On December 20th, we started Mango on a new diet. We are only feeding him a specific elimination diet that we are receiving from an online group that does nutritional rehabilitation for feather pluckers. We had to remove all of Mango's other food to ensure he keeps consistent, and to get him to actually consume this food. His stubbornness lasted for about 24 hours before he finally gave in and tried eating. Now we can't keep him from being a glutton. He's sneaking off and eating this food any chance he can get.
Part of the reason for this post was to keep an online journal of his progress as he goes through the program. Here are some of the photos from Dec 20.
