Hello, and thanks for the question.
Sorry to hear about your horse's illness. A temp of 104 is indeed something to be concerned about, however a fever can be brought on by numerous conditions. I'd like to ask a few questions so that we might get closer to an answer.
1): How old is your horse?
2): What is her living environment like (stall, pasture, local stable, etc.)
3): What vaccines is she current on?
4): Are you noticing any runny nose or coughing, or anything else unusual?
5): How is her overall attitude? Is she wanting to lie down at all?
6): How long have you had the horse?
Thanks, ***** ***** looking forward to hearing from you. Also: How much Banamine did you give her, and how much co you think she weighs. Did you give the Banamine in her muscle or vein?
