  • Awe, poor thing! :( Sounds to me like she's tired from being sick and sleep helps restore her energy. If there is no sign of fever I wouldn't worry. She wants to be with you because you make her feel secure. They make popscicles with pedialyte in them, maybe that would help until she gets her appetite back. Good luck :)

  • How long ago was she diagnosed and started meds? If she is still on her antibiotics, she may just be tired out from fighting off the infections, and is unable to tell you. If there is no fever and no real crying, I'd just humor her for a day or so and she should feel back to herself in a couple of more days.

  • the fever is a sign her body is fighting the infection and you should not give her any thing for it an less it goes over 101.
    Sleeping is also good helps the body heal. Just push drinks down her when awake don't worry much about eating she will eat when she gets hungry enough.
