Hey thanks for the response guys. To answer your question Ian he was apparently brand new when I bought him from a distributor at a show. I thought that the size of the him and his litter mates was small so I knew I was taking a chance.

Im not opposed to a trip to the vet but at his size and condition even if they found anything wrong the treatment would kill him for sure. Im thinking he was either inbred or poorly incubated and there aint no cure for that kinda thing anyway. I figure its mid-winter so a lax in feeding is appropriate the force feeding has kept him in good weight and his activity level seems good too. So Ill play nurse maid to him for a few more months and see what happens.
thanks
Jason
