jello for hydration paralysis jaw.

Our dog has trigeminal neuritis & is unable to swallow, eat or drink, as the cranial nerve affected affects his jaw musles, etc.

In order to feed him food must be put in the back of his throat, his jaw closed manually. Also, he can not drink! Water all spills out, we are experimenting with a turkey baster.

My idea to keep him hydrated is to prepare blocks of JELLOW & give him this. I will use no salt, no sugar gelatine prep. from the health store.

Any feed back, advise please.

Thanks.
