The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries
PRP is processed in our clinic from your pet’s blood by a sterile process involving centrifugation of the blood to collect a portion that is rich in platelets. This sterile PRP can then be injected into your pet to help decrease inflammation and promote healing. PRP has been used with some amazing results when injected into joints or muscle/tendon injury. PRP can be used alone, but is also a critical part of Stem Cell therapy.
