    Swollen Foot

    Quick question.

    A few weeks ago, I pet-sat two female guinea pigs for a family that I know. Today, the owners told me that something is wrong with one of the girls. I don't have any pictures, but they said that one of her back feet is swollen. I suggested bumblefoot, but they said there's no sign of a wound/injury, that none of the kids have dropped or misheld her recently, and that otherwise she's eating and acting like normal. Does this still sound like bumblefoot, or could it be something else?

    There doesn't have to be an injury for it to be bumblefoot. Have them look at http://www.guinealynx.info/pododermatitis.html and see if that's what it looks like.

    I sent her that link yesterday, and she says that's not what the foot looks like.
