Questions & Answers

What is the accuracy of this thermometer when used on a dog? e.g., what is the variation? Accuracy is + or - how many degrees off?
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2019
Accuracy is tested by using a device with a known temperature. The manufacturer uses a reference body that allows them to calibrate within ASTM standards of plus or minus 0.2 degree Celsius. It will read the ear temperature of plus or minus 0.2 degree Celsius (or 0.3 degree Fahrenheit). The thermometer tip must be pointed at the horizontal canal in the dog or cats ear. The horizontal canal is the heat pocket that needs to be measured. This is accomplished by pulling the outside ear and pushing the tip so it’s snug in the ear while pointing towards the opposite jaw. If the tip is just put slightly into the ear, the temperature will read low because the vertical canal is cooled by ambient air.

What size battery does this thermometer use? Is it easy to change the battery?
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2019
This thermometer utilizes a coin battery with a lifetime of approximately 5 years. It must to be sent to the manufacturer to have the battery changed.

Don't waste your time

I read the reviews and I still took my chances. The batteries came dead, so it does not work....and you can not replace them. Now I have to figure out how to return the item. What a waste of my time!

Inconsistent Readings

I get different reads every time I use this device. Not reliable.

Fast and Accurate

Checked it against a rectal thermometer and it's accurate. Very easy to operate.

Pretty good

It works ok but you cannot get the previous reading as it says you can. At least when I try to pull it up, it shows "Lo" and will not give me another number for comparison. Also it is a little harder to get the covers on the tip without ripping them. Be very gentle.

Fast and Accurate Temp Reading

My older dog had been running fevers for several months off and on. I didn't want to give him vet recommended prescription unless I was sure about the level of his fever. This thermometer got him through a rough time. Very accurate only a couple of seconds and it reads the temperature. So much better than a rector one.

Doesn't Work.

I was so excited to order a non-rectal thermometer to keep tabs on my dogs and cat, but this product doesn't work. No matter how many times I tried or different angles I attempted, it kept giving me error messages.

Waste of money

The battery died in under a month and it cannot be replaced unless you send it to the manufacturer. Who thought this was a good idea?

very disappointed

very disappointed, I can't even get the unit to register the same temperature on the same animal checking just minutes apart. and I mean off by several degrees. I tried checking 3 times and going for an average but that doesn't help when I know I have a sick kitten I need a dependable unit, this one sure isn't. Also when I first received the unit it already had a cover sleeve on the ear piece and the was a temperature recorded in the Memory almost like it had been "tested before". I was expecting a unit that would work so I wouldn't have to keep using rectal thermometers especially on the kittens

It;s great !!!

I bought this for my cat because it is extremely difficult to take their temps. My cat allowed me to use this with no upset to him. Terrific product.

Arrived Not Working

Sadly, when I opened the box to use it for the first time, the screen was blank and no matter how many times/ how long I held the button, it was non responsive. I was told by the company that they're recalibrated before they're shipped out so they were surprised it arrived to me nonfunctioning. Needless to say, I'm supposed to be getting a new one direct from the company, I just don't know when it will arrive; it's already been a couple weeks. My review is based on the potential of the next one actually working.
