Foster not eating/drinking

    I picked up my foster with intention to adopt yesterday. She's 2 years and 11 lbs. She has not eaten or drank since we got home last night. Now this morning she vomited...white phlegm-like consistency. My rescue paperwork says this can be part of the transition but if it persists after 2 days I should call them. My concern is the vomiting. She's been sleeping most of the time too. She was transported from Texas to NY just 5 days ago. She's on antibiotic doxycycline for 2 weeks and panacur powder for worms for 5 days which I am told is standard treatment. Since she is not eating she wouldn't take the panacur powder with peanut butter. Did anyone have a similar experience? What was the outcome? Thank you
