Hamster dropped on floor

Wev'e just dropped our hamster from approx a meter high onto a hard floor,  intally he looked like he'd died but then came round! There is a small amount of blood we think from his mouth, he is gaspging/renchin, but he is now walking about and seems a little better? Please help we are awiating the vet to get back to us!

Oh no! It sounds like he might have some degree of head trauma or even chest trauma from this fall. He can bruise his lungs, causing the bleeding out of his mouth (or lungs), and head trauma can cause this also. I'm glad he came around, but I'd still recommend seeking a veterinary surgeon right away to make sure he's OK! Because of his small size, they might be able to treat with him with some IV fluids! Best of luck with him! Please take him to your vet!
