Equine Testimonials For Equine Infrared Light Therapy and Equine Magnetic Blanket:
“With our horses competing at international levels, we care very much about preparing for high performance and then supporting them with proper recovery after competition. Recognizing and fulfilling these needs is key for superior results. Near Infrared Therapy System is one of my prime treatment and therapy tools. It has been so valuable this year for our thoroughbred ‘Out To Sea’, who recently received the Fitness award presented by the
veterinarians at an international eventing competition. Holistic treatment and conditioning is a solid foundation for our continued success.”
“During a recent dressage competition, one of my top thoroughbreds developed sudden back pain in combination with what looked like a saddle fit or saddle pad reaction. Skeptical that much could be done to assist quickly, I applied an Infrared Therapy treatment on the horse’s sore back for 15 minutes. Within 45 minutes, my horse’s back was much less sensitive. After a second treatment the next morning, he was fully recovered. Because the system is portable, flexible and easily applied to a specific target area, it will now be one of my prime treatment and conditioning therapy tools.” Pam Fisher, International Sport Horse Trainer, Ruffian Stables / Basalt, Colorado
Veterinarian Horse Cases Treated with Infrared Therapy
Mare with slow healing laceration of dorsal surface left hind cannon between hock and fetlock, under veterinary care. Injury occurred in the pasture. Swelling has complicated healing process.
Management: 24 hour support bandage with 24 hour alternating topical antibiotic and steroid.
Trial of light therapy treatment:
For 7 consecutive days, Infrared Light Therapy was applied for 20 minutes immediately after bandage and topicals removed. To secure infrared pad on leg, it was wrapped with polo.
Thermal Imaging:The LH leg treatment area was imaged with a thermal camera every day before & after treatment to determine if there was a pattern of increased circulation . Below is a representative example.
The red pattern at the treatment site in the “after image” indicates increased local circulation immediately after a 20 minute treatment with Infrared Light Therapy.
Digital photos of wound:
A digital photo was taken on Day 2 and again on Day 7.
Accelerated healing from the bottom of wound up and hair re-growth was noted by owner at the end of 7-day period.
Heat, or discomfort, in the foot should be an immediate call for Infrared Light Therapy. Infrared Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are placed around the coronary band to stimulate hoof growth and treat important acupuncture points. LEDs are also strategically placed to help reduce inflammation from bruising, increase blood circulation to counter the effects of laminitis and accelerate the healing of abscesses, as well as the navicular bursa. Treatments have shown to have profound positive effects for a variety of disorders in the region of the foot and beyond.

Infrared Light Therapy is powerful and have helped many of my horses. It is a great treatment. Any barn with multiple horses should not be without it. Jack Van Berg, Hall of Fame Thoroughbred Race Trainer
1. Two year Quarter horse filly with non-healing laceration on the left carpus. The carpus was swollen, sticking out 2 ½ inches beyond normal and a non-healing flesh wound 3 ½ ‘’ in diameter for a four month duration. I applied an Infrared Light Therapy treatment to the lesion four days in a row. After the first application I could see the new skin growth. By the fifth day the flesh wound was only 1 ½ ‘’ in diameter. In addition, the swelling had reduced. Two weeks later the flesh wound was less than a ½ ‘’ in diameter – Four applications
2. Twenty-year old Quarter horse mare with a fractured medial splint bone and soft tissue damage from the carpus distal to two inches above the fetlock. She had caught the leg in a wooden fence. The skin was not broken. She had grade 3 lameness. We applied Infrared Light Therapy on her leg three times, one week apart. The problem was 3 ½ weeks old when I first saw it. There had been no improvement since the incident. After the first application, the swelling was reduced and the lameness was a grade 2. At the time of the second application, she had a grade 1 lameness with reduced swelling. By the third application, the mare was normal with very little swelling. She was returned to regular riding activity. The response after the first treatment was remarkable in light of the previous 3 ½ weeks with no improvement. The mare is doing fine. Glen Wilkinson, DVM
Equine Magnetic Blanket Plus Infrared Light Therapy
I just wanted to pass along that Infrared Light Therapy and PHT Magnetic Blanket have enabled my horse to feel her best. She used to be extremely body sore, nervous in her stall, off feed, nervous to saddle, and would prance going to the starting gate. We even at times had to put her in a flipping rig in the starting gate.
Now she is quiet in her stall, quiet to saddle, eats good, and walks/jogs quietly to the gate. We have even removed the flipping rig in the starting gate. She is running at her peak and looks and feels great.
I can’t say enough about the Infrared Light Therapy and the Blanket. I can see a definite improvement with this mare.
I can even tell a big difference in myself. After a long day at the track the Infrared Light Therapy takes care of my aches and pains.

Elephant Veterinarian Elephant Case Treated with Infrared Therapy
Recently, one of the elephants at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore sustained a soft tissue injury in one of her ankles after taking a misstep.
The Zoo Elephant Team and Veterinary staff investigated several ways to help heal the ankle as quickly and decisively as possible. As part of the treatment regimen, we decided to use an infrared sports therapy device from in order to speed healing of the tissue at the injury. Using this device in combination with changes in the elephant’s exercise practices resulted in a significant improvement of the ankle. The elephant is still undergoing regular treatments with the infrared device, and we have seen the injury decrease from affecting her 50% of the time when she was walking to now being only barely noticeable about 10% of the time. As we continue her treatment schedule, we anticipate a full recovery and have been extremely pleased with both the effectiveness of the device and the ease of applying it. Michael McClure
