Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr Altman and happy to assist you both today!

The normal rectal temperature range for a dog is 100-102.5. If a temperature is >103.5 or <99 then we do get concerned about hypothermia or hyperthermia in pets. Keeping her indoors during the day between 10-4 is ideal to minimize risk of exposure to the heat and yes fresh water access is critical as well

Please let me know any additional questions I can assist with today
