When I took gustavo out his cage today i put him on the floor so i could grab my other piggy, i noticed he was walking weird. I looked closer and he seemed to be limping like. Hopping on one foot. I wish i could insert the video because its really bad but when he walks he keeps the one foot in the ait. What should I do? I dont want him to be in pain. I doubt my other piggy caused it since hes a baby and follows him everywhere. If anyone wants me to send them the video I will.

Hi!

Is he still putting weight on his leg or not at all?

Please be aware that a sprain can happen at any joint between shoulder/hip down the legs and that the issue is not necessarily located in the foot itself. You will also hobble with a twisted knee...
Sprains are not at all uncommon; all it takes is a bad landing on one of the legs.

If in doubt, please see a vet.

Hi thank you, I was looking and he seems to have an indent right above his leg.
