|Fever of Unknown Origin in a kitten

Vet Care and Advice
Took my kitten to the vet this morning and that's what they diagnosed her with. She had a fever of 104. They gave me a bottle of antibiotics (clavamox, I belive) and told me to give it until the bottle was all gone, twice a day. He told me to also give her a cool bath to help break her fever, which I just did.
I was wondering if there's anything else I can do to make her comfortable? I know she can't have any human pain reliever/fever reducers. How often should I do the baths? Once a day until she's better?
She's napping the biggest part of the day, but also gets up to play and eat and her lungs and heart sounded good. They didn't do blood work because he said it was extremely unlikely that she had feline leukemia or FIV since she is a strictly indoors kitty and we've had her about a month. She's just hot with a fever.
Also, how long does it generally take for the antibiotics to start kicking in good? How long will she have the fever do you think?
