How to Take Your Pet’s Temperature (EAR):
Instructions for Ear Temperatures:
The normal Ear temperature in dogs is between 100.0 degrees and 103.0 degrees Fahrenheit (37.8 degrees and 39.4 degrees Celsius).
The ear thermometer works by measuring infrared heat waves that come from the ear drum area. The ear drum is considered to be a good indicator of body temperature as it measures brain blood temperature.
It is important to place the thermometer deep into the horizontal ear canal to obtain an accurate reading.
An ear thermometer such as the Pet-Temp® designed for cats and dogs works best due to a longer arm that allows for the probe to be placed deeper into the ear canal.
The first few times you use it, take both an ear and rectal temperature and compare. The results should be very close if you are using the proper ear technique.
