Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a blood component containing concentrated amounts of platelets and growth factors. This is a newly trending treatment in human sports orthopedic medicine, used primarily to address sports-related injuries and wear-and-tear issues. At Veterinary Healing Center, we are pleased to offer MediVet Biologics’ Platelet Rich Plasma Kit.
This breakthrough product uses your pets own blood plasma, including concentrated platelets that we activate. Platelets contain growth factors and bioactive proteins, which can initiate tissue healing and reduce inflammation. Once activated, the healing properties of the proteins and growth factors become accelerated, offering an all-natural alternative to drugs like narcotics and steroids. This allows for a non-surgical means of providing high doses of the body’s own healing factors directly to the areas where they are needed.
Medivet’s PRP Kit can be introduced topically in or around an injured joint or tendon. It can also be used in its gel form to treat large burns or wounds. MediVet’s PRP is not limited to acute injuries. It can also be used to address and manage chronic conditions, such as:
- Promotion of post-surgical healing
- Osteoarthritis/degenerative joint disease
- Wound or burn care
- General cases of inflammation
- ….and more!
