Torn toenail

My dog tore a toenail on our walk today. I have let them get a little too long, I feel like a awful mom! It bled a little that's how I noticed it, she having trouble walking on it, limping a good bit. There's no hangnail, and the bleeding has stopped, I put hydrogen peroxide on it and have let it be. Any idea if I need too go too a vet? Or anything else I can do? I feel so bad help!
