My dog never sat still for a rectal thermometer. This solves that problem. I like that the readings are color coded: Green for normal, yellow to let you know to monitor the dog's temperature, and red means call the vet. I didn't realize that a dog's temperature can be too low, and this will alert you to temperatures that are dangerously low, as well.
It is working great and my dogs really appreciate that I don't need to shove things where the sun don't shine to get an idea of what their temp is.
This is a great product for pets
Excellent product - easy to use, good results, excelsexpectations
For example when I get a reading from my dogs external stomach area when feverish, there is about a 3 degree difference from her rectal temperature. That goes for other areas recommended.
