Thermal imaging is fear-free medicine – because it is as easy as snapping a picture. Scared or excited, painful or shy – every pet can benefit. By mapping out the slightest of temperature differences in a beautiful colour-coded picture, a thermal image provides a road map for our veterinarians, identifying areas to investigate and helping to localize disease often before its full onset. By utilizing thermal images, our doctors can gather more accurate clues to diagnose, treat and monitor patients proactively. Often pets are so stoic it can be challenging to pinpoint pain; other times, they are so nervous even the slightest touch can cause them to overreact. Thermal imaging allows us to have a non-biased view of the pet’s physiological status.
