Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Amy's anorexia, eye lid (?) droop, and presumptive fever are all important symptoms but they're not pathognomonic for any one disorder. An eyelid droop, however, can represent both Horner's syndrome - an interruption to the sympathetic nervous supply to the eye - and facial nerve paralysis. Please clarify what you mean by "left eye is drooping" and let me know if you still need help. In most cases such a patient as Amy will need a thorough physical exam from her vet.
