[b]Question: How do I take my Dog's Temperature? [/b]

Answer:

A dog's normal body temperature varies between 38 and 39 degrees Celsius (100 -102 degrees Fahrenheit).

To take a dog's temperature,
[list][*] Grease a snub nosed thermometer with vegetable oil.[*] Lift the dog's tail and insert the thermometer slowly about 2.5 cm or 1 inch deep.[*] Hold it in for 30-45 seconds.[*] Take it out slowly, wipe it clean and read the dog's temperature. [/list]

Hi,

It's also good to make sure you take the dogs temperature in a quiet calm environment.
