Utilising state of the art technology as well as years of experience as a veterinary thermographer, we are pleased to offer thermal imaging for animals to our clients.
Thermal imaging utilises a camera which detects changes in heat within the animal when the image is taken. These changes, no matter how subtle, can give us an indication of an issue within the animal.
Some of the issues which can be highlighted by the use of thermal imaging include:
Joint and skeletal issues
Nerve Damage & injury
Ligament and Tendon Damage/Issues
Hoof Balance and foot problems
Back Problems and Back Pain
Thermal imaging in horses can also be really useful to check saddle fit.
Once we have taken the images of your animal, we will then spend time tuning the images to show the right amount of detail in order to see the potential problems if there are any. As part of the service, you will be provided with a comprehensive report of our findings which can be used to aid further diagnostics or treatment.
Many of our clients choose to have their animal imaged on a regular basis to keep on top of issues before they become a problem. Thermal imaging can highlight potential issues up to two weeks before clinical signs are shown.
Thermal Imaging is carried out at your home or yard. Contact us for more details
IMPORTANT: Only a qualified vet can diagnose a specific problem in an animal. Although our report will highlight potential issues, we will always recommend that clients seek the advice of a veterinary surgeon for a diagnosis.
ADVISORY NOTE: If you are looking for a thermographer, you should always ensure that they will provide you with a full report and are capable of tuning images. There are individuals offering thermal imaging services with sub-standard equipment which is not capable of having the images tuned and who also lack the knowledge or ability to provide a proper report of their findings. Always use a thermographer who can provide these services otherwise you will be wasting your money.
