Flu?

Question:

I am terribly concerned for my 1 1/2 year old female JRT. Since Sunday (it is now Tuesday afternoon) she has been vomitting, diahrrea, no appetite, and only olicking ice cubes. We took her to the vet yesterday and she had a 103 fever. Whenever we even try to giver her her meds she throws them right up. We wakw up in the morning to vomit all over the house. Today she does seem a bit spunkier but she still will not eat her prescription food nor drink any water. The sounds like the typical flu. I know that dogs cannot get human diseases so is there such a thing as a "doggie flu"? If so, how long would this last? The vet stated that since they do not know what is wrong with her they can only treat the symptoms. Now I am beginning to worry about dehydration. Hep!
Thank You,
Shannon
