    I've been trying to research so I didn't have to pester everyone with what seems to be a common occurrence but I can't find exactly what to do! Her foot looks terribly painful and I'm not sure what to do! [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    It looks like bumblefoot. Is the foot swollen? Does it feel hard, like something's in there, or soft and liquid-like? Can you post a picture of the bottom of her foot?

    A few of the nails look black. That can be common in frostbite where the rips of the toes get frostbitten and can fall off. I agree that photos of the foot pads would help, if there is any bumblefoot.
