V-PET is a new, safe option for treating osteoarthritis
Known as “blood spinning” in the professional sports world, some top athletes have relied on this new technique to get them back on court! Rafa Nadal, 10 times Grand Slam Champion, is arguably the most famous player who has had this treatment. He also relies on top up therapy using the new K Laser.
- Natural cell therapy to promote healing
- Minimally invasive
- Reduces the risk of adverse reactions through the use of your dog’s own blood
- Same day procedure
- Can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments, depending on your companions needs.
- Substantially cheaper than stem cell infusion – and often works as well as the more involved stem cell procedure
A natural and safe cell therapy to relieve the pain of joint disease or injury. It promotes healing and reduces recovery time using your dog’s own blood.
What are platelets?
Platelets are found in blood and promote clotting. Platelets contain a variety of growth factors* that enhance wound healing and induce tissue regeneration.
*Examples include: Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF); Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta); Epidermal growth factor (EGF); Insulin-like growth factor (IGF); Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF); Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF).
What is Platelet Enhancement Therapy (V-PET)?
V-PET concentrates platelets (PLT), white blood cells (WBC – some of which are stem cells), and their associated growth factors from a small volume of your pet’s own blood for use as a cell therapy.
How can V-PET help?
Tendon and ligament injuries, and joint disease like osteoarthritis, are often difficult to heal, but treatment with V-PET can help. The cell therapy is injected directly into the injured area. Platelets are activated at the site of injury, releasing growth factors.
Lab tests have shown that these growth factors play a key role in regenerating and revascularising tissue. This accelerates healing and reduces recovery times.
