    HI everyone-

    I see the nail growing, but the finger (nuckle) looks bigger than the rest of the fingers, does it look swollen to you guys? Also the bare bone is still there and has not fallen off yet at least

    While it is hard to judge color in a photo, the healing finger appears more pink than red, which seems like a good sign, i.e. healing but not infected.

    Between that and the claw growing back, to me things look like they are going well.

    Like Diggie's Friend, I'd like to see a picture from the underside.

    I would expect the finger might be swollen as it heals, and might even end up larger than normal in the end.

    Iggy broke a finger when he was about two months old, and it healed up so that it is a bit longer as well as thicker. This photo is a few weeks later after the break healed. (Iggy is now almost three years old, a happy free squirrel. On his other front paw, he has about 2/3 of a finger (minus claw) from an injury after release.)

    What a sweetie; he really trusts you, even when taking the video.

    As long as he doesn't chew it again, or the toe pad become hard like a solid rubber ball enlarging quickly,

    or a bit redness below here you can see the vein enlarge, I wouldn't be overly concerned.

    As for infection that I'm not sure of without seeing a photo from below.

    Does it feel warmer on the toe area, than his other forepaw?

    The color and shape of this injury does not alarm me right now. Should it become red or hot to the touch I would get to a squirrel- or rodent- experienced vet immediately. Watch carefully and take good notes.

    Should you need a vet, Dr. E of Florida does consultations on test results and other data; you could show her your photos.

    With the nail involved; I'm concerned that any present infection might spread to the bone. An x-ray would show if it has or not. and hopefully eliminate the possibility of a tumor in what is left of the toe. No problem, they can live with the removal of the entire toe. The exotic vet I sent you the link to comes with the highest approval for treating various conditions in tree squirrels.

    If you should decided to take him in to be seen, send me a PM, as I would like to share some tips on how to lessen the stress during an appt. DF
