What do I do about reduction of hours?

I work for a small dental practice. I have been there for almost 6 years and I have never called off. The only days I have missed were approved vacation days. I was was hired as a full time employee. I have had full time hours in excess at times of over 40 hours a week. 7 months ago a new employee was hired. She has taken over my position with the doctor and has my previous work hours. That has left me with almost nothing to do. As a result they have reduced my hours down to 25 hours a week. I have requested more hours without results. I know that they want me to quit. I don’t feel like I should have to. But this is not a livable wage for me. Is unemployment an option for me? What can I do?
