Before Thermography, Veterinarians could only locate problems using traditional methods such as observation and palpation. Now, using advanced EquineIR™ thermography, abnormalities present stressed tissues even before damage occurs.

This methodology has been developed and refined over the past twenty-five years and has been proven to be an effective imaging technique useful for veterinarians in the diagnosing of conditions.

Uses of equine thermography include: pre-purchase; hoof balancing; inflammation; general diagnostics & preventive medicine; pre-event imaging; saddle fit; muscle/nerve injury.
