Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help. I'm really sorry to hear that Bess isn't feeling well, and she may very well have a fever. Does she have any other symptoms like vomiting and diarrhea? Are you able to take her temperature rectally?
You are listed as being off line. Her lethargy and weakness could be due to something serious that would require an emergency visit there. I know that it is night time there, but am hoping that you will be back online tonight. In the hopes of that, I have a couple more questions. What is the color of her gums, and when you push on them and they blanch, does the color return in 2 seconds or less? Is Bess breathing normally?
