Awwww, poor both of you I hate falling.
If her toe starts swelling, it might be broken. I would get the vet to check it if it does swell. They can't really do anything for a broken toe, but you just want to make sure it doesn't get infected.
I hope you both feel better today.

I would definately clean the wound very very gently with a wet paper towel or something so you can see how bad it is. You can put dry flour on it to stop the bleeding if need be.

I hope you both get well soon.

The septic (sp?) stuff to stop the bleeding, and maybe some betadine to prevent infections. That's really good stuff. Also, I would watch her very closely as you never know if she may have fractured or broke one of those tiny bones. If she's acting strange, I would go to the vet. Please keep us updated. XOXOXOX to Minnie!

I would go to the vet just to make sure she is okay.

Awww, poor girl and poor you I would keep an eye on it like Ms_P said and make sure it doesn't swell. I hope it's not broken.

Cool

Well I took her to the vet as I couldnt wait her paw was bleeding again,si rushed her there, her little toe was fractured, she lost her claw. im hoping it will grow back??? it bled as the vet removed it,she cried a little,it was awful.The vet bandaged her foot up but its sore looking, i wish he would have put a cone on her head as she keeps trying to chew the bandage off.Shes being annoying by jumping around all over the house, shes so hyper and active im having a really hard time keeping her still*sigh*shes so bouncy. ive not walked her at all,ive put her down to do her buisness,she doesnt seem to care that shes injured.
