Here at Charter Equine & Small Animal Hospital, we are pleased to offer our patients PRP therapy to help them in their recovery.
PRP therapy is short for Platelet Rich Plasma therapy. It also involves drawing blood from a patient, though this time, we want to isolate the platelets from the blood, making platelet-rich plasma. Once this blood is applied directly to an injury, it speeds up the healing process. It has been used successfully for skin, bone, and soft tissue injuries. It is also great to use for wounds that are having trouble healing.
PRP works by using a patient’s own blood so that there is less of a chance of a reaction. It also uses a sterile, closed system because the safety of our patients remains the most important.
We are so pleased to be able to offer PRP therapy to help our patients heal. If you have any questions about this procedure, feel free to contact the office at 806-418-2175.
