Shilo Smith

dog hurt front paw and isn't walking on it or wanting to move around or go outside

yesterday a friend stepped on the front paw, Shilo (my pit) yelpped but was fine, she ran around the rest of the day and wasn't limping or anything. this morning she wasn't putting and weight onto her leg, and she doesn't want to move or go for a walk or anything. SHe'll eat if we bring the food up to her or water to her, but when we say lets go outside for a walk she usally would jump up and run but she won't even get up now. Unless she really ahs to pee, and even then we have decided to carrier her and she isn't fighting us on it. What could be wrong. We her asprin and she is relaxing in the air condition with us on the couch. please help with any ideas to help ease her discomfort and advise on what can be done, the vet isn't open until tomorrow. and there isn't a answering service like our old vet had.. please help. thank you

I would google where the closest 24 hour emergency clinic was. There are 2 within driving distance of my house.

She probably injured her paw. If a pittie isn't being active, it's time for a vet trip.
