That temp is bad. Get some cold rags and put them over her head and ears. Did she get any probiotics when she came home?

temp is very high...get her on antibiotics and banamine right away...tylan 200 is a good OTC choice or Nuflor froma vet....
b complex for stress and electrolytes for hydration...you can take a cool rag under her arm pit area inner legs and head to help bringher fever down..

Homemade Electrolytes
A half gallon of hot water
2-6 Tablespoons of Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses ( or what you have or honey)
1-2 Tablespoons of Either Sea Salt, Epsom Salt, Baking Soda or Table Salt.
1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar


Mix well and drench or let them drink it.

Tylan 200 is 1 cc per 25# every 12 hours sub Q Nuflor is 3 cc per 100# once a day..Sub Q Banamine is to help reduce the fever and pain 1 cc per 100# SUb Q

if she will not drink the electrolytes..drench her...or tub her...dehydration will beingher down faster than the fever...

She may have already had something going on. Coccidia can come on quick with a drastic change. If she hadn't had a CDT shot, overeating disease could be it. You would really have to have a necropsy done to find out.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
