My dog was hit by a golf ball very hard last night. She cried hysterically when she first got hit, but now seems to be walking fine and doesn't seem to be in any pain. Are there any dangers I should be aware of with internal injuries or anything. The golfer accidentally hit her with the ball when he swung she ran out on the course.

If you can feel bruising or tenderness or swelling, you might want to still watch her carefully or ask a vet. What injuries are possible depend on where she was hit.
