  • Adhesive tape

  • Antiseptic wipes, lotion, powder or spray

  • Non-latex disposable gloves

  • Petroleum jelly (to lubricate the thermometer)

  • Rectal thermometer (your pet's temperature should not rise above 103°F or fall below 100°F)

  • Scissors (with blunt ends)

  • Sterile non-stick gauze pads for bandages
