As people working in the veterinary field, the staff at Dupont Veterinary Clinic want to do everything we can to help animals. We work hard each day to relieve pain and suffering, and to help our patients get well.
Part of being good at our job means staying ahead of advances in veterinary medicine and riding the forefront of new treatments and diagnostic testing. The use of platelet rich plasma in our hospital is just one example of how we are striving to bring the best to our pet patients.
Principles of Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma, otherwise referred to as PRP, is the portion of centrifuged blood that contains a concentrated number of platelets. These are the cells in the blood that facilitate clotting.
