• My data toe is swollen. What can I do to help the swelling go down?

    Hi Sandena,
    I recommend that you take your pet into see a veterinarian. A swollen toe is concerning and it will usually need treatment from a vet to resolve. There can be a few different causes for this including an injury, infection, or even a mass. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the swelling and the treatment your pet needs after they have examined him.
