Pathologies of the musculoskeletal system play a mayor role for animals. Injuries to joints, tendons and the back may be highly restrictive. Not only the animals suffer, patient owners are confronted with highly emotional as well as economic consequences.
Conventional medication (painkillers, cortisone) can be effective though not necessarily long lasting and safe. Regenerative medicine employing the bodies own proteins (Growth-factors and Cytokines) is long lasting effective and gentle. Autologous (derived from the patient) blood products like Autologous Conditioned Serum (ACS) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contain many useful proteins that control, regulate and optimize healing. In order to use the proteins regenerative effect the patients own blood has to be treated in a special way.
