"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."

Note detail on the horse image and the various areas of hot and cold associated with the animal's head and neck regions.
The images on this page are just a few examples of various animal subjects. They have been taken with the Teletherm infrared imaging system which operates in the optimum 8-12 micron range of the infrared spectrum. It is also a radiometric device which means it shows the temperature values at any location on the image.
Evaluate the suspensory ligament.
Evaluate muscle tears.
Taking pictures with an infrared camera to evaluate a painful condition on a horse is quite dramatic and extremely helpful to the veterinary physician or horse trainer.

There has been greater utilization with large animals in the private clinical setting than with small ones.
Laboratory animals such as rats, rabbits, or monkeys have been used to understand certain disease processes or the effects of pharmaceutical products and therapies.
