Customer Question

Hi, my kitten was out in the hallway of our apartment, and I picked him up to bring him inside when a neighbor opened their door. My kitten got scared and jumped from my arms, hitting his head on the wall before landing on the floor running into the house. Now he is doing this weird licking thing like he is trying to get something out of his mouth.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Is this automated?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your kitten?
Customer: Are you really here?
JA: No. I'm the Veterinarian's Assistant.
Customer: My kitten's name is Munchkin.

Is he still showing signs?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Any breathing changes?

Any loosened teeth or damage in his mouth?
