I think you need to take her to the vet and get it checked out.

I agree with Karen. I would go to the vet and (for me) I would ask for an x-ray.

If she will tolerate you holding her foot in a cloth-wrapped ice pack, that can't hurt, and will keep swelling down. Otherwise, I'd keep her as quiet as possible, crate her if necessary, and keep her from chewing on it, even if that means putting a cone on her.

You need to go to the Vet, she could have some broken bones, many of the bones are very tiny in the foot area and ankle, some of the bones can start healing quickly and heal in the wrong way, when the bones are crushed or too tiny the Vet can not really do much and will be concerned with managing the pain. Hope your Vet lets you go in early and it's only brusing. Thinking of you and your Lucy.

I echo getting her to a vet as soon as you can. Poor baby. Hope she's ok.
