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.
Here at Shirley Veterinary Hospital, we are pleased to offer our patients PRP therapy to help them in their recovery.
