Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous biological product made from the horse's own blood. It can only be used in the same horse that has provided the blood sample. PRP contains a higher concentration of platelets than blood, and platelets are rich in various growth factors that benefit tissue healing. The idea behind using PRP is that the growth factors from platelets can aid repair of damaged tissues when injected directly into the damaged area.
