Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Is the whole foot swollen or just part (ie between the toes, pads, etc)?

Any wounds, signs of bites, or holes?

Any odor or discharge?

Any trauma to this foot?

Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so and post them online, it will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.
