Platelet Rich Plasma

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelets cause blood clotting when tissue is damaged.  But they also contain growth factors that start the healing process and activate nature’s tissue healing and repairing mechanisms.

How do we use platelet-rich plasma?

The procedure is done under sedation and involves taking a blood sample from the patient. The blood is then processed to gather a higher-than-usual concentration of platelets, which is then injected into the affected joint.

Be Referred

We would love to be able to get your pet back on their feet. We don’t require a referral from your vet for your pet to receive treatment with us. We will contact your first opinion vet for a history and any X-rays etc. You just need to turn up with your ‘fur baby’ – and both relax! We have made Physio-Vet, as unlike a normal vets as possible. We don’t have examination tables, we have comfortable mats, so that we are down at your ‘fur baby’s’ level, to reassure them whilst they are examined and initial appointments aren’t rushed either, as we allow a full hour for it. So, please rest assured your ‘fur baby’ is in good, caring hands!
