Thermography is another diagnostic technique which can be used to highlight problems in numerous areas of the body, legs and hooves. It can therefore be used to pinpoint specific areas for x-ray and further investigation.
We all slide our hands down our horses legs and over their bodies to check for injuries or heat. If your horse seems a bit lame the first thing you check is the heat of the area. Thermography is 40 times more sensitive than your hand!
Cameras are now small and hand held which means they can be used anywhere. They provide high quality images which can then be viewed on a computer.
