My son has fed her veggies since he got home from school and my husband says she seems okay. I've been at work all day.
Cappi is still at 1lb 9.8oz, not really gaining despite the extra veggies and twice a day hand feeding. I’m gonna take her back in later this week for the bloodwork and perhaps xrays. She seems to be more tired than she has been the past few days. Hard to believe I’ve only had her a week. Sigh.

I think if it were me, I'd go ahead and take her back in. She doesn't seem to be improving and if you wait until Friday, she could worsen.
I woke up in the middle of the night and she was munching on hay and then ate some pellets for a while. She’s not drinking a lot. This morning she was energetic and wheeling for her veggies, she’s eating away at cilantro, peppers and lettuce right now. I plan to top her up with CC too. I think she feels bad for about 2-3 hrs after her antibiotic but then seems ok.
I can’t really get her in today bc of work commitments that I can’t change. :-( She’s still 1lb 9oz this morning (before eating).
We have an appointment on Friday and the vet will check her teeth again and her temp for no charge. Yet again, she was completely wet and green after eating, so I want to know her teeth are ok. We’ll do some bloodwork while there too to see if we can rule out diabetes or infection. I wish she’d gain weight.
However...her temp was still high. They told me to come back for blood draw and I kind of got upset b/c that was the whole reason I took off work and came in. So they let me leave her there so they could take the blood and I'll come back later tonight to get her. Not sure why her temp would still be high, but if she really does have kidney issues - meloxicam will not be good for that long term. :-(
She gained from 715g to 725g, so a little but not much. :-/
