    It looks like she caught her toe in something. She walks on it but puts it up when she is standing, not real active. She lets me pick her up and we have been cleaning it and putting equade and vetericyn on it. This is 2 days old. Anyone know why or what else I should be doing?

    You could soak her foot in warm Epsom salts and put some plain Neosporin on it daily.
