Vet Thermometer, 5"
A glass, heavy-duty mercury vet thermometer with ring top for string and plastic carrying case.
- Type: Thermometer
These still have mercury, so they're accurate, and no air bubbles to disrupt the reading. The temps go high enough for birds, and I keep some in the house and in the feed shed.
I bought a few of these and cannot read them to save my life. Impossible to see. Temp bead is silver and it has no contrast to read. Waste.
As a nurse, I don’t trust ear probe thermometers that aren’t checked periodically, as they are in hospitals. For home, I always keep a glass thermometer around. The only place to get them now is vet supply companies, such as Jeffers.
Use this as a double check on the digital.. When we have someone who is sick I always turn to a glass thermometer.. This is great and easy to read
