Platelet Rich Plasma

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated blood sample that contains isolated cells (platelets) and the fluid portion of blood (plasma).

Conditions Platelet Rich Plasma can be used to treat:

- Osteoarthritis
- Acute and Chronic Soft Tissue Injuries
- Tendon Injuries
- Ligament Injuries
- Muscle Injuries
- Certain Spinal Conditions

When used as a therapy, PRP can help regenerate and heal tissues by:

- Recruiting cells to an area of injury to clean up dead and injured cells
- Releasing proteins called “Growth Factors” which are responsible for tissue regeneration

What’s involved with PRP therapy?

If you wish to consider PRP therapy plans, discuss with your veterinarian so that he/she can schedule an office evaluation at Animotion Animal Rehabilitation Center. A small amount of blood is taken from your dog and is processed using a specialized system that concentrates the platelets and the plasma. Once the PRP processing is complete, it is injected directly into the area of injury.

What results can be expected from PRP therapy?

Many veterinarians have noticed therapeutic effects last between 6-12 months for dogs with mild to moderate osteoarthritis.
