I'd give her a little enema, a little water or a tiny bit if fairy, original, miixed with some water, see if yo can get hold of some orontes too, we keep a bottle, but I would think that the vet would draw some up for you, I know it doesn't sound like watery mouth but could help with the gut situation, that's what I would do, maybe a little electrolytes too x

Okay, I'll try sugar next feed and if that doesn't work I guess it's an enema.  How do I mix and give an enema please?

Her output is creamy and frothy this morning.

I think if it's creamy, sounds like her constipation has improved, I'd not be giving an enema now if her stools are loosening x

Thanks Hellybee.  I've spent a bit of time watching her today and there were neither bowel movements nor straining on my watch.  However, OH has just done their night feed and tells me she's straining again and output is now mucousy.  I think I'll add sugar to her morning bottle per earlier post.  Am beginning to despair now  :(
