When your pet is suffering, you want to do everything you can to help it. At Integrative Veterinary Wellness, serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area, we offer innovative services such as Platelet Rich Plasma treatments. Keep reading to find out how this treatment could help your animal.
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a type of pain management and healing procedure derived from using the proteins found in platelets. There are special proteins found in these cells that are also helpful in other ways. These platelets can be removed from regular blood and then re-injected into an animal. The PRP is strategically injected in areas that need healing. Once the PRP is re-introduced into this area, it stimulates the body’s natural healing process.
This type of treatment is often used to treat inflammatory conditions that are affecting the ligaments, muscles, and tendons. It is very useful in treating osteoarthritis. It has also been used to treat some types of bone diseases. It can also be used to speed healing and recovery following a bone fracture.
PRP is administered using platelets taken from the animal’s blood. This rarely results in any kind of side effects. If you have questions, you should discuss this with our vet. We will assess your pet’s condition to determine whether or not platelet rich plasma treatment is right for your pet.
