You did not mention where the bite was, but there is always a chance for internal bleeding (neck, stomach)or other non visable damage, so it is certainly best to be checked out immediately. The area should probably be shaved and the wound cleaned,and the pup should be on antibiotics for infection, I would seek out different vet than the one originally consulted. Warm compresses (a washcloth with warm water) may help with the swelling.
Baxter was bit by a neighborhood dog few weeks ago, on the surface it didn't appear too bad, but once the area was shaved it revealed the actual damage and required some staples and antibiotics for ten days.
Best of luck to the pup.
