Questions & Answers

How accurate is the thermometer? Does it read in Farenheit?
Answer by ChewyApr 07, 2020
This rectal thermometer has an accuracy within plus or minus 0.2° Fahrenheit; temperature range from 90° to 108° Fahrenheit.

Can you replace the battery if it was to die?
Answer by ChewyJan 19, 2020
For battery replacement, The Pet-Temp must be returned to Advanced Monitors Corporation. The life span of the battery is over 20,000 temperatures, with a shelf life of up to 10 years. If the Pet-Temp were used 20 times a day, 6 days per week, the battery would last approximately 4 years. Although, more extensive thermometer usage may somewhat shorten the life of the battery.

How do you change the reading from Celsius to Fahrenheit?
Answer by ChewyMay 07, 2020
If you want to switch from °F to °C, first press the power button to power on, wait until the “L”symbol appears, then keep pressing the power button until the symbol °F flashes for 5 times. The °F symbol will then change to °C. If you want to change °C to °F, repeat the procedure.

is this product suitable for adult dogs?
Answer by ChewyMar 23, 2020
This thermometer is suitable for pets of all ages.

This never went above 99 degrees and that only happened once but usually settled at 97/98. I compared to 3 other thermometers which read my dogs temp at 100-101. This is overpriced and NOT reliable. Very disappointed.

Not worth it

This was not worth the $12. Ours didn’t go over 98 for our healthy cats and took way over 20 seconds to work.

Reliable just a little slow

The thermometer is definitely accurate but it takes more like 20 seconds to get the reading so I’d recommend a second person holding the pet in place.

Worthless - Do not purchase

This thermometer does not take an accurate temperature. From the first use, I could never get it to go over 95.7, no matter how long I let it stay in my poor pups rump. At least he took it like a champ. I'm out $$, however.

Accurate easy to use

Great for the price. Accurate, easy to use! Bought for my pup as she has ear issues. Sometime she can get a fever with them. Save on vet bills by taking it myself. I would definitely recommend.
