Bless you for helping this sweet fur baby.
Rub a drop of pancake syrup into his gums in case he is hypoglycemic.
Drain the water from a can or tuna into a bowl and see if he will lick it up for hydration.If he does, offer the tuna.
You can give milk, pedialyte, baby food (no onion or garlic),salmon, or canned cat food by syringe or dropper.He can also have boiled chicken
Insert it in the side of his mouth where there is a space between his teeth.
Keep him on his tummy in a nursing position (not up like a human baby).
If you warm the food it may motivate him to lap it up.
Please let me know how he is doing. Just press reply and I will be here for you.
