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

Any chance of an injury to this nail?

Any breaks or cracks in the nail?

Is it the toe above that is swollen?

Any wounds or sores in the skin?

Can you take a photo of this to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip button on the tool bar above the text box. 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 link here for me to have a peek.
