    Question Taking a temperature ...

    Ok as some of you know I am babysitting some extra bulldogs this week, well one of them I have to take her temperature twice a day because she is very pregnant and ready to deliver I believe on Monday so I'm keeping track of her temperature ....

    so my question is what type of lube do you use on the thermometer? Poor little girl just cried this morning when I tried to insert the thermometer so I added a little Vaseline to help it slide easier ... but wasn't sure if that is ok to use .... please help!

    @Sherry - thank you, sweet little Latte will be picked up on Sunday and that was all I had here at the house, and couldn't find anything in the doggie kit that was left with me, so I will just use a little bit of that for the next couple days or the next 4 or 5 temp readings.

    When I take my guys to the vet, she always checks their temperatures, and she uses Vaseline, so it must be safe.
