How do I take my cat's temperature?

You often have to be very observant to see that a cat or dog is not feeling well. Lack of appetite, attentional withdrawal, tremors are signs that can alert you. To reassure yourself or see if you need to consult your veterinarian, you can take your pet's temperature yourself. Know, to have a benchmark, that the normal temperature oscillates around 38.5°C.

To have a reliable result, it is preferable to use an electronic thermometer with a flexible tip. This has the advantage of not being able to break or hurt the animal. Coat the tip with a little petroleum jelly and gently insert it into your cat's or dog's anus. Lift the tail to facilitate introduction, not too high for the comfort of your companion. Wait for the ringing indicating that the temperature has been detected and remove it gently.

Don't take your dog's or cat's temperature too frequently as variations are normal. One taken in the morning and one in the evening is sufficient; Reassure your animal, never act brutally or force it. Don't forget to congratulate and reward him because he is unable to understand why he has to live such an unnatural experience...
