Results suggest eye surface temperature has potential to predict changes in creatine kinase activity and could be useful indicator fof physical fitness in ranch horses.

Equine Veterinary Journal - Department of Large Animal Surgery and Anaesthesiology, Ghent University, Belgium
"Thermography is a valuable and rapid clinical tool to monitor the development of cast sores."

J. Dairy Sci
"A thermal camera mounted in a milking or feeding parlor could detect temperature changes associated with clinical mastitis or other diseases in a dairy herd."

"... changes in circulation may be noted even before lesions can be confirmed with ultrasound." 
Clark Equine Clinic, Albion, Idaho

"It can be concluded that surface temperature changes assessed using infrared thermography, in particular of the hen's comb, are sensitive to husbandry procedures such as handling and represent a potentially useful method for assessing stress-induced hyperthermia in chickens."
School of Veterinary Sciences, University of Bristol, Langford UK.

Thermal imaging is an objective assessment of the situation where communication between animal and doctor may be limited, or not properly understood through other methods.

For Large and Small Animals      
  • Rapid and Quick Assessments
  • Non-invasive
  • Provides Valuable Information
  • Important for Animal Care
  • Establish baselines for outcome measures
  • Monitor efficacy of latest treatments
  • Stress evaluations
  • Important for sports and rehabilitation
  • Efficient for studying livestock

Thermodynamic effects of commercially available ice boots studied.  Thermal images were taken pre-exercise, post-ice boot, and every 2 minutes after until the temperature difference of the control vs. treatment leg became zero.

There has been greater utilization with large animals in the private clinical setting than with small ones.

Zoo animals can also be helped by making sure there are no soft tissue injuries, that otherwise might go undetected.
Laboratory animals such as pigs, rats, rabbits, or monkeys have been used to understand certain disease processes or the effects of pharmaceutical products and therapies.

An objective thermal perspective is provided.
