Use of Thermal Imaging In Veterinary Care

Posted by Victor Saunders on Apr 17, 2016 1:11:17 PM

Animals are unable to explain to us when they hurt or ache. Many times this can result in late diagnostics when they are injured, which in some cases can even lead to fatal results for the animal.

Using a thermal imaging camera to check animals has many advantages. The latest thermal technology has made these devices a standard tool for veterinary diagnostics.

Animals emit infared heat.  Due to the communication barrier between animals and humans, thermal device for veterinary use has become an increasingly popular application. 



Using a Thermal imaging camera allows the detection of  many types of diagnostics and injuries, which might otherwise go unnoticed until permanant damage was done. In addition to eliminating lots of guesswork by providing precise heat map of affected areas, thermal devices are efficient tools which can help us to learn more about the animals health.

Veterinary bills can be steep for performance horses, and owners can benefit greatly from thermal imaging. They scan the horses on a regular basis to ensure the horse is in top condition and isn't suffering from any hidden injuries.  Did you know that a thermal device can detect stress and trauma in horses 2-3 weeks before an injury is detected?  This early warning can save the horse lots of pain and suffering while saving its owners aggravation and costly vet bills.
