Platelet Rich Plasma
Here at Ohio County Animal Clinic, PLLC, we are pleased to offer our patients PRP therapy to help them in their recovery.
PRP therapy is short for platelet-rich plasma therapy. We draw blood from a patient, and at this time we isolate the platelets from the blood, making platelet-rich plasma. Applying this blood directly to an injury 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 therapy works by using a patient’s own blood so that there is less of a chance of a reaction. We also use a sterile, closed system because the safety of our patients remains the most important to us.
We are so pleased to be able to offer PRP therapy to help our patients heal. If you have any questions about our procedures, feel free to contact the office at (270) 298-3109.
