Default Fever

Lenny has a fever I think! His nose is hot and his whole body is hot under his belly is even hotter he wants to just sleep! He ate and drunk a little bit of water and I read to damp a rag and place it on him that made him a bit better for like 5 minutes.. I'm so scared for him please someone help! It's 12am here in pa and there's no close vets that are open 24hrs!

Has he been eating/drinking normally? How is his breathing? What color are his gums?

Are there any after-hours emergency clinics in your area?

Yes he ate boil chicken twice today and drunk water not that much but he drunk some. His breathing is a lil faster then usual and his gums are pink I checked and it's not white. I'm giving him a ice cube right now and he is licking it. And Tommrow is when I can take him.. there isn't a close one by. 😣

Can you take his temp, it's very easy to do .... some lube (if none in house use butter) and keep him standing by supporting him under tummy, gently insert thermometer and Bob's your Uncle. May be easier with 2 people if you're a novice, one to hold & support, the other to insert. There's probably videos on youtube.

No point in rushing off to a vet, especially an emergency one if you don't need to ... we don't rush our kids to hospital everytime they throw up, won't eat, get a nose bleed or a temp, but we always seem to when it's our fur kids, I wonder why that is.

I don't have a thermometer in this house. I really need to buy one. He is playing with me now and seems a bit better.

His nose after its wet and cold it goes back to warm. His neck is very warm and so is his belly. Gosh i hope he doesn't have something severe! I would just die if something were to happen to this pup! 😭

I think he sounds okay for now, he may just feel a little off. I would keep an eye on him and give your vet a call in the morning if he isn't improving.

I thought he was better but I guess not he is still sick. He won't even eat boil chicken his favorite. I'm going to take him to the vets ASAP!
