kitten hit by car...head injury I think

This answer was rated:

I found a hit kitten, he is bleeding thru nose, meows and tries to get up...air blood/bubbles from nose is their any hope? I have no money, but have abad habit of picking up strays and finding them homes that is close to the best I can do ....I have put in $amount at bottom,,,kitten worth much more
He really must have medical attention asap! if you tell me where you are I will try and find an emergency vet in your area. wrap him in a towel be very gentle he may have internal injuries.!
I know most vets will try and charge you but if you tell them its a stray they will more than likely fix him if hes fixable and give him to the humane society. Unless of course you want to pay to fix him they dont really give many options!

Reply to Joann Canafax's Post: My problem is that it is Saturday and vets are closed and ER is way out of my price range. My question is unfortunatley medical...if he is bleeding from nose andblowing bloddy bubbles is he bleeding internally. At times its breathing seems difficult but if you touch him he will meow and try to get up. I just want to make comfortable
The only thing that you can do at this point is to keep him warm try to limit his movement wrap him in a towel very snug but gently try to keep his head level with his body. speak softly to him try to keep him quiet and calm.

Reply to Joann Canafax's Post: but doyou think it sounds like he is blleding internally, blood thru nose with air bubbles?
blood from the nose or mouth could be a sign of an internal injury.

Reply to Joann Canafax's Post: Remlap alabama...I cant afford ER care. I really could not afford this but I didn't know what else to do
I have worked as a volunteer at the cincinnati zoo. I am currently enrolled in an advanced veterinary technician course and by hands on I mean I have been in many emergency rescue situations with many kinds of animals and by studying I do quite a bit of reading and also offer my help in answering questions like this one when I have time.:)
If by no means you can't afford it I would rather see the animal not suffer than get paid for this question.You have the option to accept or not accept!

Reply to Joann Canafax's Post: I can only sit and watch him die or take care of him myself the way we do things in the country. I appreciate your help. Maybe he or she will pull thru thanks again
if you tell them its a stray they will decide if hes fixable then release him to the humane society!

  • You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again! Jack's Mom Tuscon, AZ
  • The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful. Tracy Grayson, LA
  • My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on! Debbie USA
  • I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there. Alice H. Jacksonville, Fl.
  • Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help. Mary C. Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
