This is not too uncommon. Most puppies will be able to handle a fall like this. They may be a bit painful, but they have a lot of cartilage still so they are less likely to suffer fractures.

I would get her seen and treated for the pain. We can use something like Buprenex as needed for pain control. It's very safe and effective in neonatal puppies.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
