My Puppy’s Paw

Hi, new to the forum. So today before I left my house to do something I created my puppy as usual. He is a pit bull/lab mix. He was fine when I put him in there. When I got home 2 hours later, I noticed he was limping when I took him out. Once I took a closer look at his paw I realized his “thumb” seemed to be the issue. The nail had grown what seems to be .75 - 1 inch in the time I had crated him(???). Not only that, the thumb seemed to be out of place or larger. Almost a dislocated look. Under the fur looks pinkish/reddish inflammation. My first thought is that he got it caught on his bed while crated. Again None of this was the case a mere 2 hours before, causing me to think it was sudden trauma and not a disease. I will post pics (attempting to attach, check if it worked as I am new to the forum)

Lightbulb Vet, vet, vet, ASAP


If he's injured the soft-tissue in the paw, the SOONER it's seen, the sooner it can be treated.

he's in pain - & it won't fix itself. Paws are complex structures, & swelling, etc, is not good.
Let us know the vet's conclusion - hopefully it's a minor injury, but hard to say from those photos.
