I brought him in and they gave him fluids and some anti inflammatory. I brought him in because I couldn't handle it anymore. She said it could be a reaction to the flea meds or a little virus starting to form. We got him to eat a little bit of food and is fever has gone down to 104.5 now... thanks all for the advice ... I will be keeping a close eye on him .. he is snuggling up next to me and he seems to feel a little better

How is your doggie doing today? Did the fever come down?
and...How are you today did you get any sleep?

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

He is doing a lot better still eating only a little but I have him drinking tons of water... His fever has come down from a 105.4 to a 102.1 last I checked this morning.. I didn't get much sleep that night just because my nerves were so bad after I went to the ER vet and the injection she gave him made him have really bad accidents all night so I was up every 30 minutes letting him out and cleaning up urine. Which i didn't mind considering he was feeling so terrible

Thanks so much for asking ... Brutus says thanks too

He probably has a simple virus (like us and the flu), takes time to run it's course...

Glad he's feeling better...as long as he is drinking, dogs can fast for a long time, give him time, he will let you know

Glad he is feeling better! Similar thing happened to us once but my dog was 2- shivering, just laying down refusing to get up, wouldn't eat, wouldn't drink. I was so glad the e-vet is only 10 minute away (we live near a vet school). Of course, as soon as we get there the excitement had him acting much more normal but he still had to be treated for some parasitic or bacterial infection (not sure which). One of the more stressful nights of my life...
