Dr. Barbara :

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?

Dr. Barbara :

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?
