Hello and welcome,
My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in small animal health. I'm sorry to hear of this problem. Some additional information will be useful.
Do any of his toes look red or swollen?
What kind of litter/bedding do you use?
What is the floor surface - wire, plastic, etc.?
What do you feed him, both basics and treats? any supplements?
How is his appetite today?
Thank you.
