Traumatized chick

    Unfortunately my usually calm dog, chased down one of my chicks and when I reached her she was just lying on the ground. I just held her for awhile since I hold my chickens all the time and fortunately she didn't seem to have any wounds. She just stands or squats in one place, hardly moves and doesn't eat or drink, even her favorite mealy worms. Any one else have any experience with trauma like this?
