What is the 'normal' range of temperature for a Malt. I know that the high end of normal is 102 - does anyone know what the low end is?


Thank you!

It is my understanding the normal body temperature is 99.5 to 102.5 but I'm sure the experts here will correct me if I'm wrong on this.

I was taught that it varies for every dog, not by breed. In Giorgio, his normal temp is 101.5, as is Cybill's (Toy Poodle). I don't know what his low is, but, surely any drop by 2 degrees would be significant in an animal with a normally high body temperature.

Shame on me, I haven't measured Cherrish's normal resting temperature yet, and, I should.

I was also taught to take their temp. when they are normal, record it somewhere you can find it, so that we can know when they are in fact running a fever or have a sub-normal temperature.

I just looked that up the other day. Normal is 101-102.5, but as low as 100 still falls in the normal range.
