Chantel - Is your axolotl living with fish or another axolotl?

Could it of got its leg caught in a tank decoration or filter intake?

I would remove it from the tank and isolate it in a small food safe container (with lid) in some of your tank water. Keep the container cool and the water clean. You could put the container in the fridge to cool the axolotl down and help it heal.

If the axolotls skin is broken you may want to give some salt baths to keep fungus away.
2 teaspoons of salt dissolved in 2 liters of water soak for 10 min twice a day.

Use the same temperature water for water changes and salt baths.
