Thermal imaging is an adjunctive test which contributes to the process of differential diagnosis, and is not independently diagnostic of pathology.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE​​

Baseline

Optimize your equine's athletic performance with a Full body Baseline

Comprehensive Physiological evaluation


When a suspected injury is localized more diagnostics



Treating an injury or disease in the earliest stages is far simpler and more economic than dealing with a chronic issue or advanced stage disease.

Clinical research has proven that Thermography can detect

  • tendon lesions two weeks before they are clinically evident
  • early identification of musculoskeletal
  • neurological injuries
  • non-specific and intermittent lameness.
  • early stages of pedal osteitis
  • navicular disease
  • hoof abcesses
  •  laminitis

Thermography can demostrate the distribution of blood flow related to gait and weight distribution, which is essential for monitoring the effectiveness and response to corrective shoeing.

. Early detection before there are clinical

symptoms is the key to successfully managing and treating these injuries. Identifying minor problems at an early stage will allow for immediate treatment, as well as changes to training programs and competition schedules.


LAMENESS ASSES​SMENT

Treating an injury or disease in the earliest stages is far simpler and more economic than dealing with a chronic issue or advanced stage disease.

Clinical research has proven that Thermography can detect

  • tendon lesions two weeks before they are clinically evident
  • early identification of musculoskeletal
  • and neurological injuries
  •  non-specific and intermittent lameness.
  • early stages of pedal osteitis
  • navicular disease
  • hoof abcesses & laminitis
 Thermography can demostrate the distribution of blood flow related to gait and weight distribution, which is essential for monitoring the effectiveness and response to corrective shoeing.


INJURY AND REHABILITATION  

Eliminate the guess work from observing your horse’s road to recovery and minimize the chance of a re-injury by returning to training before your horse has healed.

Thermography provides accurate information about the horse’s response to the prescribed treatment as well as the effects of the injury.

Routine screening throughout rehabilitation and recovery can monitor the healing process and determine when your horse can safely return to work or competition and give you peace of mind!


PRE- PURCHASE

Use a full body Thermographic scan as part of a pre-purchase exam will provide accurate information about every area of the horse.

  • subtle or sub-clinical inflammation
  •  infection
  • joint dysfunction
  •  musculoskeletal issues
  •  nerve injuries
  • a injection sites

SADD​LE FITTING & BACK ISSUES

The importance of a properly fitting saddle can not be overstated. The conformation of a horse’s back is in a state of constant flux.
