    litter seperation anxiety. At this age it is not uncommon. It is not the food as much as once she has settled down for the day she misses the huddling when she has her afternoon nap. Simply put, the others are not there with mom to cuddle with. She will out grow this in time. For the time being give her a secure place surrounded by toys etc so she can bond with them.

    I doubt there is something wrong with her stomach but I think you should just do what the vet said
