Veterinary Thermal Imaging Case Studies

Veterinary Thermal Imaging graphically maps the skin surface temperature, and provides an objective view of the very subjective feeling of pain. Physiological changes occur in the animal in response to any underlying anatomical disruption, and can occur whilst tissues are just under a state of stress before major injury occurs. In normal animals there is a symmetrical skin surface temperature pattern which is consistent and reproducible for any individual animal.

The following case studies demonstrate the precise detail obtained, and sensitivity of the Thermal Imaging camera in use in the field, and are reproduced with the kind permission of our clients.

In all instances the animals exhibited very few outward signs that there was anything wrong. The riders noticed a lack of forward movement or a change in action, or the temperament of the animal subtly changed. They just seemed a bit lacklustre.
