Good that he is doing better. He probably senses your stress which is not a good thing although it's hard not to feel stressed and anxious when they are ill. You ordered the Mazuri, correct? Hopefully you will get that soon. Sometimes I give Spee a few very small pieces of egg white. He also likes unsalted roasted cashews, again very very small pieces and he doesn't get a lot. I don't know about adding the dog food, though. Spee also liked Granny Smith apples. I would skin that and give him small pieces but I haven't given those to him in awhile because the last time I did that there were ants. I make all the birds frozen vegetables which I microwave and I give him corn, carrots and peas but he only likes the corn.
