Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if u can help.
If you have any dog pain meds: rimadyl or previcox or metacam...a dose if one of these will reduce a fever
You can give human buffered (enteric coated) aspirin. A 10-30 lb dog would get one human baby aspirin or 81 mg. do NOT give ibuprofen or Tylenol etc.
additionally, if your dog has a fever, it should be seen by a vet soon to determine th cause.
I hope this helps. Best wishes. Let me know if you have further questions.
