My Jesse had his spleen and left adrenal gland removed as well as biopsies taken of nodules on his liver on March 5. He spent two days at the vets after and the first week or so at home was shakey (he was very weak, had difficulty walking) but he's doing great now. He doesn't seem to have the strength that he used to, though he does have tons of energy, and I'd like to see him put on a bit more weight, but otherwise he's doing wonderfully. Eating like a champ, bouncing off the walls, and kicking the snot out of his brothers.

I would suggest getting your girl back to the vet to find out what's going on. Obviously, something isn't right.
