PRP injections, or platelet rich plasma injections, are an all-natural alternative to treating and managing your pet’s pain. It is a non-surgical means of providing high doses of the body’s own healing factors to the necessary areas.
PRP is blood plasma that contains concentrated amounts of platelets and growth factors. These platelets also contain bioactive proteins that initiate tissues healing and assist with decreasing inflammation.
PRP injections are most commonly injected directly into the affected joint capsules to manage pain and treat chronic conditions such as degenerative joint disease. They can also be used in dogs and cats to treat many acute injuries such as large burns or wounds.
