My 3 yr old was bit by a dog yesterday, had to get 6 stitches.. and was sedated with ketamine.. that right there makes for a horrible day... and then he started throwing up and running a high fever... ER thinks he has a stomach virus on  top of everything else... great since he is supposed to be taking augmetum for the dog bite.. which I need to give to him with food.. well food doesn't stay down with a stomach virus.. and he is running 104 fever... and I cannot give him more motrin for another 30 min  which I would like to do to help lower his fever and help with the pain from the ketamine shot....


really... talk about a really crappy day for him.  And I have to drag him out of bed at 8 am to take him straight to our ped....

Isn't that a horse tranquilizer?

104 seems really high. I'd call your clinics on call just to check. Why risk it, ya know?

What happened to the dog?

That's some strong shit for a 3 yr old.
You can give him rectal Tylenol to help lower his fever. If you can't get his temp down, or get his antibiotics in him, I would go to the er. They can give him an Iv with meds in it.

At least his fever isn't from an infection?
Poor little man!
