Maddi Burchell joins Veterinary Thermal Imaging for Kent
Veterinary Thermal Imaging (VTI) is delighted to announce that Maddi Burchell has joined the team, and will be based in the county of Kent.
Maddi breeds and trains gundogs with her husband, and is also involved in the equestrian industry, having an impressive list of related qualifications.
“As a trainer and breeder of gundogs, I know how much strain can be put on working dogs, especially at the height of the season,” says Maddi. “Thermal imaging is a great tool for checking those dogs over for any injuries sustained in the field. I love this technology because of its ability to pick up on areas of interest up to three weeks before clinical signs are shown, allowing the dog to be treated or rested. In breeding dogs, the imaging allows me to keep an eye on any back or joint pain that can be associated with giving birth or covering with male dogs.”
VTI offers a non-invasive and fully mobile thermal imaging service that can be used as a diagnostic tool, to monitor the efficacy of a treatment, for management and more. The state of the art infra red cameras used map heat patterns across an animal’s body, showing areas of interest in the form of hot spots and cold spots. A detailed report is produced and sent to the animal’s vet as well as any professional involved in the animal’s care.
“We’re thrilled to have Maddi join the team,” says Helen Morrell, MD of VTI. “She brings a wealth of canine and equine knowledge to the company, which works perfectly with what VTI has to offer. Understanding the needs of working dogs and performance horses, as well as pets, is essential, as is a great attitude and in-depth knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics, all of which Maddi has.”
VTI is a nationwide, all species, thermal imaging service. It’s affordable (with scans starting from just £40 plus travel for dogs) and takes place at the dog’s home or wherever requested. There’s no need to sedate the animal or transport it and the scan is entirely non-invasive. To find out more, see www.veterinary-thermal-imaging.com, or call 0844 544 3314.
