Have the mouth sores cleared up? If not it's likely still painful to eat normally & easier on him to be syringe fed

Have you tried adding some tempting treats to the top of the food?
- freeze dried chicken such as PureBites
- pinch of catnip
- pinch of parmesan cheese
- dab of melted butter
- a crushed cheerio or krunchie
- bits of deli meat
- bits of BBQ chicken especially if warm
- add a teaspoon of warm water

Slightly warming the food by placing the dish in a bowl/sink of hot water - just be sure the food & dish isn't hot
