    (Told you it was lame.)
    LOL--no that WAS funny. Actually it took me about 10 mins to find the right thermometer. (You see I just bought hubby an ear thermometer so he didn't worry about where "it had been").

    We (well me at home and the vet at the office) palpated her insides- no pyo, no obvious blockage or tenderness of any kind. Gums were a bit light colored, she looks like she is achy (like humans get with a fever) she walks carefully and missed when she tried to jump on the couch. Won't eat, won't drink-- definately not acting like the active girl she has always been. No shots recently (last one was in January)- hasn't drunk from water outside, no contact with wild animals. The dogs outside area isn't even on grass or dirt. That is why this has me totally stumped. Sandy

    It would be nice if they could tell you what is wrong Sometimes it is hard to tell if they are even sick at all because they are such tough little ones

    We are sending prayers for Domi!!
    Have they run a General Health profile on her to rule things out? When I worked at the animal hospital we used to see a lot of dogs presented with the same symptoms that had pancreatitis. My Yorkie had it and acted like it hurt to walk.
    We hope she is feeling better!

    Pancreatitis was also one of my guesses. But it tends to hit dogs that are older than she is and she is on the thin side. Fat, middle age and female (sounds like gall bladder problems in humans). She is a picky eater and she finished her dinner last night. We did a complete blood profile, so we should be able to start ruling out things. Thanks Sandy

    Did her fever go down Sandy. Hopefully it is just a viral thing. Prayers for good news on Domi!

    Her fever did go down with the shot. The shot had some sort of fever reducer in it. So - we will see how she is first thing tomorrow. This will be a long night. Thanks for your support and prayers -- they are very appreciated! Sandy
