Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

This sounds concerning for Junior. She is too young and too little to do a wait-and-see approach. If you offer her favorites at home, even trying some people food such as white rice and boiled chicken breast (or cottage cheese) and she refuses this, then I must recommend you have her seen tonight at your local emergency clinic. There are many possible reasons for her to be unwilling to eat and lethargic ranging from running a fever which can be from infection to ingestion of something unusual which has upset her system to a more severe issues such as liver or kidney problems.

I am at a point I need to know what questions you have. I hope that the information I provided has been helpful.

Please let me know if for any reason you need further clarification, have more questions, or were expecting a different type of answer.
