Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.
There is no time limit for how long an animal (or us) can be in pain; but its not nice for Nik to be this sore for that long. Therefore, I would suggest ringing his vet again and seeing if you could sit/wait to be seen as soon as possible. You may have a wee wait if they are fully booked, but with him being that sore they could potentially have their nurse assess him as a possible emergency. And if they confirm the pain, then his vet can at the very least start pain relief to keep him comfortably until they can fully assess him. So, that would be our best option (or you could phone other vets to see if they can see him sooner) to get him pain-free as quickly as possible.
Please take care,
Dr. B.
