Actually, it is a temperature, which does indicate some type of infection/illness -- the body is trying to fight off whatever it is.
I do not think it is that high though. A dog's regular temperature is between 101.5 and 102.5, so this is like when we have a temperature of 100. Since my regular temperature tends to be 97.4, at 100, I feel pretty sick, but I am not dying.
I agree it isn't good for the dog to have a temperature for a couple days like that. I would definitely run blood work, and keep her inside in the AC as much as possible. Keep her hydrated.
I would probably run a tick panel too.
I hope she is feeling better soon.
