Pet Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

At Northridge Veterinary Clinic and Rehabilitation in Wichita, KS, we offer pet platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections as a regenerative therapy option to help pets heal from musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.


When are Pet PRP Injections Necessary?

Pet PRP injections may be recommended in various situations, including:

  • Treatment of osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease
  • Management of tendon and ligament injuries, such as cruciate ligament tears
  • Accelerated healing of soft tissue injuries, such as muscle strains or sprains
  • Post-surgical recovery to promote tissue repair and reduce inflammation

If your pet is experiencing chronic pain, mobility issues, or has been diagnosed with a musculoskeletal injury, our veterinary team may recommend PRP injections as part of their treatment plan.

Understanding Pet Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

What are Pet Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections? Pet platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections involve extracting a small sample of the pet’s own blood and processing it to concentrate the platelets and growth factors. The resulting PRP solution is then injected directly into the affected area, where it stimulates the body’s natural healing response and accelerates tissue repair.

How Pet PRP Injections Work: Platelets play a crucial role in the body’s healing process, as they contain growth factors and proteins that promote tissue regeneration and repair. When injected into an injured area, PRP releases these growth factors, attracting stem cells and promoting the formation of new blood vessels and connective tissue. This helps speed up the healing process and improve the pet’s overall condition.

Benefits of Pet Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Non-Surgical Treatment Option

Pet PRP injections offer a non-surgical alternative to traditional treatments for musculoskeletal injuries, such as surgery or long-term medication. This minimally invasive procedure can help pets avoid the risks and complications associated with surgery and anesthesia.

Reduced Pain and Inflammation

PRP injections have been shown to effectively reduce pain and inflammation in pets suffering from conditions such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and ligament injuries. By targeting the underlying cause of pain and inflammation, PRP can provide long-lasting relief and improve the pet’s quality of life.

Enhanced Healing and Recovery

Pet PRP injections promote faster healing and recovery by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. This can help pets return to normal activity levels more quickly and reduce the risk of recurrent injuries or chronic pain.
