No we were going to bring her in tomorow
Dear customer,

The chances of urine or gastrointestinal infection might be there is the fever is not controlled and she is feeling pain in the lower abdomen area.

The urine and stool examination along with the blood counts will be helpful in the knowing the underlying cause.

You should have the test done.The oral antibiotics may be needed to control the bacterial infection.The commonly prescribed ones are septran, amoxycillin etc.

You should also giver her adequate fluid and water to prevent dehydration if she is still having diarrhea.

Let me know if you need any more information

Thank you

Reading your response reminds me of last night. She had very big burps "out of the Blue" and passed gas loud enough to make her laugh. Does that show or mean anything
