    Unhappy Fever/Throwing Up

    Hello,

    My Lola is a few months old, and has had all vaccinations & is fed soy, grain, filler, corn, and artificial filler free dog food. So she's not really had any digestion problems before. She threw up this morning early & about an hour ago threw up her breakfast also. I thought I had read somewhere that dogs can run fevers. I felt her head and ears and she feels warm like she may have one. Does anyone know if that's true and how to check for fever? She hasn't stopped drinking, which is good for now. Hopefully she won't get too dehydrated. Advice?

    She is drinking which is good, but since she is that young and she feels hot for you I would take her to the vets. I'm guessing you don't have a thermometer that you could use and take her rectal temp? A dog is running a fever when the temp is more than 39,5C/103F.

    You can take her temp rectally and it should be around 101.5, give or take a little. Winnie's temp was nearly 104 once when she was at the vet for a check up. She was so excited to see everyone and acting really WILD, so the vet wasn't concerned about the elevated temp--it was the excitement and activity that raised it. Hope your baby is better soon.

    get an anal thermometer from petsmart/petco. Normal temperature is 102 degrees F or below.

    Need to keep it down if above that ie 103F by spraying alcohol on his paw pads. Keep an eye on it. If controlled fine, if lingering then a vet visit is needed. If persistent, emergency vet even.

    Thumbs up Re: Fever/Throwing Up

    Thank you all for your advice. A thermometer is something I need for sure. I'll be making a trip to the pet store asap! She seems to be doing a little better now. I fed her a light lunch, soft food, since she threw up her dry. She was acting very hungry and so far she's held that down. Still drinking. I'll continue to keep an eye on her and if she starts throwing up again, or getting worse a trip to the vet will be in our near future. I really appreciate having a place to go for questions, advice, and sometimes a place to come to talk to others about their beloved fur babies. Hope you all have a great Hump Day. Much <3

    You've been given great advice already, just keep an eye on her and if she has a fever take her to the vet.
    I hope Lola is okay, and it's nothing serious. Please keep us posted on how she is doing.
