Last week I posted about my little girl who was having soft poop and vomiting after giving her amoxicillin. The day this started I separated her from her sister. They are 3 months and have been together since birth. We went to the vet who said it was caused as a side effect. We stopped the amoxicillin and she gave me some fortiflora and carnivore care. She is still not eating but is drinking and still active. Last night I forced her to eat a little bit of baby food from a syringe. Could he not eating possibly be caused by stress of separating them? The other sister is just fine. Any ideas?

Yes, separating her from her sister could cause her to stop eating. You need to syringe feed her frequently each day until she is eating normally on her own.

Is there a reason you separated them? If you are keeping both, they can stay together as long as they were getting along.

She is supposed to go to her new home. But obviously not until back to normal. What is the best thing to syringe feed? All I had was peach and sweet potato baby food. Also how much should I give her?

I use A/D formula when I have to syringe my hedgies. I get it from my vet. When I did it, I would fill up the syringe and slowly feed my hedgie until it wouldn't eat any more. I didn't really keep track (bad mama here), but I fed them at least 2 times a day.
Keep leaving her regular food out as she might decide to start eating on her own. You could also try putting some of her food in her house and monitor it to see if she's eaten.
I hope your little one starts feeling better, poor girl.

Thanks guys, she is not a fan but is eating the a/d from the syringe. I woke up to a poppy wheel today. I never thought I would be excited to see that until now

After a few days, almost a whole can of a/d, and some benebac, she still isn't eating on her own and is still having green diarrhea. Any ideas or just more time?

I would take her to the vet at this point. Is she losing weight?
