You are doing everything right, IMO:)
I don't like to say this but ----- when this happened with my Arab (he didn't have any back teeth, ulcer issues, also a picky eater), I did the same thing ---- soaked-to-mush hay cubes & rice bran, plus his needed supplements and fed him 3-4 times daily.
Toward his end time, the vet gave him a pretty thorough hands on physical. She felt he had internal tumors, somewhere in the back. By then he was 29 and nothing could have been done, even if surgery would have been possible.
I am sorry to bring something like that up but tumors are possibility. Has your vet given any input?
