Dee and Josie, thank you for your thoughts about Nugget's teeth. I have
wondered about his jaw but just in the past few days, so I haven't yet
asked my vet. She did take a full-body X-ray a few months ago, and maybe
she can see his jaw on that. I will check with her.
I am sorry to hear that Josie has sludge. With Eddie, I fed watery
veggies such as cucumber and green-leaf lettuce. I also fed corn silks
and corn shucks, since I had read somewhere that they might be of help.
In the last year or so with him, I had trouble encouraging him to drink
water, so I would make a pellet slurry with pellets and bottled water.
He and Nugget both enjoyed it, and Eddie wanted to eat his from a spoon,
so he had a spoon for his own use.
I hope this helps. Best wishes and wheeks to Josie. Do keep us posted.
Cindy, Nugget, and Stuart Little
