Photizo Light Therapy is a non-invasive complementary or alternative therapy tool for wound healing, musculoskeletal conditions and pain relief.


A Photizo Light Therapy device is a modern photobiomodulation device.  Photobiomodulation (PBM) harnesses the healing power of red and infrared light at specific wavelengths proven to be effective in accelerating natural healing of the body, reducing swelling and inflammation, stimulating the immune system and relieving pain.  Cells that are damaged following trauma can be rejuvenated by red and near-infrared light. See here for more information

Photizo is the result of years of research. It uniquely combines the latest advances in LED technology to offer a modern phototherapy device, which is safe and simple for anyone to use. Highly recommended by worldwide human and animal health professionals, Photizo Light Therapy brings an amazing, powerful and extremely safe therapy into the hands of home users and pet owners who do not need to undergo training in the science of photobiomodulation therapy.

Photizo Vetcare from the Photizo Home Care range, offers a complementary, non-invasive and effective treatment for numerous conditions and is ideal for use on companion pets, competition and working animals including horses and livestock.

The device is rechargeable and provides a one-touch, pre-programmed 31 second dose so anyone can administer effective daily treatment sessions and continue with a course of light therapy to optimise cell functioning throughout rehabilitation.  For treating long term chronic conditions, the number of treatment sessions is dependent on the severity of the condition.

Used by vets, vet nurses and other CAM practitioners

Photizo Vetcare is a convenient, versatile pocket-sized treatment tool used and recommended by vets, vet nurses and other animal health practitioners including physiotherapists which will help with the following:

  • To maintain and speed up the healing process between professional treatment sessions throughout rehabilitation
  • To be used long term to provide natural pain relief for your animal if they are suffering from a long term degenerative chronic condition
  • For proactive use such as helping with muscle recovery on performance and active working animals.  The effects can help to complement manual therapies like equine/canine massage

Using Photizo

You may wish to find a practitioner for your animal’s treatment.

If you choose to buy a machine for yourself

You cannot “overdose” on light therapy; however, it is very important that you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines as to quantity / length of use to avoid any potential side effects and to ensure you reap the benefits.

It is also wise to talk to your vet or animal health practitioner with regard to how Photizo treatment would best be incorporated into your animal’s healthcare plan.

Photizo Vetcare comes with  step by step instructions of how to use the device correctly for each type of condition and Tips & Tutorial on how to look after the device.

For treatment information and specific dose advice click here. However, Danetree Health Products advise us that whilst the user guide is informative and is great to start with, the guidance does err on the side of caution on dose application. Some take the guidance very literally and can then under-use the device. To help with additional understanding for pet owners, and to get the most from your handset, they are in the process of putting together a little course which will be a low cost Owners Tutorial that people can book. You might consider registering your interest for more information by emailing Danetree Health Products  and signing up for their newsletter.  This will ensure you receive the latest tips and tutorials so that you can get the best results for your animal.

Photizo ambassadors

Photizo has a growing list of animal ambassadors including rescue dog Kratu who, once he realised how good the therapy is, introduced Fabulous Finn……


Krautu, a rescue dog from Romania, is full of joy and fun despite his difficult start. He has a penchant for training and is an Assistance Dog to his Autistic owner, Tess, who’s had him since he was four months old (she also rescued his Mum and siblings). He loves agility and is famous for going the wrong way and running off with a pole at Crufts! He’s also a regular visitor to primary schools and is an ambassador for the All-party Parliamentary Dog Advisory Welfare Group (APDAWG). Kratu has regular Photizo sessions to keep him fit and to ease any aches and pains.

Many of you will have heard of the amazing story of the heroic German Shepherd Police Dog Finn. After Finn’s recovery from the almost fatal stabbing he suffered to protect his handler PC Dave Wardell, Dave has relentlessly campaigned for Finns Law.

Finn suffers with an extremely sore neck and arthritic legs which have been helped tremendously by Photizo Light Therapy alongside regular physiotherapy and hydrotherapy.
