Vet-IR’s long-term aim is to integrate Infrared Imaging into every day mainstream veterinary medicine, to see it successfully utilised and promoted as a beneficial, adjunctive imaging modality by veterinary surgeons, international zoo’s and educational establishments.
Vet-IR's screening services are non-invasive, low cost and 100% safe. The technology is mobile and provides a thorough examination of your horse's physiology.
Equine thermography has been recognised as a useful tool in the identification of musculoskeletal and neurological injuries, especially nonspecific and difficult to diagnose lameness. We may help to identify a range of conditions and therefore assist diagnosis.
Infrared imaging reports should be provided by a veterinary surgeon with thermologist training and experience. Infrared imaging is a test of function; it, therefore, requires specific knowledge in physiology and neurology.
All of your results are provided by our experienced veterinary surgeons trained in thermography interpretation, suggesting areas for further investigation for your Vet and paraprofessionals.
Thermography, like all other diagnostics, should always be interpreted by a trained veterinary surgeon. Please be aware of companies that do not provide results from vets as they may not be able to assist your investigation. We provide screening for lameness, pain and injury along with preventative detection and also a way to monitor recovery.
