Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Yes, Moxie needs to see a vet at your earliest convenience. While the symptoms you mentioned - lethargy, anorexia, and hypothermia - are important, they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one disorder and so a thorough physical exam including a complete blood count are essential in such a pet.
My primary concern is that she might be profoundly anemic. Please check her gum and tongue color for me. They should be nicely pink - not whitish. Please respond with additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
