I think they usually heal very quickly. I would put a band aid on her nail if she’ll let you and be prepared to carry her if she looks in pain. My parents dog got her nail cut really short but she didn’t seem bothered by it that evening.

I would say within 48 hours she should be back to normal. Sometimes vets do that if the quicks are too long and have to trim them back.
