My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years.

Any outward signs of illness?
Is he urinating well? Any issues?
The temperature is a problem. 100.5-102.5 is normal, over 103 we get concerned. We need to get the temp down asap. Please take some cloths with room temperature ware and apply to the groin, and neck area and some alcohol on a rag and wipe down the pads. This should help to lower it gradually. We do not want to shock the system. If we cannot get it down the ER Vet will be the next step. The drooling is nausea. You can Give Pepcid ac for that. If under 20 pounds 1/2 of a 10mg, 20-40 pounds 1/2 of a 10 mg and over 40 is 1 tablet of a 10 mg Pepcid Ac, For the stool you can give a table sppon of canned pumpkin, not pie filling to aid with the stool. It is a high fiber food. Some type of infection is brewing for the Temp to be that high. If it does not come down after the moist towels and the alcohol on the pads, I suggest a ER Vet visit tonight. If you can get it down, then a Vet visit in the Morning will be needed.
How is the dog doing? Has the temperature come down? Please update me on what is happening.
