The adult male opossum that was hit by a car and brought in to me is doing much better. With his jaw being injured he was unable to eat any solid foods without causing pain. He has been on a liquid food diet for two weeks and had to lap up all of his food with his tongue to help prevent any stress to his jaw bone. Although now he is able to eat soft fruits with the peel removed, steamed vegetables, and moist kibble. But he still enjoys lapping up his yogurt. His breathing is much better now too and I haven't heard him wheeze in over a week since he has had his full treatment of antibiotics. Hopefully I will be able to post some release pictures soon!
