Q: What features should I look for in an animal weighing scale?
A: Animal weighing scales come in various shapes, sizes and weight capacities and therefore our recommended advice would be to consider your needs in regards to weight capacity, resolution and possible range of animals you wish to weigh. If you are a pet owner looking to buy pet scales in order to monitor the weight of just one species of pet, then you would need to ensure:
- The scale has ample weight capacity above that of your pet.
- The size of the weighing pan is suitable for your pet.
- The overall resolution of the scale is appropriate (for example, tiny insects will require scales with exceptionally high resolution that work in milligram increments (0.1g-0.001g) whilst a dog would require larger scales that can weigh in grams or kilograms.
If you are a veterinary practice, kennel, pet breeder or groomer, it can be beneficial to have display hold or dynamic features that can take the weight of erratic pets through impressions on the weighing pan.
