Thanks so much for the input.
I will try more frequent meals, though I admit I don't hold alot of faith in it. I have difficulties getting him to eat meals 4-5hrs apart, so I don't know if he will touch it. But it can't hurt to try
I will try every 2.5hrs tomorrow and see how it goes.
The ONLY thing I can continuously get him to eat is the canned Wellness 95% meat meant for supplemental feeding. I mix it with water and use it as a broth for his kibble and occasionally it will work.
I do feed things such as chicken or beef ( he just came off of a chicken and rice diet for diarrhea ), it just adds up quite fast in the money department.
I didn't know about eggs or sardines, I will try those.
I have no problems with the work, in fact I just want him to fill out.....he looks emaciated to me, but the vet said he was ok. We are due back at the vet on the 20th but I may sneak in for a weight sooner.
He was born Oct.10th. His weights are as follows:
Nov.23 6.2lbs (6.5wks old)
Dec.1 8.6lbs (7.5wks)
Dec.8 9.6lbs( 8.5wks)
One thing I found out tonight:
He seems to like eating at night better..... I offered some food about 3hrs after dinner, and he ate. The only issue is I've read that I shouldn't feed him before bedtime, but that's what I have done. (this is the second time I tried it, and both times he ate).
Is there harm of feeding him at 8-9pm when he goes to bed at 9:30pm?
