I need assistance from the GPDD crew, as you all are more help than the vet in many cases!
I have an elderly piggie, Reesie, who has just had some dental work for overgrowing teeth - both incisors and molars. He had lost some weight and would not eat anything. I took him to the vet to correct the problem and have been feeding Critical Care and baby foods for a week or 10 days. He was quite unhappy at first, but has adapted well turning into a leisurely diner - taking a bite then chewing awhile, looking around, then repeating the process. He has picked up weight, but my problem seems to be that I cannot get him to resume eating regular food although he should be capable. Has anyone had a similar experience and how did you get the angel jumpstarted to real food? I know I saved some posts on this but cannot seem to find where I saved them!
I would appreciate any suggestions anyone can give. I think he enjoys this!!!
Please email or post.
Many thanks in advance.
