Here at Charter Equine & Small Animal Hospital, we are pleased to offer our patients IRAP therapy to help them in their recovery.
IRAP therapy is used to treat osteoarthritic conditions that can cause lameness in horses. To do IRAP therapy, we take your horse’s own blood to help in the healing process. We extract good proteins from that blood and inject it into the affected joint. It works by amplifying the amount of anti-inflammatory and regenerative proteins found in the blood, helping the joint to heal more quickly and efficiently.
IRAP works well because it uses natural anti-inflammatory proteins. There are less side effects or a risk of an allergic reaction since we use your own horse’s blood. It is also quite effective.
We are so pleased to be able to offer IRAP therapy to help our patients heal. If you have any questions about this procedure, feel free to contact the office at 806-418-2175.
