Abstract The objective of this study was to evaluate infrared thermography as a noninvasive screening tool for detection of pododermatitis during the developing and active stages of disease in three species of penguins: king penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus), macaroni penguin (Eudyptes chrysolophus), and rockhopper penguin (Eudyptes chrysocome). In total, 67 penguins were examined every 3 mo over a 15-mo period. At each exam, bumblefoot lesions were characterized and measured, and a timed… Expand
Infrared Thermography as a Diagnostic Tool for Pododermatitis in Captive Greater Flamingos (Phoenicopterus roseus)
TLDR
The results suggest that infrared thermography may not be a practical diagnostic tool for pododermatitis in flamingos due to wide temperature variations between and within normal feet and a great degree of overlap of temperatures between normal and abnormal feet. Expand
EVALUATION OF THE INTER- AND INTRAINDIVIDUAL AGREEMENT OF A PODODERMATITIS SCORING MODEL IN GREATER FLAMINGOS (PHOENICOPTERUS ROSEUS)
TLDR
The current scoring method for flamingo pododermatitis does not supply a reliable method for tracking foot health based on images alone across timepoints, except for fissures, and further analysis of the scoring system being used during a physical examination is warranted. Expand
DIAGNOSTIC APPLICATIONS OF INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY IN CAPTIVE BRAZILIAN CANIDS AND FELIDS
TLDR
It is concluded that thermography is an important diagnostic tool for canids and felids, being an examination carried out at a distance, without stress, non-invasive and painless, prioritizing animal welfare. Expand
Pilot Study: Correlation of the Surface Skin Temperature Between the Leg and Foot Using Thermographic Imaging in Captive Hawks
TLDR
Temperatures of the tarsometatarsal region of perching hawks measured by infrared thermography may be useful to screen and monitor for the presence of thermal changes associated with inflammation of the metatarsal pad in captive hawk species. Expand
Reporting of thermography parameters in biology: a systematic review of thermal imaging literature
TLDR
It is found that in primary biological thermography papers, which make some kind of quantitative temperature measurement, 48% fail to report values used for emissivity (an object's capacity to emit thermal radiation relative to a black body radiator), which is the minimum level of reporting that should take place. Expand
Thermal Image Scanning for the Early Detection of Fever Induced by Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Virus Infection in Chickens and Ducks and Its Application in Farms
TLDR
It is suggested that thermal imaging of chickens and ducks is a promising tool to screen any potential HPAI-infected flock in order to expedite HPAi diagnosis. Expand
Non-Invasive data capturing and identification methods of Antarctic Mega Fauna
ca. 200 words): Climate change combined with an ever-increasing human footprint is strongly impacting the polar ecosystem. It has become imperative to collect more frequent and accurate data and atExpand
The dynamics of spawning acts by a semelparous fish and its associated energetic costs
TLDR
The results indicate that female shad exhausted their energetic stock faster than their egg stock and water warming will increase the rate of energy expenditure, which might increase the risk that shad die with a large stock of unspent eggs. Expand

TLDR
The medical use of the smartphone is still in its infancy in veterinary medicine but can bring several solutions to the exotic pet practitioner and improve point-of-care evaluation. Expand

Use of thermography to screen for subclinical bumblefoot in poultry.
TLDR
Thermography may provide a useful tool for screening avian populations for signs of bumblefoot, early in the course of the disease, which will improve recovery percentages and bird well-being. Expand
An evaluation of the application of infrared thermal imaging to the tele-diagnosis of sarcoptic mange in the Spanish ibex (Capra pyrenaica).
TLDR
The most sensitive and specific technique for the tele-diagnosis of sarcoptic mange in the Spanish ibex is OT, as it permits diagnosis over greater distances than IR, which sensitivity is impaired at distances >100m. Expand

TLDR
Thermography detects heat before it is perceptible during routine physical examination; therefore, it is useful for early detection of laminitis, stress fractures, and tendinitis and is complementary to other imaging techniques such as ultrasonography and scintigraphy. Expand
Evaluation of potential variables contributing to the development and duration of plantar lesions in a population of aquarium-maintained African penguins (Spheniscus demersus).
TLDR
Recommendations for minimizing bumblefoot in African penguins include training penguins for monthly foot examinations for early detection of plantar lesions predisposing for the disease, encouraging swimming activity, and replacing smooth surfaces on exhibit with surfaces providing variable degrees of pressure and texture on the feet.

TLDR
Thermography is the pictorial representation of skin temperature that detects heat before it is perceptible during routine physical examination and thus is useful for the early detection of laminitis, stress fractures, and tendinitis. Expand
Thermography in the diagnosis of inflammatory processes in the horse.
TLDR
Thermography was effective in quantitative and qualitative evaluation of anti-inflammatory compounds in the treatment of chemically induced inflammation. Expand
Detection of hoof lesions using digital infrared thermography in dairy cows.
TLDR
Results demonstrate an increase in surface temperature of the lame limb when a hoof has a lesion, and this was achieved by measuring changes in coronary band temperature before and after claw trimming in response to visual detection of abnormalities of the hooves. Expand
Use of Infrared Thermography to Detect Thermographic Changes in Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus) Experimentally Infected with Foot-and-Mouth Disease
TLDR
Investigating the use of IRT to detect possible heat changes associated with sites of infection with FMDV in experimentally infected mule deer indicates that IRT may be a rapid, remote, and noninvasive method to screen for suspect animals in order to test further for F MDV infection during an FMD outbreak. Expand
An infrared, thermographic study of surface temperature in three ratites: ostrich, emu and double-wattled cassowary
TLDR
The ostrich was able to regulate surface temperature more precisely than the other species, probably due to a larger body size, and its large wings are useful for thermoregulation by increasing convective heat loss. Expand
Potential of infra-red thermography for the detection of summer seasonal recurrent dermatitis (sweet itch) in horses
TLDR
The feasibility of using infra-red thermography for early and out of season detection of summer seasonal recurrent dermatitis (sweet itch) was tested on 13 sensitive and six insensitive horses in Israel and unaffected sensitive horses could be differentiated from insensitive mares by the warm areas detected in the affected zones.
