Hopefully you will be able to see the attached video, if not I will try again.

My little Victor has been poorly for around a week now. He wasn't eating properly and couldn't bite into food so we took him to the vets. He had a procedure on Wednesday 10th August general anaesthetic however the vet couldn't see anything wrong with his teeth or jaw, even after an X ray. The vet trimmed his front teeth for good measure anyway.
He is drooling a bit, opens his mouth oddly wide and seemingly chews on nothing. I have been syringe feeding Recovery along with pureed carrot and apple since Wednesday. He will take a very small amount of 'normal' food such a grape or cucumber if it's held close to him and is around 1cm square. Anything even slightly bigger will fall out of his mouth.
I'm really very worried about him. He seems mostly alright in himself, just frustratingly cannot bite into anything and is gurning. He's on ranitidine, metacam and baytril. He's also lost weight.
Any help or suggestions? I would be so grateful as he means the world to me.
