6Measure Your Pet’s Temperature:
You need to measure your pet’s temperature to make sure your pet does not suffer from fever or hypothermia. To do so, you’ll need a special thermometer meant to for pets, or you can use a regular digital rectal thermometer, just don’t force it inside your pet’s ear.
During a regular home checkup, you want to stick the probe inside your pet’s ear and watch the temperature. On average, the typical temperature in cats ranges between 100° F _ 102.5 °F (37.7 °C – 39.1° C). For dogs, the average temperature stands at 101° F (38° C), but if your dog’s temperature is one or two degrees lower or higher than this, it’s totally fine.
