If you were to see a digital thermal image of your cat or dog, you might want to put it on a wall. It’s an eye-catching, multi-colored, infrared picture—of the inflammation and circulation throughout your pet’s body.

This image is also a powerful visual tool for helping veterinarians diagnose injury and illness and is now available at De Valle Pet Hospital! Digital thermal imaging—also known as thermography or Digatherm—doesn’t depict temperature but instead shows a visual picture of inflammation or lack of circulation, eliminating guesswork.

Digatherm is also non-invasive, non-destructive and inexpensive—just $20 per scan. Most importantly, this tool can help make laser therapy more efficient and effective for conditions such as:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Lameness
  • Malignancies
  • Fractures
  • Neurological issues
  • Vascular Dysfunction
  • Infections

If you’d like to know more about Digatherm and how it might help your pet, get in touch with us at (925) 443-6000.
