She needs to be at the vet ASAP. I'm surprised that she isn't already dead since she's had diarrhea for over a week!

It's not that bad, but it's been happening for over a week. When animals are having issues like that, they're also dehydrating. More small animals die from common things like diarrhea and URIs than complicated things because people don't bother going to the vet because "it's not that bad". They weigh around a pound, they don't NEED for it to be "that bad" to be dehydrated by it.

Sounds like teeth problems.
You need to get the vet to check her molars...
