Hi, sharon. If your dog's foot is still moist, there may be an infection or a foreign body present. This isn't too uncommon with puncture wounds. Your best bet is to take your dog to the vet to have the wound assessed and treated.

I hope your lab is okay! :fingerscr Please keep us posted on what the vet tells you!

I agree ~ it's likely not going to get better on it's own and may well become seriously infected. Best to have her seen and treated by a Vet now.
