I took my herding dog Hope to Mountainside Veterinary Rehabilitation to see Dr. Carlson as she had injured a muscle in her upper right front leg as well as her toe. Through rehabilitation involving acupuncture, chiropractic and massage as well as exercises to assist the muscle in healing, Hope is back competing. Dr. Carlson provided excellent care as well as taught me how to continue to support Hope as a working dog.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a convenient same day treatment that harnesses the healing abilities of the patient’s blood platelets. Veterinarians utilize the treatment in conjunction with common surgeries or as a part of treatment plans to combat injury and disease.
The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain mass quantities of bio-active proteins, including growth factors and signaling proteins that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These bio-active proteins can initiate tissue healing and reduce inflammation.
