PRP for Pets
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an advanced, non-surgical method that uses your pet’s own platelets and other blood components to optimize and accelerate healing. Platelets are well-known for their blood clotting abilities, but they also play an important role in recruiting other cells in the body to help heal damaged tissues.
At Colorado Springs Veterinary Surgery and Rehab Center, we take a small blood sample from your pet to create a special mixture of platelets, growth factors, and proteins. This mixture is what’s known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and it is delivered to the injured area via injection to initiate the healing and/or tissue regeneration process.
If your pet suffers from joint pain, ligament damage, wound inflammation/infections, or chronic disease, please let us know. Our doctors will evaluate your pet’s overall health and go over the benefits of PRP therapy. The procedure takes less than an hour, and 80% of patients see marked improvement from a single injection. The therapeutic effects usually last between 6–9 months.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy (usually done in conjunction with PRP) involves taking special cells collected from your dog’s bone marrow to repair, regenerate, and heal damaged areas in the body. Stem cells have the unique ability to differentiate themselves into specialized cells with specific functions such as muscle cells, bone cells, and brain cells.
No other cells in the body can do what stem cells do, which is why stem cell therapy is a revolutionary veterinary treatment for treating injured joints, degenerative disease, and even some cancers. At Colorado Springs Veterinary Surgery and Rehab Center, our experienced doctors are able to perform the entire procedure in a few hours and the benefits can last up to a year or more in some patients.
