and no behavioural change yet but it just that the other foot look darker. I googled for swollen foot but the images does not look similar to one Cherry has.

it might just be that the skin is a darker colour.
You will need to see a vet if you are concerned though as they will need a hands on check to see any potential problems
