What is a veterinary scale?

A veterinary scale is a weighing scale designed for weighing animals, and are most commonly used in veterinary surgeries. They can range from small animal scales for weighing hamsters, guinea pigs and mice, to weighing scales for cats and large dogs.

Larger scales in the Marsden vet scales range can also be used as livestock scales.

 

Why should animals be weighed?

A pet’s weight can be the first and sometimes the only indicator of health problems. According to specialists ‘pet obesity is the number one issue facing vets’. Obese animals can encounter breathing problems, as their lungs are forced to work harder to move their weight. In cats, hepatic lipidosis is a liver disease associated with obesity.

 

How do I know which veterinary scale to choose?

Each of the veterinary scales in the Marsden range is different, and which one you choose will depend on what you need from your scale.

For smaller pets choose scales with lower capacities, as these will give you more precise graduations. For example, the V-22 is a small pet scale perfect for cats and small dogs, and provides readings as precise as to the nearest 5g.

The Marsden V-100 is our most popular vet scale, perfect for weighing cats and dogs. For larger pets, go for larger animal scales with a bigger base and higher capacity - for example the V-200, with its large platform, and indicator with bracket for mounting to the wall.
