Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. My moderator asked that I take a look at it.
I can see that we need to localize where this fever is originating from. Most fevers are due to inflammation and the inflammation associated with infection is most common although trauma, malignancy, and immune-mediated disorders - a vaccine reaction, e.g. - are considerations as well. Are there any other symptoms that might help localize this - sneezing, coughing, increased respiratory rate, pale mucous membranes as seen on her gums or tongue, vomiting, lameness, or swellings or wounds suggestive of abscess?
Which oral antibiotic have you given her, please? Has she had any vaccines?
