    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hes around 10 months old. Hes eating and seems happy and healthy. I noticed one of his fingers looks different yesterday while handling. I was able to take a picture of it today. What could it be? Is there anything I can do to help? Im really worried about my little guy.5ED02825-F0D2-4A45-A6EC-4548C189674F.jpgAlso hes just about to shed so dont mind his colour in the picture. Thank you so much for any help! It is the top toe in the picture.

    The picture's too small for me to see anything. If for some reason it is broken, luckily it's just one toe so it shouldn't affect his climbing. There's really nothing you can do for it. It will likely heal on its own.

    If it is broken, unless it swells up or gets infected your vet won't be able to do anything (and with those two scenarios, you'd likely just be prescribed an antibiotic like Baytril and an anti-inflammatory). Give it time like KattsKritters said, and it it does either of the things that I've mentioned OR shrivels up, make a vet appointment. Otherwise, just like a broken toe in humans, there's nothing you can do.
