Professional medical instrument manufacturer Riester has been making diagnostic devices for the human medical community since 1948. The company has created a diagnostic tool for examination of the eyes, ears, nose, and oral cavity of veterinary patients called the Riester Vet de Luxe I Veterinary Diagnostic Set w/3.5V XL Illumination with Rechargeable Battery For Larger Animals. This diagnostic set is specially designed for more sizable veterinary patients such as large dogs but could also be used with certain wildlife or zoo patients as well as some smaller farm animals.
The Riester Vet de Luxe diagnostic set comes with a single tube handle and several attachments that facilitate examination of the patient's eyes, ears, nose, and oral cavity. Five different sizes of metal specula can be interchanged and fitted to the otoscope attachment for ear examinations based on the size of the patient. Three of the scapula are solid and two are slotted, allowing for a more customized examination. The lengths and widths of the scapula are tailored to the wider and deeper ear canals that animals often have, maxing out at 92mm in length and 9.4mm in width for the largest speculum. The smallest speculum is 53mm long and 5mm wide which could accommodate the ear canals of some smaller dogs and possibly cats. This diagnostic set is unique in that it comes with a nasal speculum and tongue depressor holder, two attributes not commonly found in typical veterinary ophthalmoscope/otoscope combination diagnostic tool sets.
The Riester Vet de Luxe I Veterinary Diagnostic Set w/3.5V XL Illumination with Rechargeable Battery For Larger Animals contains a rechargeable ri-accu battery in the handle that charges by plugging the handle directly into the wall. The entire set is conveniently contained in a single, heavy-duty plastic case. The set comes with a two-year manufacturer's warranty. Reister hit the mark...a quality must have veterinary set at a great price.
