Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. Yes, I would ice her paw for now and get her some pain medication from the vet in the morning.

you recommend taking her to vet tomorrow if she is limping or take her regardless?
Dog Specialist: Dr. Rachel, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

If she's not limping anymore, I don't think she needs to go. If she is, it means she's hurting and should get some pain meds.
