equine infrared thermography and its practical and diagnostic uses for vets, farriers, owners, trainers working with horses

Professional Training Courses for discerning individuals who intend to provide a valuable service using veterinary infrared thermography (IRT) for the promotion of veterinary care for animals. Without excellent Veterinary Infrared Training your service will be detrimental rather than a blessing to clients. Knowledge of anatomy and physiology as well as camera operation, software use, preparation of the patient, the environment and good horsemanship name but a few of the skills necessary for veterinary infrared training. When well executed you are able to provide the quality service that clients deserve. We are in the business of providing professional veterinary infrared training in order for the client to be able to produce a quality Infrared Thermal Imaging examination of equines and other animals.
