Info on the Photizo Light therapy device

The information is taken from the Photizo website. The device is used to treat humans too and is obviously therefore a safe way to speed up healing in animals as well.

Light therapy offers a non-invasive alternative modality for rapid wound healing and provides a holistic treatment approach to many conditions. Light therapy improves circulation in affected areas thereby ensuring faster healing in wounds, traumatic injuries, and recovery post-operatively. Light therapy improves patient comfort and improves wound care, ensures less scar tissue production, post-operative complications, swelling and inflammation in treated areas. Light therapy, by improving circulation and assisting in cell repair, can lessen necrotic tissue formation in and around wounds and ensures better success with skin grafts and other surgical techniques. Owners of pets can be offered an extra service when treating wounds, conditions and in post-operative care. Better wound healing and faster recovery improves client satisfaction ensuring better success in your clinical practice.
