Watch video: Taking your dog's temperature

Sophie Flux , from Animal Aiders, recognises that taking a dog's temperature is not something many dog owners feel comfortable doing but assures us that it is a useful way of measuring a dog's health.

She shows us what equipment we will need and demonstrates how to carry out the procedure.

Temperatures can vary from dog to dog, so Sophie recommends taking your dog's temperature while they are healthy to establish what is right for them.
