The dog’s temperature is higher than that of humans, it is between 37.5 ° C and 39.5 ° C when the animal is healthy, so we feel them warmer than we are. But it does not mean that the owner should not be aware.

As with humans, the dog temperature it also varies according to age and environment. Puppies and elderly dogs may have a lower temperature than normal and need to be heated more often, it is a natural condition of the body due to the greater fragility that these pets have.
