In recent years, there has been a lot of talk about the benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or PRP therapy. This treatment has been used for everything from helping people recover from injuries to reducing wrinkles. And now, it’s being used to help our pets. PRP therapy is becoming a popular treatment for pets, as it can help with a variety of conditions. If you’re considering this therapy for your pet, read on to learn more about how it can help them.
Has your pet been suffering from Osteoarthritis, tendon injuries, or ligament damage and want something that may help them heal faster than thought possible? PRP therapy may be the answer. PRP therapy can possibly help decrease the pain, increase healing, and reduce inflammation. Many studies have shown that PRP Therapy can even expedite the healing process in pets. In some cases, dogs with mild and moderate arthritis have had up to a year of pain relief with just 1-2 PRP injections.
PRP therapy is a revolutionary new treatment that can significantly increase the speed of tissue healing in your pet. It uses your pet’s own blood to create a potent injection that will help their tissues heal at an expedited rate. Platelet Rich Plasma is the platelets that have been separated from other blood cells with flow cytometry. This process creates an increased concentration of these platelets in the plasma. This is beneficial because platelets are known for their ability to heal and clot blood.
This service can be performed at some veterinary clinics as an outpatient service. Because you will need at least 40mls of blood, your pet will mostly be sedated or under general anesthesia. The area in need of healing will then be shaved and prepped for injection after the blood sample is separated. Any extra PRP injections made can be frozen and stored for up to half a year for later treatments.
If your pet is suffering from any type of joint pain, PRP therapy may be a good option to consider. Contact us today to learn more about how this treatment could help your pet live a happier and healthier life.
