it can mean they're a bit dehydrated.

depends on if they are laying down or upright - can change from concave to convex. Can mean dehydration. Is she happy / normal behaviour or listless etc. If you are worried ring nhs direct/ gps out of hours number.

it can be depressed ( no jokes please smile) for dehydration or if as an indication of illness. If she's got a cold it may just be that she's under the weather.
