Thermal Imaging Speeds Up The Evaluation Process To Better Understand Any Lameness.

This horse’s issue was sole pressure. The sensitive structures under the sole cannot take the full weight of the horse.  The thermal shows exactly where the pressure is.  Shoes were removed, sole pressure relieved and shoes re-applied.  This horse was then sound with minimal physical evaluation.

Photo taken while evaluating a horse freshly shod by the owner/shoer with a veterinarian present. Ben confirmed the problem to their surprise. The owner had chosen a cheaper shoe than normally used and was not familiar with sole pressure.
