I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. If Lena has remained anorexic for more than 24 hours she's already dehydrated and electrolyte imbalanced and in need of supplemental fluids and electrolytes as would be given by needle by her vet. I regret that it isn't clear to me what "clear liquids coming out of her nose or mouth" implies. Her vet should be able to clarify that for you. How long has Lena been ill? How old is Lena? Has she been vaccinated? Has she been wormed? Has she been tested for the feline leukemia/kitty AIDS viruses? Are there other worrisome symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, vomiting, or diarrhea?
