The plain pedialyte is a great idea! Our vet is still open for another couple of hours, so I'm going to call and ask. Thanks! I was able to get Chica to take small amounts of water today, here and there, using a syringe and she is eating the wet/canned food with no problem, thankfully. I only had to do the honey yesterday/until she could have food today, but she sure liked that sweet stuff!

How about giving her ice chips? If she will take them, it should help keep her hydrated.
I'm definitely going to try the ice chips idea! Chica loves crunchy stuff, so I have a feeling she might really like that. Thanks!

I just wanted to update, and to thank you all again for your great advice and your kindness. I am happy to report that Chica is doing much better...normal stools, good appetite, drinking water on her own, and back to her happy, snuggly little self.

Aww my dear Deana, you, your family and your sweet Chica are all in my
thoughts. I wish you all good health. I'm glad baby girl is doing much better.
Thank goodness! Hugs.

Thanks, we are. My back is much better, thankfully. There was a stomach virus going around my husband's work, which he brought home and "shared" with our youngest and myself recently, but thankfully it's one of those quick/24 hour deals, and we're all feeling better now.
