I was told they had to basically re-attach his tounge. We pick him up in 1hr. But the vet said be prepared he looks really really bad. Though he's already back to purring and being a love bug! But he won't drink water or eat so both will have to be force fed.
Wow - that is terrible :-( So mixing the food with water will help...and then yes, syringing water...maybe even add a bit of pedialyte to the water - non flavored.
