Hi, I'm Cher. Welcome to JustAnswer.

Hi again, and thanks for your patience.

I just came online and read your question; I'm sorry you didn't receive an earlier response.

I'm sorry to hear this happened to Jazz.

He should be seen in person by a vet, immediately, as I would consider this an emergency situation if he seems catatonic. A head trauma is very serious and there's not much you can do at home to remedy it, unfortunately.

If you don't know where the nearest ER vet is, if your vet is closed now, please go to the following site and put in your zipcode to find one:

I hope all will be well with Jazz and please update me on his condition and what the vet's findings are. Thanks!

Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback, as that is the only way I receive recognition from the website for my assistance. Thank you very much!
