In brief: Please take her

I highly recommend to have an x-ray to be especially with the amount swelling you describe.
Thank you.

In brief: Yes

If she cannot bear weight, has pain and swelling, she needs to be examined by a physician and will likely require an xray to evaluate for a fracture.
This should be done asap.
