    Ok I can't figure out what she did to herself. She is limping. I soaked it (will get epsom salts soon) in warm water. I can't see any kind of wound at all.

    Could it be something else?

    Looks like some swelling on the middle of the foot pad, have you check for splinter?Some kind of injury most likely, soaking in some warm Epsom salt water will help with the swelling just make sure there isn't something in there. @TTownChics

    Thanks! I don't see anything but I will keep soaking it and keep looking and get some epsom salts. I feel like she is using it more than yesterday.

    When you use Epsom salt water be careful she doesn't drink any it is also a laxative. I use a small bucket or bowl that way only the feet and legs go in and she won't have access to the solution. half cup ES to 1 gal warm water. On top of foot i can see a bit of swelling and some redness too.

    I used a stock pot lol. She seems to be walking better today, still limping but better.

    I thought I replied but I went to work and xrayed her foot (I work at a vet clinic lol) and it was so hard to see but we think it was broken. It's finally healed up, it took about 4months and she is fine now. I'm glad she's better!
