Th ermographic imaging has been studied and used widely in human and equine medicine, but published data from small animal medicine is still lacking. Th e primary aim of this study was to obtain basic knowledge of the method of thermographic imaging and to map possible areas of its use in companion animals. To determine the requirements for an optimal thermal camera, three cameras with diff erent resolutions (80 x 80 pixels, 180 x 180 pixels and 320 x 240 pixels) were tested. A total of six… 
Thermal and Circulatory Changes in Diverse Body Regions in Dogs and Cats Evaluated by Infrared Thermography
TLDR
In conclusion, IRT is a non-invasive technique that can be used to diagnose inflammatory and neoplastic conditions early, however, additional research is required to establish the sensitivity and specificity of these thermal windows and validate their clinical use in dogs and cats.
Infrared thermal imaging associated with pain in laboratory animals.
TLDR
The aim of the present review is to compile and analyze studies of infrared thermographic changes associated with pain in laboratory research involving animals.

Local tumour response to neoadjuvant therapy with 2‐aminoethyl dihydrogen phosphate in dogs with soft tissue sarcoma
TLDR
2‐AEH2F had no cytoreductive effects when used at doses and intervals described in this study, however, significant drop in skin temperatures recorded in tumoural areas suggest induction of physiological changes.

Clinical Applications and Factors Involved in Validating Thermal Windows Used in Infrared Thermography in Cattle and River Buffalo to Assess Health and Productivity
TLDR
Recent findings on four thermal windows are discussed to elucidate the factors that modulate and intervene in validating thermal windows and interpreting the information they provide, as it relates to the clinical usefulness of IRT for cattle and the river buffalo.

Evaluation of thermographic imaging of the limbs of healthy dogs.
TLDR
Thermography can be a viable, noninvasive imaging modality that provides consistent images with reproducible thermal patterns in ROIs examined in healthy dogs and although the coat had a predictable influence to decrease the mean temperature, thermal patterns remained fairly consistent after the coat was clipped.
Reliability and repeatability of thermographic examination and the normal thermographic image of the thoracolumbar region in the horse.
TLDR
Clinicians can obtain relevant thermographic images without the need for prior equilibration and can compare cases with thoracolumbar pathology to a normal topographic thermographic map and thermographic patterns are reproducible over periods up to 7 days.
APPLICATIONS OF THERMOGRAPHY IN VETERINARY MEDICINE
TLDR
Investigation of thermographic studies of horses indicated that while the hair of the mane and tail does offer concealment, the hair on the remainder of the body does not significantly interfere with the detection of thermal variations.
Computerized infrared thermographic imaging and pulpal blood flow: Part 1. A protocol for thermal imaging of human teeth.
TLDR
There was no significant difference inGingival or incisal temperatures between pairs of contralateral maxillary lateral incisors and a consistent temperature gradient existed from gingival to incisal areas of healthy maxillaryateral incisor teeth.
Thermography: a technique for subclinical diagnosis of osteoarthritis.
TLDR
It was believed that the four horses that failed to make minimum track times (for racing) suffered discomfort in their tarsi sufficient to impair performance, and these early changes were conspicuous as abnormal thermographic patterns typical of inflammation.

Technical note: Applicability of infrared thermography as a non invasive measurements of stress in rabbit
TLDR
Both temperature and the change in corticosterone level show that the stress reaction induced by tonic immobility test is stronger than the one due to the other stressors applied to rabbits.
