Hi this sounds like something called aggression trauma. This happens when a cat has been frightened by something and it often happens after a trip to the vets.

She needs some time to calm down and to also rebuild her confidence with the other cats again. the usual way to do this is to go through the introduction technique with her and the other cats. It does take a little time and effort but does help in the long run.

Here is the page with the technique

best wishes Kate
