Default Hedgehog bit by dog

My hedgehog was bit by one of our dogs and I don't really know what to do. She's eating and drinking fine, she's not bleeding, and seems perfectly fine overall. I'm not sure if I should take her into the vet because she looks okay and is acting as she normally does. I've had her for almost a year and nothing like this has ever happened so I don't know if I should just watch her and wait or take her in.

I would take her to the vet as soon as possible. Internal bleeding doesn't always show signs right away and hedgehogs are very very good at hiding injuries. If she's bleeding internally it could be to late by the time she shows signs.
