Normal temp for a dog?
I am just wondering what the normal temp is for a dog? I only have a ear termomater. Is that okay to use for now? I think she may have a little bit of a fever. Her nose feels a little warm and wet. Also hubby gave her a bath yesterday and used the wrong shampoo, he just used my normal kind because he's a dummy and didn't think to ask. Well he got some in her eyes and they seem a little irritated now, so I have been putting some polysporin eye drops in for her and they seem to be getting a little bit better. Anything else I could use? I don't want to sound like a bad owner but I'd hate to make this another trip to the vet if I can do something from home.

Normal temp range - 100.5 - 102.5
I don't know how well an ear thermometer works for animals. I take temps rectually
