Hi this is Susan, an expert at Just Answer.

Regarding your baby gorilla, breathing difficulties is usually not a good sign. That, coupled with her lack of appetite are two signs that your baby needs to visit the veterinarian, asap. It could be any number of issues, but pneumonia comes to mind this time of year, and antibiotics will be needed to get a handle on this as quickly as possible.
