Hello. I am new to this group. I was wondering can anyone help me and tell me what is this lump/bump on my hedgehog leg? I also found out that she has the same bump on her other leg. At first it was only 1. I attached a picture. Please help. I can't get a hold of a vet because none of them see hedgehogs 😭

I would advise trying to find a vet as soon as you can. From just this picture, it looks like it could be bumblefoot. Pet rats can get this if their bedding/ the ground they walk on is too hard and it can irritate their feet. Chickens also get this if they step on something and it gets infected. This does not look quite right to be this, but that is the only thing I can think of besides a tumor. I would try to look for some more vets because hedgehog tumors can get serious quickly. Good luck! :)
