Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a blood component containing concentrated amounts of platelets and growth factors. This is a newly trending treatment in human sports orthopedic medicine, used for many sports injuries and wear-and-tear issues. At Veterinary Healing Center, we use MediVet Biologics’ Platelet Rich Plasma Kit.

This breakthrough product for pets uses your pets own blood plasma with concentrated platelets that we activate.  Platelets contain growth factors and bioactive proteins, which can initiate tissue healing and assist with inflammation.  Once activated, the healing properties of the proteins and growth factors become accelerated, offering an all-natural alternative to drugs like narcotics and steroids. This allows for a non-surgical means of providing high doses of the body’s own healing factors directly to the areas where they are needed.

Medivet’s PRP Kit can be introduced topically in or around an injured joint, tendon, or used in its gel form to treat large burns or wounds. MediVet’s PRP is not limited to acute injuries, it can also be used for chronic conditions.

      Dr Brad quite literally saved our old girl's life today, simply by caring enough to keep trying to solve the mystery behind her symptoms. Thank you for not giving up on her and for helping us manage the costs of her care as well. Highly recommend this office!!

      The Veterinary Healing Center of Folsom and El Dorado Hills has been fantastic. They have been there through some of the most difficult decisions (letting our Oreo go) to just making sure our girls are healthy (annual checkups). They are loving to our Boston and Chihuahua even when the dogs are not willing to be touched. This is a very Caring place. If you want to go somewhere that is fabulous with your fur babies this is the place. ��
