Hi!

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Those can be irritating to the mouth and esophagus

I would suggest that you try feeding some canned food with two tablespoons of canned pumpkin in it

This will push everything along and if there is a burr stick somewhere that should sort it out

Make sense?

Hi

Just checking in on Micky

Did the pumpkin work?

And it would be great if you could rate me- That is how I am paid

Thanks, Paul
