My dog hasn't gone to the bathroom in 24 hours. She is trained to go indoors on potty pads and usually has no problem at all. She does have anxiety since my husbnad went out of town yesterday and hasn't gone to the bathroom since. I'm worrried that she's extremely uncomfortable and just not wanting to go? Will she go when she reaches her limit or could something else be wrong ?

Is she still eating/drinking normally?

Have you checked all over the house, to ensure she's not going somewhere else?
