    Try him with some treats like meal worm to try getting his appetite back. Try not to force feed him . Just keep offering him different foods. Have you tried him with dry cereal? X

    Oh thank you so much we had no choice in feeding him as he was so dehydrated and thin, we will try above and get back to you. X
