Can a dog be infected with a TBD without having any fever?

Customer Question

Can a dog be infected with a TBD without having any fever? My dog has had a mysterious GI illness for 6 weeks. Numerous blood CBC panels have been done, ultrasounds by an internist to rule out cancer, but he isn't getting better. He has had diarrhea and anorexia for weeks. He had low grade pancreatitis but they don't think that is really the issue.

I am sorry to hear about Ernie. Is he really 17? I am impressed, but I am sorry to hear he is not well.

I am also terrible with abbreviations. What is a TBD?

Is he eating, and drinking? Any vomiting?
