The camera is about $8k and the training is around $1500.
Sounds like it'd be a very lucrative business and I'm sure you could earn that money back quickly!

I think it sounds like a great idea!

I would, however, check with someone about the legalities of everything so you don't get hit with something about practicing medicine? (perhaps even have a waiver or something for people to sign)

Yes, I likely would.

I get most of the bodywork done on my dogs (chiro, massage) done at trials. Primarily because it tends to be cheaper there, and saves me time and gas money for making a trip to get it done.

I just can't legally diagnose. I can say "there's a spot with increased temperature here" but I can't say "this area with increased temperature is caused by a sprained tendon."

Veterinarians are the only ones that can legally diagnose. Anyone can take pictures.

I absolutely would. If something like this was offered at that price at a trial near me, even though I don't trial, I would go to the trial just to have it done.
