Why Consider Infrared Thermal Imaging for Your Horse? (Article courtesy of EquineIR.com website)
Since animals cannot speak, it has been difficult for caretakers to truly identify hidden or masked conditions. Now with infrared thermal imaging, many of these physiological and anatomical issues are exposed at a much earlier stage. Early detection = early prevention.

Anatomical imaging such as x-ray, lacks specificity and fails in the ability to see soft tissue conditions.
Physiological imaging, such as infrared imaging, has the ability to not only see tissue conditions but can also recognize areas that are indicative to anatomical issues.
Enter: Infrared Thermal Imaging
Non-Invasive and completely safe (No harmful radiation)
About 15-20 minutes for a full horse scan
Scans are done at your location, you won’t have to trailer

Reports and infrared scans should be reviewed and interpreted by a Veterinarian specialized in Equine Thermography. Other benefits to consider: costs are reasonable, even with veterinary interpretation. Often, discounts are available for multiple horses at the same location
