HOW TO TAKE A DOG'S TEMPERATURE

I do so many things at home to keep my dog healthy. I choose her dog food and treats carefully, reading ingredients labels incessantly and being cautious about where they are made. I add healthy vegetables, fruit, eggs, fish and fish oil to her food. I give her heartworm, flea and tick medication. We get lots of exercise. We visit the Veterinarian regularly and keep up with required vaccinations.  I make sure she's brushed, ears are clean, and her nails are in good shape.  But I recently realized that I have never taken my dog's temperature at home. In fact, I had no idea how to take a dog's temperature myself!
