FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Equine Thermography, otherwise known as equine thermal imaging, is a non-invasive method of measuring heat emissions from the body. Using thermal imaging cameras on horses (or warm-blooded animals) allows for the discovery of abnormal thermal patterns, the identification of potential error sources and the assessment of training performance.

Once thermal images have been captured, trained equine thermal imaging technicians (thermographers) will be able to accurately measure heat emissions from a horse’s body, allowing them to identify problem areas such as:

  • Nerve damage
  • Bone injury
  • Undiagnosed lameness
  • Muscle damage
  • Soft-tissue damage
  • Tendon stress
  • Incorrect saddle fit

Thermal imaging technicians are also able to monitor injury, recovery and equine performance in general. This makes equine thermography an invaluable tool for trainers, practicing veterinarians and physiotherapists.
