Veterinary Thermal Digital Imaging

Digital thermal imaging is your opportunity to get a full understanding of your pet’s circulatory, nervous and musculoskeletal systems.

What is Digatherm?

Digatherm is a state-of-the-art thermographic imaging system that utilizes a highly sensitive infrared camera to capture and measure temperature patterns emitted by your pet. The temperatures are then converted into images where thermal emissions can be visualized and analyzed by a veterinarian. Digatherm allows pet owners to get a comprehensive look at their pet’s health, recovery progress and more.

How Thermal Imaging Can Help Your Pet

  1. Early disease detection: Temperature irregularities may indicate a variety of health issues, including inflammation, infection and circulatory problems. By identifying causes for concern early, a veterinarian can intervene and provide timely treatment before potential issues become critical.
  2. Pain management: Pets often mask their pain, making it a challenge for veterinarians to accurately gauge their discomfort. Because higher temperatures can be associated with pain or inflammation, infrared imaging reveals where your pet may be hurting.
  3. Orthopedic evaluations: In cases of musculoskeletal injuries or orthopedic conditions, Thermal imaging can be used to assess the extent of damage and monitor your pet’s healing. Veterinarians utilizing this technology are empowered to make informed decisions regarding surgical interventions, rehabilitation or ongoing care.
  4. Monitoring chronic conditions: Digital imaging allows veterinarians to monitor the progression of chronic conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. If any changes are detected, a veterinarian can adjust treatment plans as needed.
