Does she respond to food made into "soup" with warm water? Or salt-free broth? Maybe her gums hurt and she doesn't want to deal with the discomfort. I know that a couple days after surgery is when I often hurt most because of swelling etc. Does she seem to want to eat, but just not do it, or is she not even interested if something tasty is near her? Another thing is to ask the vet if either enalapril or furosemide (lasix) cause loss of appetite.
