Hi
Dog Veterinarian: Sheena Christensen,
 replied 9 months ago

Unfortunately there are no over the counter medications to treat fevers in dogs. So she really needs to see a veterinarian to get meds. They will be able to prescribe meds to bring her fever down and give her fluids to keep her hydrated and also bring her fever down. When she is feeling better, her appetite should return.

If she will eat at all right now, I would offer he canned dog food (bland) and mix in some water to help keep her hydrated.
