Subject: possible broken foot/toes

If the foot is still swollen that bad by Monday, i
would definitely have an x-ray done. Fractures of the
long bones may not always be obvious. And even if
your ferret "just" has a fractured foot/toe, I
personally would rather know it for sure. Sometimes
in dogs the foot is put in a splint if enough of the
foot bones are broken. But your little one could just
have soft tissue damage (basically a bad strain).
I've seen parrots that actually sliced a toe off by
getting it caught in the cage door.
