Question
Dear Shelley

Can we check and measure the Body Temperature in Pets viz dog, cat, Horse etc with a thermometer?.

Similar to Human Body Temperature exceeding 104 Fahrenheit which could be fatal, What will be the maximum Temperature which if exceeds could be fatal for pets?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hi Prashant

Thank you for writing to me.  Yes, you can check the temperature in animals (all have different normal readings however).  Each one gets taken differently.  All can have temperatures that are fatal, just as in humans.

Sincerely,
Shelley Davis
