In this situation, it's advisable to observe her eating habits and ensure she has access to fresh water and a balanced diet appropriate for her age and breed. If she shows any signs of discomfort while eating or if there are any changes in her behavior or stool, these could be indicators of underlying issues that need attention.
To encourage eating, you can try offering her small, frequent meals of highly palatable food. Sometimes warming the food slightly can enhance its aroma and make it more appealing. Also, ensure that her eating area is quiet and stress-free, as a comfortable environment can encourage her to eat.
Keep an eye out for additional symptoms that may require immediate veterinary attention, such as vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, or signs of pain. If she exhibits any of these symptoms, it would be prudent to seek veterinary care promptly.
