Customer Question
We have a new...

We have a new kitten. It's about 6 weeks old. It got tangled up in my husband's feet and he accidentally stepped on her. Her head is thrown back, she has a little blood coming out of her nose, she is defecating. She does not seem conscious, but her eyes are open.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the kitten's name?

Tyche.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Tyche?

She is breathing pretty steadily. But she seems to have some spasms.

Is there any chance at all that she will live?
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

yes, if you go to ER she has a chance....if they determine she will not at least she can have a humane death rather than suffering...

I do not want to call you. Right now, I feel like that it's not worth the extra expense. I don't think it will change the answer.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

No problems.....go take her to the ER....do you need help locating ER?

She does not seem to be suffering. She's not meowing, or in distress. But she is not responsive, either.
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Trust me she is suffering.......

Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

She is probably in shock and will have a slow death.....take her to the ER.....I ma going to opt out of this question. I have told you what you need to do....anything short of the ER is not appropriate......DRB
