I adopted two rats over the weekend, I specifically asked for two females that were not pregnant (this is only my second set of ratties), aaaaand both were pregnant to my surprise! Now that I've come down from the stress of not being prepared....everything seems to be going okay with the first litter. There were 8 to start, one was very tiny, and the next morning it was gone. Nature's crazy, right? Anywho, it's day 3 and yesterday I noticed a bit of swelling on the back foot. I did a lot of research on bumblefoot and I'm fairly certain it's not the same thing. It almost looks like an injury of some kind, but there is nothing standing out to me that would have caused it, unless the mom stepped on her and scratched her maybe. I want to make sure she/he doesn't lose the foot or get eaten! I know it's just what they do, but it seems perfectly healthy aside from this swollen foot. Anyone ever had this happen before or can give me pointers on how to help fix it? Thank you!!
