PRP

Izzy Rae recently posed for her rehab graduation picture.

I don't know if this expression accurately conveys how she feels about posing, but, hey, the picture is a riot!

Izzy Rae has people who have allowed her to benefit from several of the services at KVet.

Obviously, she has rocked rehab.

She is also an acupuncture patient of Dr. Hougentogler's.

And, recently, she had PRP as well.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a technique that uses the patient's own blood to stimulate local or targeted healing.

Sam is preparing the blood drawn from a patient.

After the blood is properly prepared, it is injected back into the patient in the specific area where we want to promote the healing process.

Dr. Hougentogler and Dr. Konegger have both successfully used PRP to help patients at KVet.

PRP is often helpful in treating degenerative joints, promoting soft tissue healing (if full recovery has not resulted after several weeks of other care), and getting greater strength and resilience in tendons and ligaments. 

Since we are using the patient's own blood, the process is reliably safe.

PRP is also well studied, and scientifically supported as a useful and helpful therapy.

The vets at KVet can help you decide if PRP is a useful tool for your pet.

Here we are "more serious"!
