About a year ago I noticed a growth on the bottom of his one foot; could have been from him bitting then. This winter he has been bitting the bottom of his feet, I saw small amount of blood on his perch. He is bitting both feet. I was thing because it's dry? I have electric heat and I think he was bitting last winter. It's hard to tell, I dont see the bottom of his feet much. I been cleaning his perches daily and put triple antibiotic on it. My husband is out of work and money is very tight, the vet needs the money up front, I'm not sure what to do. I will take him as soon as I can.
