They say he doesn't have good movement in his intestines.

His HR is good and his MM is pink. He is comfortable on meds, etc. he is alert. They were not able to do resect because so much was severely bruised.

Please tell me if he has a good chance of survival? When should he start to eat?

I am sorry to hear what happened to your dog. How is he doing today?
I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. I am sorry you did not get help from another expert sooner. I just came online and saw your question.
How is he doing? Do you still need help? What is your vet telling you about his chances?
