Thermography

Equine thermography, thermal imaging, is a non-invasive monitoring tool that uses the very latest infrared imaging equipment and computer software to detect minute differences in the horse’s thermal and neural condition and allows us to identify trauma quickly and efficiently. Veterinary thermal imaging uses a camera to measure a patient’s body surface temperatures. This veterinary-specific software converts the temperatures into images that help evaluate physiology. Early identification of the location of an injury helps to prevent further trauma and helps the treating vet to make a decision on treatment needed, and to monitor recovery.
