Children & Fever

Having a little one who’s sick can be very stressful. It’s important to know how to care for them, when to call a doctor and how to administer medicine. Here are some tips for caring for a child with a cough and cold.

The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (think Sick Kids but in Ottawa) has created a helpful guide for parents. Be sure to check out the link below for information on fevers – what it is, how to treat and when to be worried.

As always, if you have concerns about your little one and a fever please call the office (online booking is only for routine appointments) so you can be triaged and seen in a timely manner.
