Mouse is refusing to eat

I have tried everything and anything! Waiting it out is not an option. I know she just had major surgery but a pig who refuses to eat is a very sick pig and i am not waiting it out any more. I forced fed her honey and the meds in a syringe tonight. Surprising it wasn't as difficult as i thought it would be , that is another sign things are not right.

Ken is coming to see her tommorrow morning..

Sending good thoughts to you and Mouse. I'm really hoping the honey and meds will kickstart her appetite. I know you're worried, Janice. I also know Mouse is in the best possible hands.

I force fed her yogert threw a big sringe this morning. She swallowed about 12 cc's.
Ken Mcquisten stopped in this morning to see her. He sat with her for about an hour checking her over. She ate a little peice of toast for him. Ken checked her over and left feeling confident that she would be eating a little better by tommorrow morning.
This afternoon after forcing honey and meds into her she ate two saltines and a few corn chips. Not exctly ideal hospital food but trying something salty was a new effort.
