My Dog fell off our bed and landed on his right side of his face. Now it is swollen. I cant afford the $200 emergency vet fee. What do I do? He wont let me touch him and put ice on it, but he did eat his breakfast.
Thank you for any answers

If the swelling or pain persists then I would recommend taking him to your regular veterinarian today after they open for normal business hours. It would be unusual (but theoretically possible) for such as low fall to cause a facial fracture. Other causes for facial swelling include insect bite/sting or an abcess from a prior puncture wound.
Good luck,
