A complete canine thermography session takes about half an hour. We’ll start by taking a history of your animal and collecting some basic details. Then your dog will imaged from all angles and a complete picture built up. You will be asked to hold and position your dog for the images, and if any dog thermal Imaging - canine thermal imaging - thermographyequipment is also being checked you’ll be asked to work them for a short time whilst wearing it too. If you have concerns about a lameness that develops after work, we’ll also image your dog after a short work-out.

The Thermal Imaging Camera is about the size of a camcorder, and is practically silent in operation, making only a small ‘clunking’ sound as it calibrates and focuses. This doesn’t normally worry or disturb animals, but if it does, your thermographer will work quietly and reassuringly, and continue to capture the images.

Once the images have been captured they are digitally enhanced on a computer, thoroughly examined and compiled into a Thermography Report. This process takes a further hour and is conducted off site. Any areas which require further investigation will be highlighted, together with any artefacts in the image which could be misread as a false positive.

Your Thermography Report will be mailed to you in your preferred format – digitally on a CDROM, which also contains all the images as separate files, or printed out in hard copy. At the same time we’ll also email an electronic copy to your Veterinary Surgeon.
