    Is she eating and drinking?? I would add some electrolytes to her drinking water. I have found chopping up fresh garlic and either putting it directing on their food or in their water as well, seems to give them a good immune boost as well. Apple cider vinegar is one of my best friends as well.... Hope she perks up soon!!
