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 in Folsom, 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. McKerney has been treating my cockapoo, Waldo, with accutpunture for a couple of months now due to a spinal injry that resulted in paralization in the hind area. Waldo can now walk, a little wobbly. When recommended to me we did not know if Waldo would ever be able to walk again. Dr, McKerney is worth our drive (50miles) and time. She was also very thorough in reviewing all of Waldo's medical records prior to seeing him. Waldo is never expereinces any anxiety about going - that says a lot!

      Our dog Mucho was in intense pain last Christmas and having trouble walking. After a few weeks of rest and pain medication Dr Cahoon began treating him with laser and acupuncture therapy along with Chinese herbs. We are happy to report Mucho is now a happy active fellow. As we continue with his therapy, we are very grateful for this wonderful veterinary clinic.

      We have been taking our Labrador to The Veterinary Healing Center for almost two years to treat her with eastern medicine/procedures for radiating pain from her neck to down her front leg. After about 6 acupuncture treatments and cervical formula powder supplements we saw a remarkable improvement! She went from limping and barely able to climb stairs to running around the yard and jumping into the pool! She was like a brand new dog! We continue with monthly maintenance treatments and we couldn’t be happier with the results! We now take our English Golden Retriever puppy there for checkups!
