Ongoing fever!

So about a month ago my whole barn moved into a new barn with healthy horses owned by one owner. My mare stressed out with the move and was also in heat. Anyways she came down with a mild fever and didnt really want to eat. Had the vet out and he said she had a little bug from the stress. She got better, then 2 weeks later got another fever, reaching 104.7. She was lethargic, dull eyes, her joints are cracking (shes a healthy 12 year old) and she was picky at her food. Had the vet out and ran a lyme and a flu, both negative, so started her on SMZs for 10 days. The next day after starting, her fever coincidentally went away. 1 week later it returned. She's very blah, creaky, achy, and slow at eating. She was started on oxytetracycline IV and We're running a tick panel and a cbc and chem panel. Anyone had anything like it?

Peritonitis? Repro infection? Deep abscess?

Need to do more diagnostics is my thought.
