Oh shoot! We almost did that today but I chickened out of trying to make him swallow anything...Thank you maggie! My friend will be back tomorrow and I will have it mixed up and ready to go. I am not very confident doing anything intrusive to him by myself yet. But I will soon be. Funny, you would think about 28 years of having him I would be able to do this stuff. He has been so darn healthy til now
Mix the critical care and lactulose, then just using the syringe, stick the end in the corner of his mouth and just put a dab on his tongue...and just keep doing that... you CAN do it...

Well, he seems more active. I soak him for 30 minutes, the he walks around my lawn for about another 30 minutes. The back in enclosure. I do this 2x a day. Still will not eat or poop...
