As an average family, you have your poor months, whereas you cannot always afford vet consultation. So conviently, the neighbours decided to let their big dog run free in the yard to attack my 7 month old kitten. Luckily I saw little Sylvester hyperventilating on the grass while the dog thought he was playing dead. When we brought Sylvester inside, we realised he was bitten on the back leg, tail, stomach (which was not wounded) as well as the neck (which was minor). At the time, he was in shock, and his leg and tail were bleeding. Right now he has recovered from shock, and the wounds are not bleeding, but he is exhausted. He also can't stand properly yet, due to the back leg injury. He is responsive, but is mostly asleep. We feed through a syringe. Its been about 7 hours since the attack and there don't seem to be signs of him dying so far. But here is my question. Vets say that if the animal survives the night, he will survive. 7 hours seems quite equal to a night, so can Sylvester survive? Yes, he did show signs of improvement over the last 7 hours, as he had stood for at least a second, then fell down again. Please help, this is the first time we've experienced this.
