Hi, Lisa and welcome!

If your Toby just had a front declaw on Tuesday and one foot is quite swollen, I would consider this an emergency. Toby may have developed an infection in this paw/foot and needs a hands-on exam by a veterinarian to get a diagnosis and treatment.

It would be advisable to have him seen today.

I hope all will be well with your Toby and please let me know how he's doing and what the vet tells you. Thanks!

Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback; that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much!

Hi again, Lisa,

I'm just checking in with you to see how Toby is doing and if you were able to have him seen by a vet to alleviate the swelling in his foot, following the declaw surgery.

Please let me know, as I am concerned for him and hope all is well!
