Fussing When Taking Temperature


Recommended Posts

I've noticed something odd about Capri when we go to the vet. They can take her temperature anally and she completely ignores it. Or they can do it in her ear and she cringes and acts like their ripping her ear off. That's totally backward from the way I feel about thermometers! :lol I don't think they're being rough with her or doing anything wrong. So why is she so fussy about a thermometer in her ear?

If you can, next time watch as they're doing it. I've seen vets and techs both hold the ear a little too tight and it hurts them.
