Yes: No urination is a sign of dehydration. Fever, vomiting and diarrhea are all ways to lose fluids, and if she's not drinking well, then she could become dehydrated very easily. Look to see how she's doing overall. If she's not making tears, and is lethargic, then you may want to think about calling 911 instead, but otherwise get her to the ed now.
