Thanks all! I just got home and she actually came into the living room, which is good, but she still hasn't eaten anything.

Alright, the baby girl has gastroenteritis. The Doc spent a lot of time poking and feeling her tummy area, checking for an impaction. She said she didn't feel an impaction but could feel that Niobe's GI tract was inflamed. So she gave her a shot of Cerenia (.40ml), which she said would start to settle things down pretty quickly. She got Amoxicillin (1ml twice a day), and Metoclopramide (Reglan?), half a tab once a day. I guess that will help keep her tummy settled.

And she was half a pound lighter than when she was in a couple months ago - she apparently had half a pound of hair on her body that is now gone. That's a lot of hair! lol

And the vet visit plus the meds was $36 - I love my vet!

I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.
