Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that can be used in the treatment of various orthopedic and soft-tissue conditions. PRP is blood plasma, which contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. It is commonly used to treat wear and tear injuries of the joints and ligaments, but it can also speed up healing and reduce inflammation for wounds and surgical sites. Platelet rich plasma accelerates the healing process by delivering growth factors and bioactive proteins directly to the area needed to initiate tissue regeneration.
One of the benefits of using PRP therapy is that it is a drug-free, natural treatment alternative. Your pet will be at a very low risk for any side effects and should experience minimal discomfort from their treatment.
