I am so sorry Emilia is not feeling well.With an injury as you describe it can commonly result in difficulty finding a comfortable position. And whether the reduced appetite is related to her discomfort or the aspirin has upset her stomach is not yet determined.Below is a link to a pain assessment form that is wonderfully helpful in determining her level of discomfort and whether additional pain management is necessary. If she is restless and having difficulty finding a comfortable position for more than a few hours I would consider a veterinary er to get her appropriate pain medication that will hopefully allow her to rest comfortably today.
Pain assessment score here
You can try a few things:Pepcid 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours (famotidine) to settle her stomachBoiled white rice and lean meat to entice her appetiteKeeping her quiet today which means restricting her access to steps/ stairs and furniture on and offBenadryl 1 mg/ pound which can help allow her to rest but will not help with her pain level
