Got the PQ and acetyl-l carnitine thought i'd be smart and get it into him,mixed the PQ and acetyl-l in with a handful of timothy pellets and a ODTB cube. Made it mushy like he likes it put in the stuff and gave it to him,took one sniff and nope wont eat it. Only gave half a scoop of the PQ and half the dose of the acetyl-l.

Didn't eat his breakfast very well either left half of it this morning,so he's being picky again about feed. His pain level is at a 2 1/2 so he sure isn't over the top with pain today.Not pain free either,but that wasn't the goal here.

He's not shaking and his pulse isn't extremely high was at 57 beats per minute when i took it this morning.

he likes cinnamon so would that be a safe thing to flavor his feed with,to get him to eat? tried some tums nope not good enough. I read something about cinnamon and that it shouldn't be used,don't recall why,so does someone know the reason not to use cinnamon?? I sure don't want to cause jasper yet more problems,i'v caused enough as it is.
