Equine thermography is extremely helpful if you are working in animal athletic training situations. Equine infrared imaging can detect musculo-skeletal injuries several weeks before they are visually detectable. Later, equine infrared imaging can help the Veterinarian follow the horse's response to treatment.
Why schedule a Thermal examination?
It is quick and affordable.
The procedure is simple, non-invasive and does not require any sedation.
The images are immediately available for review.
The thermal images may indicate the onset of inflammatory reaction in joints, ligaments and tendons from two to six weeks prior to clinical symptoms (lameness, swelling etc).
Thermography is utilized in many situations eg. to locate lameness, in shoeing and trimming assessment, for saddle-fitting evaluation, to reveal signs of arthritis, to evaluate tendon/ligament or other soft tissue damage/healing status.
