By the way i think Tank gained alot of cheek muscle in a short amount of time. 2 days ago he wouldnt be able to eat bone but today i gave him a little chicken on spine and he crunched up the bone and chowed down
Wait - he ate the raw soup plain? That is really good! You can do one of two things here, but either way you need to be careful to be 110% sure that he is eating enough. Until he decides he likes the taste of the raw you'll probably need to do a fair bit of hand feeding either way. You can add the raw soup into the kibble soup like I said earlier and work on gradually increasing the amount of raw soup compared to kibble soup in the mix. Or IF he will eat the raw soup on its own, you can continue to feed that and work on gradually thickening the soup up by adding less and less water.
Either way it will be very important that you hand feed him a few times a day until you are absolutely sure that he will eat it on his own. You don't want him skipping any meals. Hand feed 3 times a day if you can until he will eat it on his own, if not do at least two times a day (breakfast and dinner). Keep a bowl of kibble soup in his cage during the day while you are gone for school/work etc - feel free to mix a little raw soup into that as well but ONLY if he will eat it on his own.
Yes he ate it plain but only off my hand! And I will continue to hand feed him couple times a day until I know he eats it by himself. Sorry I have been really busy with lacrosse. Update on tank. I said before he wouldn't eat big chunks..well now I an just put a whole chicken wing or leg and he will devour it without me needing to cut it up.
Simon is slowly taking some little chunks, but only when he's in a good mood. But its a good start I guess Still eating the soupie out of my hand even though it drips off my hand because its so thinned out.
Good boy. Have you tried using a spoon with the soup? You should do that. If he will not eat out of the spoon lower your hand to the spoon and slowly move it out of the way as he eats until he is eating out of the spoon. Repeat this until he will just eat it out of the spoon. You can then repeat this process from spoon to bowl until he will eat it out of the bowl on his own.
No luck I put some on the spoon and he just went the other way. Then I put some on my hand to see if he just wasn't hungry but he ate it off my hand. It wasn't that he didn't want it, it just was that he didnt want to eat it off the spoon.I lowered my hand closer to the spoon and once he got 2' from the spoon he would walk away.
