Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
This sounds extremely concerning. I suspect the fever is causing her to be quite lethargic and unwilling to eat. When a dog is deteriorating such as this it is an indication that she needs to be seen on emergency today, if that is possible for evaluation to see if she needs some intravenous fluid therapy. IV fluids can really aid in a fever and allow us to get the antibiotic into her.
At home you are probably doing all that you can, but the frustration is that she is so ill she will not eat anything, and therefore we cannot get her medications into her. If you are unable to have her seen then all you can do is your best to tempt her to eat and then try to actually give her pills rather than hide them in food (but please do not get hurt doing this).
