Exclamation Hurt Tail.

I woke up this morning and went into my chinchilla room to see that Hailey was missing a chunk of fur on her tail and she keeps twitching it. She is not bleeding from the area but it is a big area and she is barking a lot. Should I take her to the vet?? Or is there anything I can do to fix it?? I am worried, please let me know!

I plan on going on a week or so. I am low low on funds right now. She stopped barking and her attitude is much much better. She seemed very mad at me. She did not want to be touched or looked at! But she is better, she acknowledges me and takes treats. I found a chunk of fur in the side of her cage, on the metal bars. I think she got it stuck, even though it is a chin cage. She is fine the spot is better she is just short some fur. I made an appointment and plan on taking her in! thanks guys!
