Hi XXXXXXX
The result shows ketones positive - that means she was not taking feeds well at that time and was in so called starvation ketosis.If she is back to normal and on regular feeds now, you need not worry!
At the time of fever you should give lot of fluids and juices in future also.

Secondly urine protein positive in traces - can happen in any infection.

When she is OK from viral fever after 2-3 weeks,please repeat the urine routine test.

God bless
All the best
