I got the girls out for floor time earlier and noticed this on Peaches back toe. I have no idea what it is?

Not possible to make a diagnosis as to cause....but from looking at the picture, the whole toe is clearly swollen so a vets visit to check for infection with possible antibioiic treatment is best.

I'll take her to the vet tomorrow and get it looked at.

Just have no idea what it is or what has caused it.

The vet has prescribed Baytril and Inflacam for Peaches toe. She thinks it could be some kind of infection caused by a small scratch on the toe.

She's on a 5 day course and got to see how she gets on after that.
