Dynamic Gait Analysis
During your pets first visit at Wizard of Paws Debbie will perform a dynamic gait analysis using a pressure triggered mat that asseses any irregularities, stride differences, or imbalances in your pets movement. The addition of objective measures in the evaluation of a gait in the patient are essential to accurate patient progress records, evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment techniques, communication and reporting to referring veterinarians, and owner education.
Digatherm Veterinary Thermal Imaging, Infrared Camera
Thermal imaging uses a highly sensitive infrared camera to measure, compile, and analyze the electromagnetic energy emitted from a patient. This software is able to convert temperature into images where these thermal emissions can be easily vizualized. The data collected directly correlates to changes in the circulatory, nervous and musculoskeletal systems providing us with a visual representation of where inflammation or disturbance is occuring in the body.
