What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for pets?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that harnesses your pet's own blood plasma with concentrated platelets to accelerate healing. Our PUREVET PRP product is designed specifically for pets, offering a natural and effective solution to various conditions.

How does PRP Therapy work?

During a PRP Therapy session, a small amount of your pet's blood is drawn and processed using a specialized centrifuge. This separates the platelet-rich plasma, which is then injected into the affected area. The high concentration of growth factors and bioactive proteins stimulates tissue repair and reduces inflammation, providing a natural alternative to drugs and steroids.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with PRP Therapy for pets?

PRP Therapy is generally considered safe for pets, as it utilizes their own blood components. However, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. These can include temporary swelling, discomfort at the injection site, or minimal bleeding. Our veterinarians will discuss these risks with you during the consultation.

Is PRP Therapy suitable for all pets?

PRP Therapy can be beneficial for many pets, but individual cases may vary. Factors such as the pet's overall health, specific condition being treated, and other treatments they are receiving will be considered. Our veterinarians will assess your pet's suitability for PRP Therapy during the consultation.

How many PRP Therapy sessions does my pet need?

The number of PRP Therapy sessions required can vary based on the condition being treated and your pet's response to the treatment. Some pets may see improvement after a single session, while others may benefit from multiple sessions spaced apart. Our veterinarians will create a personalized treatment plan for your pet.

Can PRP Therapy be combined with other treatments?

Yes, PRP Therapy can often be used in conjunction with other treatments to enhance results. It can complement surgical procedures, medications, physical therapy, and more. Our veterinarians will discuss the best approach for your pet's specific needs.

How long do the effects of PRP Therapy last?

The duration of PRP Therapy effects can vary depending on the condition being treated, your pet's overall health, and lifestyle factors. Some pets may experience long-lasting benefits, while others may require periodic maintenance sessions. Our team will provide guidance on post-treatment care and follow-up.
