Will my tomato plant die?

My dog ran into one of my tomato plants. It was healthy and about 2.5 feet tall. It had its first 3 tomatos getting about the size of a quarter. There are still 2 left on there and she knocked off about 4 of he limbs on it around the base. Should it be alright or should I Plant another one and hope its not too late?

You said the dog ran into ONE of your plants. Sounds like you already have other ones.

But if what was broken off was only side shoots and not the main stem or the top parts, plant should be all right, just slowed down a bit. Another good reason to have your tomatoes caged!
