Hi, my piggy had something fall on his face, or maybe I accidentally stepped on his face area. Either way, he can't eat right now and there's no vet until the morning. what should I do in the meantime? I don't own critical care but maybe I can make something like that.

Hello, this piggy needs to be seen by an emergency vet. If he has suffered significant trauma to the face to prevent him from eating, there's no telling how much damage has also been done to his eyes, nose and airway.

How is he now? Good that you have taken him to the emergency vet for a check. I hope that it is not too serious an issue.

He's okay. He got some x-rays done and it's mainly soft tissue injury, making eating painful. There was some dislocation but she said it will heal overtime,so pain meds and critical care for now. I still feed him his usual food. Thanks for asking!
