Check he has not got food material impacted in his cheek pouches if he has try to soften it with warm water and a little olive oil and gentle massage. Check water and food intake and corresponding output. Weigh him as accurately as possible and if he is loosing weight make an appointment for him to be seen as soon a the weight loss is noticed.
