Hi Daniel,

It sounds like he has a sore throat.

Give him 2 drops of honey every 4 hours to sooth his throat.

Rub a drop into his gums to raise his blood sugar.

Drain the water from a can of tuna into a bowl. Let him lap it up for hydration.

Remove all dry food and any wet with chunks, pieces or shreds.

Feed only smooth pate canned food or baby food.

If he gets dehydrated give him tuna water drained from the can.

Please let me know how he is doing .

Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback; that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much!
