Marsden’s latest veterinary scale is perfect for weighing small pets - with 10g graduations it gives a highly accurate account of your pet’s weight.

The new V-24 is the latest in a long line of accurate veterinary weighing equipment - one of the lightest veterinary scales in our range. Here is all you need to know about our new addition.
Puppy weight can be the difference between good health and poor health of your pet. Excessive pet weight can be a sign of diabetes, heart and lung diseases, skin conditions and different types of cancer.

Pet care is even more important during the summer months, as the hot weather could increase your pet’s weight and contribute to pet obesity.

A pet’s weight can be the first and sometimes the only indicator of health problems - and vets need accurate weighing scales to precisely analyse whether a pet is a healthy weight.
Problems can arise if the pet becomes too heavy, or weighs too little due to insufficient nutrients.
