Hi there. Thanks for the question. If the collie is eating and drinking ok and not acting depressed....then you can wait til morning. If the dog becomes depressed- unwilling to move around or get up....or will not eat or drink water, then you need to go in immediately. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.
