She's a 4/5 month old small puppy who had hurt her foot

Customer Question

She's a 4/5 month old small puppy who had hurt her foot earlier today while I was gone for approximately 2 hours. My son called me when he got home from school and said she had a little bit of blood coming from her paw. I can't find anything and she's not limping anymore however she is pacing around a lot coma and it almost seems like she is trying to hide, whimpering and looking extremely sad. All are very strange behaviors for her.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: Yes but she shakes a lot and barely lets me look
JA: The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about me?
Customer: I don't think so.
