I would take her to the vet just to be sure that everything is fine.. What did she rip it on? Was it a clean rip?

Keep her calm which will help it stop bleeding. You can dip her foot in flour or corn starch to help stop the bleeding. Leave her wheel out for at least tonight.

She probably won't need the vet unless it does not stop bleeding, or it shows any sign of infection. A tiny bit of regular polysporin will help it heal. Don't use pain relief as it is toxic.
