Veterinary scales is something essential for the functioning of the shelter.
The dogs’ health state needs to be constantly monitored. This is why they need to be weighed when they enter the shelter and then regularly to be able to discover if any is loosing weight and maybe getting sick.
If sick, the dogs need to be weighed to calculate the exact dosage of medications or injections.
People that adopt want to know the dogs’ size.
In all: the shelter cannot function without proper scales.
