Customer Question

I have 2 littermate golden doodles. The first was sick and was diagnosed with suspected colitis and was placed on an iv and then healed perfectly within 24 hours and had no fever - the 2nd just started and this one has a fever of 105 but was on the iv today and will not eat and is still vomitting.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: I think I gave them chew bones from hartz and found out they were from thailand and that may be it but no clue - also we have acorns they chew on
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Jet 5 month
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Jet?
Customer: I am just concerned because he has fever and the other never did -

It is very concerning that he has a fever of 105. Do I understand that he had IV fluids at the vet today and you picked him up and is at home with you now?

I know you submitted your answer about an hour ago. Is his fever still 105?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Good! Any time any of my patients have a fever or 105 or more, I definitely recommend they be hospitalized and on IV fluids to reduce the fever. Is he receiving any other medications?
