    My piggies foot was bleeding?

    My piggies are indoor piggies but i put them outside to eat grass, get sun etc and today when i was bringing them inside when it was getting dark i spotted blood on my youngest - but it wasnt hers. When i found the source (my oldest piggies back foot - she is 4 years old) i didnt know what had happened (a cut from outside ? or a disease?) anyway here is a photo - can you spot any abnormalities/problems

    Are you sure that's blood? The picture looks like she could have stepped on wet poop.

    I can't see any cut from the pic. If you are worried, you can wash/soak them in antiseptic solution.
