Can you be sure your pet is not in pain? Digital infrared thermal imaging provides a non-invasive physiological body scan that evaluates your pet’s circulation, neurological and musculoskeletal function.
The Digatherm technology measures the radiated energy from the tissue. The difference in radiated energy is measured by temperature and colour associated with change.
The high-resolution camera and software can detect changes of less than 0.020C- that’s 20 times more sensitive than your fingers at detecting small changes in heat and 10 times more sensitive to detect cold.
Various colour palates help us to visualise the changes as heat and cold is conducted to the surface of the body. Hotter areas depict inflammation whilst cooler areas show a lack of circulation.
Digital thermal imaging is not a diagnosis, but a step to help us to target our treatments, identify areas for further assessment or review our therapy.

Using Digatherm gives us a better understanding of your pet’s condition and allows us to objectively review progress.
The different palates of colour allow us to visualise the changes. This doggy shows some asymmetry in the nose area. The Right side of the picture (left side of dog) shows more circulation and heat from this area below the eye. This could be associated with inflammation due to infection, abscess, tumour growth and needs further investigation.
Chloe, a super sweet 2-year-old Rottweiler who enjoyed long hikes with her owners and playing with other dogs, came to Paws in Motion with intermittent right front leg lameness and a head bob. Her owners were very keen to get Chloe back to full function and out hiking again.
Adaptil® reassures dogs during new experiences and fearful situations often associated with causing stress in our canine companions. Female dogs secrete pheromones that comfort and reassure their nursing puppies. These "appeasement" pheromones have the same calming effect on adult dogs.
Massage therapy, heat therapy, acu-laser and electromagnetic field therapy are very therapeutic, especially for our geriatric pets that need that extra care as they age gracefully.
