Monitor Equine Vital Signs Easily
Heavy duty veterinarian thermometer. I prefer these thermometers over the digital versions. They are longer so the reading is more accurate. There is a ring at the top to which you would tie a string for easy attachment to the tail with a clip. It comes with a case.
Purchase several and have a spare on hand.
Students of my online Stable Management course or in the online course Health and Disease Management will find this thermometer very useful.
NORMAL EQUINE TEMPERATURE
• Foals, yearlings, and stallions: 101 - 102 degrees F.
• Average adult horse: 99 to 101 degrees F.
* Temperature can be a degree higher in the afternoon, after meals or while in a stressful environment.
