I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.

While not eating and constantly vocalizing are important clinical signs, they're not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. They do need to be investigated by a vet, however, and because she was old enough for her first vet visit, vaccines, and worming at 6 weeks of age, it's important that she be attended to by a vet at your earliest convenience as she isn't protected from serious infectious diseases at this time.
