Rectal thermometry is widely used in veterinary medicine and is considered to be the most accurate. It is a painless procedure, accomplished by inserting the tip of a thermometer, lubricated to eliminate friction and aid in insertion past the anal sphincter, to a depth of 2-5cm depending on the size of dog. The thermometer tip must then be left in place until a reading is measured, usually, 1 minute.
