Good Morning Cindy and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry, Cindy, that it has taken me so long to answer your question. I fear that your sweet gal is suffering from either IBD or Inflammatory Bowel Disease or an intestinal lymphoma or other cancer lesion. I say this because, even though all parameters are normal, she is still not wanting to eat. This is very difficult to diagnose without invasive surgery to get biopsy specimens so the only thing you can do now is to help her remain hydrated and keeping her nutrition up. Give your gal Nutrical, available at the pet store, a dose every 4 hrs. This will also act as an appetite stimulant and if she is not eating for some other reason, this will help. I would also recommend, Cindy, that you give your gal 2-3 cc of Pedialyte every 4-6 hrs. This will keep her hydrated with the proper amount of electrolytes that she will require to fight what ever is causing this.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
