I am not a vet, but if he will eat the chicken baby food, I would
just stick with that. If he likes nutrical, maybe add a little of
that, also. ANd I wouldn't bother telling the vet he won't eat the
A/D. The important thing is to have him eating something. As he
starts to feel better, he may expand on what he is willing to eat.
