    Default Fever?

    Miila has the chills. Well mostly they r gone now but I couldn't figure out why. Then she started panting lightly so I thought she must have a fever? No reason to be panting, she is sitting with me on the couch. She is eating fine, had breakfast and a cookie a bit ago to try and cheer her up. When I was thinking fever I decided to give her an ice cube, something that actually makes her crazy. If she just hears the ice being pressed on the freezer she goes nuts. Gave her an ice cube and she didnt want it.

    Awwww poor girl. I wonder what's wrong with her especially since she doesn't want her ice cube but yet comes running for it.

    Do you have a dog rectal thermometer to chk her temp? Does she have sniffles or lethargic? Only way to really know is to chk her temp. Make sure she sips water so she's not dehydrated if she does have a fever. I hope she starts to feel better soon!

    Ok thanks for the info @christyjulene. I am not a fan of the booty temp taking, haven't done it before and don't have a thermometer that I feel is accurate. I use a forehead one on my kids. But I will buy one just for the pups to have on hand now. She is acting fine now. Lasted a couple hours where I could tell she just wasn't right and was fevery or what it appeared to me. Once she got over it, she went back to trying to hump cutty, eat ice and eat whatever else I could feed her. 2 days ago after playing in the yard she acted this way but I thought I had accidentally smacked her with the tail of the kong wooba and maybe had scared her. Lasted a short whole and she was over it. Didn't even occur to me she might have had a fever. Dunno why she would then and again today tho. She was inside the house while I was out watering so I know she didn't eat anything in the yard that was toxic. Hope she doesn't do this again tomorrow morning, will let you know if she does tho.

    I feel the tips of the ears... if they are hot or warm -- usually a sign of a fever (learned this in daycare). I pretty sure you can give aspirin, but not sure of the dosage - be back with that info

    baby aspirin .... 1 pill for 30lbs of dog

    @cali~jenn...and all...

    if aspirin is coated type, make sure you crush it to get in their system right away.

    Very important if giving to someone having a suspected stroke or heart attack.

    Keeping y'all in prayers...let us know...GOD bless!
