Rectal temperatures are the only effective way to get a temperature in a dog. They are not painful. Thermometers are significantly smaller than stool even in tiny dogs.
Dogs will react to this some times simply by surprise and some times reacting to the owner's anxiety. Help your pet and veterinarian by trying not to make your dog anxious about temperature checks.
