Why should animals be weighed?
The weight of a pet can be the first and sometimes the only indicator of a pet’s health. ‘Pet obesity is the number one issue facing vets’, according to veterinary specialists. Obese animals can encounter breathing problems, due to their lungs being forced to work harder to move the weight.

Choose the V-250 Large Veterinary Scale if you need a high capacity weighing scale for weighing medium sized to large pets. The scale has a 250kg capacity so is also suitable for weighing small farm animals.
The V-250 has an optional rubber mat, which can be laid over the stainless steel surface to make it easier for animals to step onto. The platform is low profile at only 50mm high, making it easier for animals to get onto the scale.

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.
