Re: Syringe Feeding - NEED HELP PLS
I am so sorry you have to go through this. Syringe feeding is difficult because it breaks your heart having to watch them struggle. I had to syringe feed BubbleWrap when he had pneumonia. The vet assured me that making sure he had the nutrition he needed was key to making him better. I would not hesitate to syringe feed him if he is not eating properly but I would give him a chance to eat on his own. Also, you need to be careful that when you syringe feed him that the food does not get into his lungs it could make a URI worse or cause pneumonia. I am not an expert but this is just from my personal experience. Definitely talk to your vet. Hope you hedgie gets better soon.
