    We have a 1 year old Pekin female who has quickly become sick and has seemingly stopped eating. We noticed that she had some blood in her urine one day and from that point on she has not been eating. We took her to a vet and her put her on an antibiotic and gave her some fluids but she still seems disinterested in treats and eating in general. She is only really expelling urine and not any solid waste. Tonight we found her with blood around her vent. Any ideas as to what might be wrong would be greatly appreciated. We've been force feeding her some critical care (not tube feeding) as that is what the vet gave us and suggested. She's lost a lot of weight though, but still seems energetic about foraging, swimming and preening.
