Do you know how she got injured?
Friend, a non weight bearing lameness that is not getter better after several hours requires a visit to the vet. Important to rule out a fracture. Other possible causes in this case would be a soft tissue injury or a pinched nerve along the neck. Besides a hands on examination your family veterinarian will start her on anti inflammatory medication and pain killers. Hightly recommend not waiting any longer and having her checked today. If this is related to a fracture, the longer you wait the worst it will be for her. In the meantime, rest her; activity should be limited to urinate and defecate on a leash.
