Hi, I can help you with your question today.
I'm concerned, based on your description, that Cassie may have a condition called Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis (HGE). This can cause severe dehydration and also secondary infections.
I highly recommend having her evaluated by your local vet as soon as possible. I would start with a physical exam and blood work. This may be enough to confirm the diagnosis of HGE. If we do, she will need to stay in the hospital on IV fluids for 2-3 days.
Until you can get her in, encourage her to drink as much as possible using dilute chicken broth or water from a tuna can.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
