His temp was 102.4 I think, elevated a bit...


That's really not elevated at all and considered an acceptable temp. That poor ear can not feel good at all! I don't envy you having to clean it but I'm glad you're there to help Dudley out!

Yeah I figured it wasn't too bad (101-102 is "normal"?) but he was VERY sick then with the green gunk at that point. It's all gone now and he's looking SO much better!

the range we look for at work is : 99.5 -37.5 Celcius - low normal- to 101.3 -38.5 Celcius - typical normal
even 38.9 102.02 isn't too bad,
102.2 (39.0) we'd start to think of as elevated or feverish, but no raging fever until about 39.5-39.9 and above, 41.0 is HOT!

p.s. its now taken me about 15 mins dealing with the spell checker and errors it was having to post this ! :evil:

How high do you pass as "normal" for an extremely stressed animal (i.e panting cat)?

I guess it depends on the situation? If the cat was overheated, we'd re-take the temp. and see if it dropped.
I've seen temps as high as 40 ish not due to fever, we've overheated a few that were cold and then got TOO warm...
I guess I'm thinking in a "normal" acting or quiet/lethargic animal of these temps, environmental factors(stress, exertion etc) not affecting...
does that make sense :|
I've honestly never seen a cat continue to pant for any length of time at work, they are always put on O2 if they come in panting or open mouth breathing, and then it goes away...
