Question

Guinea Pig Foot "Spurs"


The other day, I picked up Sunny, and she had a strange looking growth on her foot. Id seen it before, and I just thought it was a woodshaving that got really stuck to her foot, so I just clipped it off... When I saw it grew back, I was a little freaked out at first because I thought it was some sort of fungus or disease- I looked it up online, and it turns out she only has foot spurs!


Does anyone elses piggie have these? They dont hurt the pigs if you trim them, and from I read, she didnt develope them because I did anything wrong.
Just thought it was kinda interesting, because I didnt really know about this before.
