Body surface temperature measurement is a tool that has been used for centuries to indicate the health problems. Along with the development of technology, infrared thermography, a more sophisticated means has been evolved into modern veterinary medical application.

Infrared thermography is based on analysis of skin surface temperatures as a reflection of normal or abnormal physiology using a high performance infrared camera. Temperature changes are always the foremost indicators of a simultaneous structural change. The camera generates images with thermal data in real time and in a fraction of a second, a large area of the body can be imaged and a complete diagnosis can be carried out. Hot spots always indicate inflammation or increased circulation, while cold spot is a reduction in blood usually due to swelling, thrombosis, or scar tissue.

With any veterinary thermography application, infrared cameras are used to show the possible syndrome, before any damage is done to the animal.
