You will need to keep a close eye on her for the next 24 hours for signs of a concussion which include sleepiness, lethargic behavior, dazed look, walking into things, or unable to wake her up.

As long as she is not experiencing any of these symptoms she should be OK, though it is always advisable to call her vet and let them know what happened in case he wishes to exam her.
