PYREXIA of unknown origin is a blanket term used to describe a clinical presentation in which continuous or relapsing fever is a predominant feature but the underlying cause has yet to be determined. In such cases, an initial short course of antibiotics (and possibly even secondary therapy with ‘stronger’ antibiotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and a baseline work-up may still fail to elucidate a likely diagnosis. This article describes the possible causes of pyrexia in dogs, and outlines a logical clinical approach to help pinpoint its origin.
