Red face diet

Am I overreacting? My baby Jenga who is 9wks old, is eating but not gaining weight. I keep telling myself give her time( came home Saturday afternoon). She'll eat but could it be that she's still adjusting? She is 66-68g. She has appt with vet tomorrow. She eats peas,carrots,corn, avi cakes but small amounts. Been going in about every hour & hand feeding for encouragement. Any suggestions?

If she is eating I wouldn't worry unless she is underweight. Feel her keel bone and if it's super prominent then she is too skinny, if the fat around the keel is flush with the bone then she is a good weight, if the fat around bulges outwards from the keel bone she's too fat.
