Bent and discolored nail


New member
hi there! Mushu is a two year old standard morph. His nail on his left foot seemed to get bent in a way a couple months ago but I monitored him and he walks on it just fine and doesn’t seem to be in any pain. However, just this week the nail looks like it almost has a blood clot in it. He still walks on it fine but I’m worried.

It's good that Mushu is not bothered by it so you know it's not painful. Do you trim his nails ? You can cut the tip off and that would likely make it less likely that he might snag it on something and cause it to bleed. Even if that were to happen though it's nothing serious and Mushu will be fine. :)

If you decide to snip his nails there are youtube videos that show exactly how to do it.
