Jasper

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jasper?

Just his mouth I have taken him to the vet 3 time to fix it first time they removed his tooth and the second time they thought they left a fragment in there so he had to go under again and the third time they basically didn’t do anything

Sounds like Jasper has been through alot! Make sure he is on a good pain medicine from your vet as his mouth sounds painful. Water down his food into a slurry so he doesn't have to chew much. If he prefers dry food let it soak in some water or low sodium chicken broth before you give it to him. As far as the trouble defecating, I really like Miralax...it's a powder you buy at the drugstore. I'd sprinkle 1/8-1/4 tsp on each meal to help soften stool. It's a titration, so if he get diarrhea then back it off. If he doesn't poop for several days then he may need an enema at your vet.
