WellVu Veterinary Thermal Imaging – a thermal imaging technology company formerly Digatherm – announced it has received recognition as a Fear Free Preferred Product. This makes WellVu Veterinary Thermal Imaging the first and currently only company within this category to achieve this recognition.

“WellVu is committed to providing an easier imaging experience, for veterinarians, pets, and their owners. Our thermal imaging technology makes it easy to instantly and non-invasively perform full-body imaging of patients, providing unique clinical insights without the hassle. Fear Free was a natural fit and we are thrilled to be recognized as a Preferred Product,” said Josh Robertson, vice president of WellVu Veterinary Thermal Imaging, in an organizational release.1

According to the release,1 WellVu Veterinary Thermal Imaging technology is used in veterinary clinics to proactive screen patients for any underlying conditions, detect abnormalities, and objectively monitor the progress of treatment. Abnormalities and asymmetry are clearer to veterinary professionals when using thermal imaging to help teams determine diagnostic steps and provide a visual for pet owners to better understand any findings.

WellVu Veterinary Thermal Imaging's images also provide objective monitoring of treatment progress before as well as throughout the patient’s treatment. The imaging can also show owners positive progress and help them understand when additional treatment may be needed.

"We are excited to welcome WellVu Thermal Imaging as the newest Fear Free Preferred Product," said Randy Valpy, CEO of Fear Free.1 "Their innovative thermal imaging technology aligns seamlessly with our mission to reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in pets, providing veterinarians with crucial tools for a Fear Free experience. This collaboration is a significant step towards enhancing the wellbeing of pets and their owners."

The Fear Free Preferred Product Program was created for veterinary professionals to have access to services and products that follow Fear Free protocols, procedures, and recommendations. Fear Free Preferred Products are evaluated and reviewed on an ongoing basis as a way to ensure that those selected continuously meet the needs of Fear Free professionals.2 A list of Fear Free Preferred Products is available on the Fear Free website.
