Smile THANK YOU!! "Help Eating Problems 6/23".

Hi to everyone that helped me with feeding my BlueBoy. There were suggestions of soaking his food before I give it to him and IT WORKED!! I'm also looking thru the mini pellets to find the smallest ones and then dropping them into a spoon with water, let them soak for just a min or so and then feeding little at a time. Once soaked these pellets want to go to the bottom quickly, so I give him a chance to get some. He chases the ones dropping to the bottom, so I know he wants to eat. He is getting 2-5 each feeding now (2 x day) so he will be fine. Just takes a little more effort to feed him vs the other 3 but he's worth it. Thank you everyone that answered my "Help Eating Problems blog on 6/23".

You were all most helpful in solving my problem. BlueBoy also thanks you!!

I'm glad the info others gave worked! Just to add my 2 cents; I wouldn't feed more than 3 pellets each feeding. I feel 5 per feeding is too many. JMHO

I agree that 5 per feeding is too much. 2-3 should be enough.
