There is a lot of controversy right now on whether or not pineapple juice is useful since the enzymes it is touted for need to get to the right place. It has fiber, though, and may add to palatability.
Pumpkin is awesome for GIT problems. It is high in fiber and is a good nutritional treatment for diarrhea or constipation. It is being used often in the veterinary field in dogs, cats, cavies, and other species. I have used it off and on as well in my CC mix. Goes over well with the pigs as well.
Edit: Just checked out the Naked Juice website (www.nakedjuice.com, imagine that?)
It looks as if it is another good juice, perhaps with a bit fewer nutrients percentage-wise, but quality ingredients nonetheless. I will check it out sometime. The closest store is only an hour and a half from home!
We have not checked teeth under anesthesia but extensively with the scope and there does not seem to be a problem. I have had a pig with severe maloclussion and subsequent surgery etc. Ewenice just does not seem to be experiencing the same symptoms at all, though she is now sneezing and snuffling a little tonight guess it is back to the vet tomorrow. I sure hope she is okay, I do worry at her age!

what else could I be adding to help Jessie maintain her weight?
She is also getting veggie juice 4-6 times a day from veggies that we put through the juicer once a day.
Any suggestions much appreciated, she is still finding it hard to swallow at times and really opens her mouth and really chews.
I am in Australia and things you have suggested like Naked Juice´s Green Juice and Odwalla´s I have never heard off. Many thanks. Jessie has an abscess on her jaw, whilst under vet had look in her mouth and found swelling and scar tissue.
Vet can not understand why Jessie's mouth is swollen, NO pus and antibiotics she has been on for 5 months.
Do you already have a medical thread on Jessie? If so, you might add your handfeeding questions to that one. If not, you might want to start one.
