Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No,not eating, no diarrhea,sick small amount bile brown
Veterinarian: Dr. Jenn, Veterinarian replied 8 years ago
You need to give a bit of karo syrup or maple syrup on her gums to get her blood sugar in check-Due to your baby's size and age she is going to have to see a vet-not eat/drinking will lead to dehydration which she could die from! Blood work would be a good idea as she may have an underlying medical condition which needs to be addressed and treated.
