today i was doing my piggy's weekly check and while i was cutting the toenails i came across one toe that was slighted lifted. it was on the front right foot,one of the middle fingers. when i flexed it it went further than the other toes but he was not yelping. also wen i put him on the floor he doesnt limp but also doesnt put that toe on the floor.his toenail is pointed slightly upwards too. is there something wrong or am i being paranoid?mallethead

thanks for any quiries x(sorry about spelling)

Hi had a sow who had toe nal which pointed upwards once. She wasn't like that all of the time but it happened when she got older. the mail on that toe also became thincker than on other other toes. the vet said that it wasn't anything to wory about and to leave it. Never seemed to bother her at all.

If you are weorried thought would be worth getting it checked out by th vets.

thanks ill leave it for a little bit then to see if it clears up. its just the only thing is its the whole toe and it bends further back. i know this may sound silly but do you think it could be dislocated (I'm a preteen so not very logical)
