Aww, I am so sorry to hear that. It sucks to see any dog injured, especially a little baby puppy
I am sure the vet knows what they are talking about after examining your puppy. Just do exactly what they told her in terms of treating her with antibiotics and caring for her and I would be sure to follow up with the vet after the antibiotics. I would be very cuddly with her, and love her up a lot to make her feel comfortable and cared for. She may not want to go for a walk with a collapsed lung because it may be harder than before for her to breathe until she is healed. I would maybe carefully let her out on a leash, let her go potty and then bring her back in to rest. Its probably best to let her heal before doing anything too strenuous with her.
If she seems down and doesn't want to move, it could be that she is traumatized from what happened but just give her lots of love and attention and she will heal very soon.
