Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

I am so sorry to hear about your sweet Ricky and his accident. I am also sorry that it has taken so long to get to your question. All you can do for Ricky, if he survived the night, is to provide support such as giving him Pedialyte, a few drops every 4 hrs to keep him hydrated and give him a dose of Nutrical, available at the pet store, every 4-6 hrs to help keep his nutrients and vitamins up so his body may be able to fight this off. It would be best to have a vet examine Ricky if he does not respond to this because he may develop an infection that would require veterinary care.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****
