    Have a 4 month old Black Copper Maran (she's the runt) who has a nasty toe issue.

    This is what I found on her today. (See pictures)

    She's been moved inside to a dog create with clean pine shavings, water, food and heat lamp with her 3 other sisters.

    Thoughts on treatment?

    Looks bad. I would start by using soap and water to clean the entire foot and and put an antibiotic ointment on any sore pink areas.
