A relaunch of ‘Photizo to the Rescue‘ allows re-conditioned devices to be exclusively available to rescues across the UK whilst reducing Photizo’s impact on the environment.
The latest rescues to benefit are registered charities Broken Biscuits UK and Cuan Wildlife in Shropshire. Cuan takes in over 2,500 sick, injured or orphaned wild animals and birds annually.
When a swan came into Cuan’s care after flying into power-lines, Cuan’s vet, Barbara Jones (BVMed, VetMFHom, MRCVS) from the Oswestry based Oakwood practice, recommended using the Photizo Vetcare.
Cuan’s Wildlife General Manager, Anna Nicholls, explained:
“Unfortunately we get at least two cases a year involving a swan that’s flown into power lines. Damage from the electrocution often includes paralysis of the wings. The muscles ‘droop’ and the birds cannot fly. It is really horrific.
The power-lines burn the flesh and create nasty wounds that sometimes do not heal at all. Heartbreakingly, we can’t always save swans after this kind of trauma.
It was the first time we’d used Photizo, so I had no idea what to expect. We used Oakwood’s Vetcare unit three times weekly for three weeks. Amazingly, in the first week the healing was visible. Soon after, the swan was released back into the wild.”
Offering on-going rehabilitation to Shropshire’s wildlife, Cuan takes in around 900 hedgehogs a year.
The latest Hedgehog was suffering from a virus, very underweight and very sick. With Photizo’s help, the hedgehog was released back within 24 hours.
To promote sustainability and provide a supply of re-conditioned units for charity, Photizo has launched a ‘trade-in offer’ to its regular practitioners.
Ruth Milner, Director of Danetre Health Products, Photizo’s sole UK distributor, explained: “We’re giving animal practitioners that might need a new battery or repair an option to trade in their well-loved Photizo that’s over three years old for a £50 discount on a brand new device. We’re committed to helping reduce the impact on the environment. We recycle as much as we can and dispose of parts at end-of-life as ethically as possible. If you’re thinking of upgrading your ‘to go’ Photizo, we’d love to find it a forever home with an animal rescue as part of our relaunch of our ‘Photizo to the Rescue’ campaign for 2019.
