I'm sorry to hear that your chihuahua is experiencing these symptoms. Based on the information provided, there are a few potential causes for her symptoms.

1. Eye discharge: The green mucus coming out of her eyes could be a sign of an eye infection. This can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or even allergies. It's important to note the consistency and color of the discharge, as well as any other accompanying symptoms such as redness or swelling.

2. Lack of appetite and water intake: Not eating or drinking water can be a concerning sign, especially in a young puppy. It could be due to various reasons such as gastrointestinal issues, infections, or even dental problems. It's important to monitor her closely and ensure she stays hydrated to prevent dehydration.

3. Lethargy and crying: If your dog is not walking, crying, and seems generally lethargic, it could be an indication of pain or discomfort. This could be related to the underlying cause of her other symptoms or could be a separate issue altogether. It's important to observe her behavior and look for any signs of distress or discomfort.

Given the severity of her symptoms, it is recommended to seek veterinary attention as soon as possible. A veterinarian will be able to perform a thorough examination and run any necessary tests to determine the underlying cause of her symptoms. They may also prescribe appropriate medications or treatments based on their findings.

In the meantime, there are a few things you can do at home to help keep your dog comfortable. Ensure she has a quiet and warm place to rest. Offer small amounts of water frequently to prevent dehydration. Avoid feeding her any new or unfamiliar foods and stick to her regular diet once she regains her appetite. Keep her eyes clean by gently wiping away any discharge with a clean, damp cloth.

It's important to note that without a proper diagnosis from a veterinarian, it is difficult to provide specific treatment recommendations. The underlying cause of her symptoms will determine the most appropriate course of action. Therefore, it is crucial to seek professional veterinary care for a comprehensive evaluation and appropriate treatment.
