Oral Tumour (Epulis) in a Dog | Canine Thermography
An uninsured nine year old Labrador bitch, referred by Oxfordshire based veterinary hospital presented with an ulcerating epulis in the left commisure of mouth - MRI costs were prohibitive.
Kissing Spine in a Horse | Kissing Spine Detection
A 5 year old mare presented with extreme rearing vice under saddle. Query whether due to over exuberance and attitude or physiological condition. Referred by Lambourn-based practice.
Subchondral Bone Cyst in a Horse | Equine Thermography
Nine month old filly referred by owner for routine thermal imaging ahead of in-hand championships. Sub-clinical lameness, exhibited as a loss of showy action when turned-out, with query as to whether this was due to bruising from a lodged stone or kick above knee the previous week.
Joint Inflammation in a Horse | Equine Thermography
A 6 year old BSJA Newcomers gelding presented with reduced performance and uncharacteristic refusing. Referred by a Midlands based veterinary hospital for full anatomical scan.
A 13 year old Novice eventer presented with reduced performance XC and was referred by a Welsh equine hospital for full anatomical scan.
Our Thermal Imaging Camera is more than 40 times more sensitive than the human hand in detecting temperature differentials - These early stages were imperceptible.
Dermatomes in a Horse | Equine Thermography
Areas of unusual colour banding on the legs, called dermatomes, were present on this six year old Hafflinger’s legs. She was failing to track-up properly. These indicated that one or more of the branches of her spinal cord were being constricted, with the pinched nerve sending out a signal to the part of the body it controls to vasoconstrict. This was resolved through chiropractic treatment. You can read more about Horse Nerve Damage and Injury on our website.
Muscular Wasting (Atrophy) in Dogs and Horses
When the familiarity of a uniform hair coat colour is replaced by the palette of the thermal imaging camera, it’s far easier to see areas of Muscle Wastage or Muscular Atrophy, which are also denoted by cooler temperature readings.
On the left, a 3 year old Jack Russlell Terrier suffering from a locking left patella, referred by West Midlands Veterinary Surgery for objective monitoring of his physiotherapy through bi-annual scans.
Subclinical Tendon Lesion in a Horse | Equine Thermography
Using Thermal Imaging for a preventative approach and performance enhancement, routine tendon scanning of a showjumper in Oxfordshire highlighted the beginnings of a tendon lesion before clinical signs were evident (note: horses mask pain for approximately three weeks before exhibiting external signs through innate behavioural response to the threat of predation1).
Horse Saddle Fitting and Hoof Balance | Equine Thermography
Narrow, bridging and wide saddles are all routinely identified in a full Thermal Imaging session.
The same theory applies for hoof balance, where more pressure is exerted through the hoof wall, greater temperature readings are observed. The colour bands should be even across the hoof. You can learn more about this on our Hoof Balance page and see how we can work in conjunction with your Farrier.
Intermittent Lameness of a Dog | Canine Thermography
Uninsured 9 year old cocker spaniel, with intermittent lameness. Owner felt that that problem was in the left hind. General x-rays of the limb were inconclusive, MRI scanning was cost prohibitive.
