Thanks for loading some!

Looks like she got a little bo bo on her toe.
Is that dried blood?
She is probably limping cause it is hurting/bothering her.
You may want to put something like neosporin on it and just keep an eye on her.

Maybe it's bruised.
I would keep it clean with a little dab of medicine and just keep an eye on her.
She should heal ;) It doesn't look life threatening.

UPDATE:The blueness of the toe is gone but the scab around ankle grew 2x as big as it was could this be an infection?
