Here is a link to the famous Merck Vet Manual. 
Merck Vet Manual
The normal temperature for dogs and cats ranges between 100 to 102.5F. It is possible for the owner to take a pet's temperature, depending upon the disposition of the pet. Have someone assist you by holding the back end of the pet. Use a rectal thermometer; an oral thermometer should never be used to get a rectal temperature. First shake the thermometer thoroughly until the column of mercury is about 96. Lubricate the thermometer with petroleum jelly or mineral oil. Grasp the pet's tail and lift it. With a gentle, twisting motion insert the thermometer until half its length is in the rectum. Retain your grip on the thermometer and tail for at least three minutes. Remove the thermometer and read the mercury level. If the pet's temperature is above 103F (which is considered to be a fever) or below 100F consult your veterinarian.
