Regenerative Medicine for Pets

Natural Healing: Promotes the body’s own healing mechanisms to repair tissues
Effective Pain Management: Significantly reduces pain and inflammation in joints and soft tissues
Improved Mobility: Enhances your pet's mobility and overall quality of life, especially for those with chronic conditions.

Watch Dr Vanessa Waite explain the benefits and procedures of regenerative medicine for pets in the video above.

What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine offers advanced therapies to heal soft tissue injuries like tendon and ligament sprains, muscle strains, and osteoarthritis. It includes two primary treatments: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy and Stem Cell Therapy with PRP.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy:

  • Procedure: We collect a blood sample from your pet and spin it down to isolate the platelet-rich plasma.

  • Benefits: Injecting PRP into joints recruits growth factors and healing properties that regenerate cartilage and heal damaged areas, speeding up recovery from soft tissue injuries.

Stem Cell Therapy with PRP

  • Procedure: Stem cells are harvested from your pet's bone marrow, processed similarly to PRP, and injected into affected areas.

  • Benefits: Stem cells promote healing and reduce inflammation and pain, which is particularly beneficial for osteoarthritic joints where cartilage damage is severe.

Why Choose Regenerative Medicine?

  • Healing and Repair: Unlike traditional pain relief methods that only manage symptoms, regenerative medicine actively repairs tissues and improves joint health.

  • Long-lasting Results: Many pets experience significant improvement for six to twelve months or longer.

Our Process

  1. Preparation: We draw a blood sample using an anticoagulant and prepare the injection site.

  2. Centrifugation: The blood sample is processed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma.

  3. Injection: The PRP or stem cells are injected into the joint or affected area, with post-injection care to ensure comfort.

Results and Aftercare

Post-treatment, your pet may experience mild discomfort, which subsides quickly with pain relief. The majority of pets show notable improvement in mobility and comfort.

  • How does PRP therapy work?
    PRP therapy involves drawing a blood sample from your pet, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma, and injecting it into the injured area to promote healing and regeneration.
  • How long do the effects of regenerative medicine last?
    The benefits of regenerative medicine can last from six months to a year or longer, depending on the severity of the condition and the individual response of the pet.
  • Are there any side effects or risks?
    While most pets tolerate the treatments well, some may experience mild discomfort at the injection site, which usually subsides quickly. Pain relief medication can be provided to manage any temporary discomfort.
