  • Fever is a sign that the body is fighting infection. If dehydration is caused by vomiting or diarrhea
    the fever would be a sign of an infection and the dehydration was caused by the infection not the fever. Make sense? I hope I didn't make your head spin!

  • She isn't vomiting or having diarrhea besides the fever and being moppy she isn't acting sick! She hasn't pee'd in about 10 hours and her mouth looks white that's y I guessing she dehydrated

  • I would take her to an emergency room if she has a fever and hasn't urinated in over ten hours.

    She is severely dehydrated. She needs to be taken to an emergency room immediately and given IV.
