Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Sadie seems to be in pain. With her history of having vulvar surgery, it's possible that the pain and lack of appetite are due to a urinary tract infection. I would get her to the vet so they can check her urine for infection and give her pain medication. If the urinalysis is normal, they will look elsewhere for the source of the pain by doing an exam and might suggest doing some blood work.
