At least you have Guiness back and now you can help him get better. If he hasn't been eating and drinking properly for a long period of time, he will be very sensitive to any kind of food right now and will possibly have stomach problems.
I would probably recommend giving him plain cooked chicken and rice etc for a period of time and then slowly introduce a good quality food that doesn't have a lot of additives in it. I don't know which country you are in, but in UK I would recommend Burns, JWB, Nature's Best and Dr Johns? Are you giving him tinned food?? That might be too rich for him right now.
Have you had him to the vet since you got him back - might be worth just getting him checked over to make sure everything is ok, especially after what he has gone through.
Good luck and let's hope he is back, fully fit, soon.
