Will is still getting his tummy full mostly from slurries. I leave tempting solid food out for him, but end up throwing it out. His preferred slurry is vanilla Ensure, some greens, banana (his potassium count was low in his most recent blood panel, so his doc recommend bananas), water, pedialyte. I've decided to give him liquid calcium daily as well. I would like some more nutritious slurries, though. Give him some variety, too. I'd welcome some more recipes if anyone has some ideas! Thanks. (ps I've seen MKs recipes)

Prism, thank you SO MUCH! The Oxbow product looks good to me, too. I'll call his vet tomorrow.
The iguana den slurry looks like an excellent procedure back to health. Both brought me to tears though as I read about the risks, underlying causes, etc. Will's vet didn't seem concerned, so I wasn't. More frustrated than concerned.
Willie has had health issues for too long now! I think I'll begin a thread under illness about anorexia. Thank you very much for posting both sites and I'll take it from here. Any more info from you and others will be so welcome
Nancy, Tell Will I said to stop worrying his momma so much and eat his food like a good little iguana!!
In the event that he still refuses.... Here's a thought.... I have fed all sorts of veggies and greens made into a slurry. I ran normal food thru the processor, but there were still some chunks that were too big to suck up into a dropper. Sooooo....I used a baby medicine dropper with the squeezy thing, but I cut the end off to make the hole slightly larger so that it would suck up the tiny bits of food. Don't know if that will be helpful to you, but it worked great for my situation.
