Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
Did she have adequate milk for her wee ones?
What color are her gums or conjunctiva around her eyes?
Any scours?
Does she pass excessive amounts of urine or drink lots of water?
Any fever?
How long has she been off feed?
