The wet food is his pellets, ground and mixed with critical care and water. He can’t eat solid food until his teeth get trimmed so he gets several bowls of pellet slurry a day. He gets so excited he climbs into the plate. Because of his teeth issues he eats well off a plate but not from anything else.
Look at this face though

Amazon carries a few liquid bandage products made for animals. I use New Skin on my cracked fingertips in the winter and it works well. The only problem is that it stings so you’d have to get one of the sting-free products.

K gonna search amazon for sting free new skin products. The foot cage thing sounds cool, as does the show, totally something my daughter and I would watch together. I
Going to see if I can find some episodes.
He can eat off a spoon but he’s a slow eater and he eats a LOT (2-3 full bowls a day). It would just take too much time. He’s underweight so I make sure he’s always got some available. I saw an elevated soap dish I’m going to go get and try and see if it will help.
Good news is he’s put in a ton of weight cuz he eats non stop. He is no longer skeletal, just thin. I had to order more critical care as he’s already eaten two bags (and they were mixed half and and half with ground pellets)
He goes in for his dental tomorrow (finally, yay!) so I am hoping he can finally get back to a more normal life. Poor little guy has been through so much.
Halloween is TRYING to eat solids but still struggling, I am hoping it is just because he is still a bit groggy from the sedation and his mouth is a bit sore, I am hoping that over the next few days he regains the ability to eat solids. In the meantime he has a selection of dry pellets, wet pellets, hay, and finely chopped veggies in his cage to choose from and hopefully something will entice him. He will get syringe fed tonight if he does not eat a significant amount today. He is trying though.
He has gained 0.1Kg since his last visit so that is good.
Sadly one of his feet is getting red again so I might have to wrap it again. For now I am applying the cream very sparingly and keeping an eye on it.
