|First, yes, we are planning a vet appointment. Chiquitita has decided to quit eating. This is bad on many levels; mainly if she does not eat, she does not get her medicine. Friday, today is Sunday and we are 7 hours ahead of the States, she was finicky, Saturday she hardly ate at all, and today she has not eaten anything (it's almost 3PM). She does appear to have a small sore on her bottom lip, and we were told she has a cavity, however she only eats wet food these days so the tooth should not effect her ability to chew too badly. Her energy is close to normal, yet she does not appear to be enjoying her naps with the same enthusiasm as she normally shows while sleeping. That last sentence was strange, I know, but she usually sleeps with a very "happy" expression on her little face, yesterday and today there is no sign of enjoyment in her sleep, AND she did not follow me into the kitchen for breakfast... I'm worried- she's 16 and has had some major health issues. If anyone knows of a broth I could make her I'd be greatly appreciative of the recipe-she simply MUST have her meds. Or, if anyone knows if baby orajel can be used in case the sore on her mouth is causing the pain that is preventing her from eating. I would be greatful for any advice until we can be seen by the vet.
