Certified Thermographer No. 7406
Authorized Technician

A qualitative thermographic scan by a certified thermographer can detect health issues associated with lameness, injuries and conditions that will affect the performance and health of your horse, two-six weeks in advance.

“At the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, where there were millions of dollars worth of equipment available to the equestrian teams, the most-requested diagnostic tool was thermography. It was fast. It was portable and it was non-invasive. It could detect injury sites before they became lameness problems, and could guide practitioners to specific anatomic areas for study using other diagnostic techniques. And it was extremely accurate when used by an experienced practitioner.” - The Horse, Oct 2001.

So Why Haven't You Used
Infrared for the Wellness of Your Horses?

What is infrared thermal imaging?

Infrared thermal imaging is the art and science of detecting, displaying and documenting thermal patterns across the surface of the camera's target.  The highly sensitive FLIR T-400 camera, used by trained and certified thermograher Peter Bennett, detects infrared waves which are invisible to the un-aided/naked eye. The camera detects hot and cold skin surface temperatures and then converts them into visible colors.  This is the key component as the asymmetrical thermal patterns of the horse, which typically indicate health issues, can then be reviewed by our vet.  The report is then sent to your vet, farrier, etc.
Note:  a qualitative thermographic scan and report should only be conducted by a certified thermographer and authorized technician.  The report should only interpreted by a veterinarian.
