Mother Accidentally Stepped on Kitten

by Hena

Hi. My mom was stepping out of the house yesterday and accidentally stepped on a kitten I have fostered. His breathing became heavy and he started making weird noises from his chest. I took him to the vet and he said hes fine and gave him 2ml of Ibuprofen syrup to help with any pain. He also told me to check if the kittens faeces has blood but i was unable to check that because the kitten lives in the garden with its siblings. I continued giving it Ibuprofen as the vet ordered 3 times a day.Today he didnt drink any broth or milk but had some chicken in the afternoon.But his condition seems to be worsening and his breathing is still heavy.I gave him Ibuprofen syrup about 2 hours ago and it seemed he was having trouble swallowing it and then I gave him milk with a dropper and he threw it up and wont even eat shredded chicken now. Then as I was holding him he urinated all over me. Please please help me out..Im really really worried I'll lose him. Thank you.

You need to get him back to the vets as soon as possible. The vet may want to keep him in to monitor him for a day or so and this won't be cheap i'm afraid. But I really don't like the symptoms you are telling me. I'm hoping it may only be shock but dehydration could also be a factor here. there may also be some damage which the vet did not spot.

I know it may be expensive to take him back to the vets but I really think it is your best option.

I do hope he is OK, I would love to be kept informed if possible.
best wishes Kate
