Temporal Artery Thermometer

Good day Neighbors!

Well, Our AC is fixed and I am so glad!  We are not supposed to see any major change in the temperature soon.  And speaking of temperatures, I have a really handy product to have around the home.  It is an Exergen, Temporal Artery Thermometer.  Just what every mom needs for taking a child's temperature.

Remember how hard it is to have a fussy child, who does not feel well, and you need to take their temperature.  No mother wants to cause her sick child more distress by making them hold a thermometer, under their arm, under their tongue, or to take their temperature rectally.  So, here I have the perfect solution!  The Temporal Artery Thermometer, takes an accurate reading of your child's temperature in just two seconds simply by running it across the temporal artery that runs across the forehead.  Quick, simple, and no discomfort.  A red LED light and a quiet beep will let you know that you received a correct temperature reading.This makes it possible to take a sleeping child's temperature without waking them.

Why a Temporal Scan rather than an ear thermometer:
A major reason ear thermometers are considered inaccurate by medical professionals is because the positioning of the probe in the ear canal is inconsistent, thus creating inconsistent readings and frequently missing fevers. The temporal artery thermometer scans the forehead area for the temporal artery and it is almost impossible to miss the artery during a scan. Also, the person whose temperature is being taken does not like something inserted in their ear, making good positioning even more difficult. The gentle scan across the forehead is comfortable and not objectionable. The TemporalScanner has been proven more accurate than ear thermometers by a Harvard Medical School study.*

I am sure some of my neighbors will be interested in a Temporal Artery Thermometer.  You should be able to find one at a local retailer like; Walmart, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc.  And one neighbor will receive one in this giveaway!

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post. I did receive one Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer.  All quotes in red are from the company website or email.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
