About a week ago, Jeremy stopped eating. He had been finicky up to then, and I figured he didn't like the food, but when he stopped eating altogether, I took him to the vet. He had some rotted teeth, and his mouth was swollen with an infection. The vet removed the rotted teeth and treated the infection with antibiotics, but he said that I have to make some decisions in two weeks when the infection subsides. Jeremy is 18 years old (human), and I don't want to put him through another surgery. I've been feeding him canned food and water-softened kibbles, and he looks much better health-wise, but I don't know if he is in pain. Has anyone dealt with this before? What should I do? Is it okay to just feed him soft foods from here on out? Is there any special food that would help the situation? Thanks.
