Bumblefoot in guinea pigs
Bumblefoot is the common term used to describe a condition called pododermatitis. This is where the soles of the feet of the guinea pig become red, ulcerated and infected, usually by a bacteria called staphylococcus. The condition commonly happens with many species including caged parrots, rabbits and other rodent species such as rats and chinchillas.
