Mango momma taking over the blog briefly to share a review of my recently purchased dog ear thermometer. I had previously used the classic rectal thermometer which has plenty of drawbacks as I'm sure you're aware. Not the least of which is that with Mango if you don't maintain a tight grip, you could lose the darn thing (almost happened for sure).
Being able to take your dog's temperature is very important. Often if a dog is displaying off behavior you might not think it is time to go to the vet, but if you can detect a fever then you will know that your pet is really sick.
I poked around on Amazon and finally selected the Pet Temp ear thermometer
It worked great! Very easy to use and the dogs don't mind it at all. Of course they are both used to having their ears handled and cleaned. One note is that this does not seem suited to smallish dogs. The probe is a bit large.
I made a little demo movie so you can see how easy it is to use. The movie is kind of long, but Mango and Dexter are in it, so that should help with the entertainment value. Watch it below or click here.
