Exclamation My hamster is injured :(

Last night my hamster seemed perfectley fine. But this morning when I woke up I noticed she was walking slower than usual. I assumed this was because of her age but I just discovered that her leg is damaged. I don't know what happened to her. Here's are some pictures.

I don't know what to do
Thank you for any responses.

It looks as though she's hurt her leg quite badly so you need to take her to the vet as soon as you can.
In the mean time I would rearrange her cage if necessary so she can walk comfortably & everything is in easy reach of where she sleeps without climbing or walking far.

She needs to see a vet as an emergency. She must be in a lot of pain. Is there any sort or rope / string in the cage? Has the foot gone? It looks as though she has been trapped either in rope or in the bars and has chewed the foot off. I hope you can get to a vet.

I can't really see her leg clearly but definitely agree with the others that she urgently needs to see an exotic animal vet.

Thank you. I'll rearrange the cage to only have the basics for her. I have a diy cage without any bars so that wasn't the issue at least. I noticed that she pees where her burrow is, but it can't be that her skin got irrritated by the pee, right?

I'll seek the vet as soon as possible.

I also have a few rocks in a small pile, so I'll remove that.
