Please remove Pine Bedding it is toxic to Rodents and should not be used. It can cause all types of issues Pine and Cedar are toxic. The best bedding is the recycled paper bedding called Yesterdays News.
She should be getting a Vitamin C supplement daily to prevent Scurvy, as this is very important.
She will need to be seen by a small animal/Exotic Vet with this issue, but we can offer some first aid until you can get her in.
Please get some Pedialyte and mix with water and syringe feed her a few CC's at a time. This is for hydration. This is very important since we do not want her dehydrated. For food, you can grind her pellets into a fine powder and mis with the Pedialyte and water to make a slurry and again fed with a syringe. This will help until she can be seen. If you can get to the Pet shop, the Have Critical Care which is a supplemental feeding mixture. Since we do not know why she is off food and fluids, we have to maintain her until you can get her into the Vet.
