Whether you are buying, selling or just looking
for a routine infrared scan of your horse,
EquineIR™ can prove invaluable to your
finances and the horse’s health.
Before Equine Thermography, veterinarians could only
locate a problem with observation or palpation but with
equine thermography, an abnormality can show tissue
that’s stressed before the affected tissue
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.
Why perform an Infrared Scan?

*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.

the saddle can show when pressure points are unevenly
distributed, therefore causing discomfort to the horse
