What is the normal temperature for a dog that is nursing puppies.
Age: 6; Female; Breed: Border Collie
Her temp was up the other day to 103 but is back down now to 101.7, I can't remember what the normal temp is.
The normal temp for a dog is between 101 - 102.5. Nursing bitches may run a bit warmer due to being in an enclosed area with padding and little warm bodies, but anything over about 102.7 or 102.8 should be investigated by a vet...just to be safe.
I hope this helps!!
