Default Hunger Strike

I just brought Ygritte home a week ago from today, she turns one at the end of May, and I know she recently gave birth to a hoglet that didnt make it. I am getting worried because as far as I can tell, she hasn't eaten on her own since she got to her new home. I have been syringe feeding her for the past few nights, 3-5 ml a night (which is a huge struggle), in hopes of sparking her appitite, but to no avail. From what I can tell, she is somewhat active at night and she is drinking water. She also seems to enjoy snuggling and exploring around the bed as well as burrowing and hiding. Any suggestions on getting her to eat more, should I take her to the vet?

What food are you giving her? Is it the same food as she was getting at her previous home?
