This scale is particularly suited to the veterinary industry. With a capacity of 44 lb (20 kg) and readability of 1/2 oz (10g), the scale will accurately weigh infants or small animals. The scale has a “Hold” feature that will capture an unstable weight and keep it on the display for recording after the weight is taken off. The scale can operate on battery (single 9VDC) or AC (adapter included). The scale comes with a stainless steel weighing tray.
