Here's the web site for the pork recipe. Instead of cutting it, I put it through the meat grinder, with extra fat - preferably pork if you can get it - if not use ghee.

I would then do what SCM suggested - run it through a food processor to make a good puree. Something I did with the medical syringes was to enlarge the holes 1/32 or 1/64 of an inch. Helps to relieve blockage when pushing the food out.

Here's a web site for those who are not familiar with e-tube feeding to have a look at and understand where we're coming from in regards this style of force feeding.

Hope all this helps. If I can be of any further help, just let me know.
Thanks for all the info I'll have a look at it tomorrow and let you know how he does. Fingers crossed
