Has your horse, cow or pet ever seemed “off,” and you wonder why? “If only they could talk.” right? Physical examination and x-rays are helpful ways to assess an animal’s condition, but Thermal Imaging looks beyond the surface to pick up differences in circulation (heat patterns) due to inflammation, scarring or infection.
Carolyn Kemps from Thermal Imaging Canada uses a FLIR camera to collect thermal images of her clients’ animals, and then prepares a comprehensive analysis on her computer. In cases where the imaging does not find any abnormalities, the report serves as a baseline in case issues occur in the future. When the images show abnormalities, they can be used by the owner and/or their health care professional to determine a treatment or recovery plan.
Carolyn has had a busy spring thus far, travelling throughout Saskatchewan doing baseline evaluations on horses & rodeo bulls before competitive season gets underway to ensure there are no underlying issues. Jumpers, Dressage, Barrel Horses, Wagon Horses, young prospects who’ve had prior issues, a Rottweiler & a couple pens of rodeo bulls have all been assessed & detailed reports sent to owners for follow up with professional of their choice or for clinical diagnosis by veterinarian.
