Brief Answer: Can continue same Detailed Answer: Hi Do not worry . As she is fine and active , you can continue with econorm . She might be passing more urine maybe due to the weather or retained fluid in the body getting out as the fever and treatment is over . In any case there is no need for further treatment in her present condition. Arun
