What is the normal temperature for a dog that is nursing puppies.



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!!
