    When I went out to feed everything this morning, I noticed my six month old runner/runner mix didn't come over to greet me like she normally does. I found her laying down just outside of their house, and after prodding her for a minute, offering her food, and finally just standing her up, I determind something is wrong with her feet. I took her inside and let her swim a bit before I attempted to check her feet out, and found a small scan on the bottom of the bad leg, and a knotted up scabby area on the one she's putting pressure on. Does this look like bumblefoot? Is so, how do I treat it? If not, any ideas as to what it is?

    (Forgot to mention her feet are also very red.) They were not like this yesterday and she was walking fine. Bumblefoot?

    Ducks can get bumblefoot, and so can geese. I guess I would test with my fingers and see if there's a tender spot.
