    Show us a pic of the bottom of her foot.... I have seen the swelling go up and out the top. My first guess WAS bumblefoot.

    you were absolutely right, the weird thing is there was no scab on the bottom but her webbing kept getting larger- so today was it HAS to be done- so after soaking it popped right out- i didn't take a before shot this morning but the swelling was twice this

    i think the lack of scab is what threw me on this one, a relief to her i am sure!
