Yes, I am almost embarrassed that I freaked out so much!
He now eats better than before the float. I noticed when I gave him carrots and apples (cut in chunks of course) before the float he had to roll it around in his mouth, sometimes drop it, before he could eat it. I wasn't sure if it was just because his mouth is *so* small. Now he can handle chunks, and he eats his hay a little faster.
Also...his bad breath went away? Don't you think that is odd? He had an odor coming from his mouth before...you did not even need to be close to him, just be near him...and you could smell it. When he licked my hand, I would have to wash it immediately because it STUNK. It was gross! I figured I would get the vet out here after the float...thought maybe a sharp tooth caused a cut in his mouth and it was infected...but now I smell nothing! I will of course keep checking to see if it comes back, but I am happy!
Thanks for asking!
