Dogs are mammals, just as we are and, despite our obvious differences, we also have many similarities. One of these similarities is an immune system that uses some similar defense mechanisms, such as the ability to increase our body temperature when it is necessary to do so.

Many pathogens struggle to survive in environments that are too warm, so raising the temperature can kill them, or at least slow them down. If your dog does feel hot to the touch then consider a rectal thermometer to check their temperature. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, take them to a nearby vet.
