Frequently Asked Questions


What is normal temperature for dogs and cats? Both dogs and cats have a normal temperature range between 99.5 and 102.5 °F

Why is a high temperature so bad for my pet? A high temperature is bad for our pets because a fever is an indication of an underlying health concern. It is always important to take your pet to the vet if their temperature is above normal.

What are factors impacting body temperature? Age, gender, neuter status, weight, breed, haircoat stress, excitability, exercise, weather, and pregnancy all impact your pet’s body temperature. Taking their temperature regularly to establish a baseline is good practice.

How can I prevent my pet from getting a fever? Preventing your pet from getting a fever depends on the root cause. If it’s a fever from an underlying illness, the condition itself needs to be addressed. If the fever is from heatstroke, practice safe exercise routines and keep your pet from being outside on hot days.

Where are the femoral and axillary arteries? The femoral artery is located on the inside of their upper thigh, where the leg meets the body. The axillary artery is the armpit of the front leg.

Why do I need a pet thermometer? Our pets can’t talk to us, so when they start showing signs that something is wrong, it’s often too late to intervene. The Mella Home allows pet parents to have a quantiative temperature reading to know when to take their pets to the vet.
