Is My Pet a Candidate for Treatment?
What is PRP?
The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain mass quantities of bio-active proteins, including growth factors and signaling proteins that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration.
- These bio-active proteins can initiate tissue healing, and reduce inflammation.
- A natural alternative to NSAIDs.
PRP can be used to aid in the treatment of many ailments as seen in the illustration below.
Ardent’s PRP Kit can be used to treat injured joints, tendons, or used in its gel form.
Not all PRP treatments are the same
Ardent’s PureVet PRP kit was tested by the University of Georgia with the following outcomes
- Medivet’s PRP kit isolated 500x more platelets than leukocytes which is 3.5 fold better than the next best competitor and 24 fold better than the worst competitor
- The Platelet concentration was at 3-4x baseline
Note: these samples were tested from the same dogs in a controlled environment.
Versatility of PureVet PRP
“I have been extremely pleased with the results I have seen with PUREVET Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy in my patients. I have used PRP therapy in the treatment of osteoarthritis, biceps tenosynovitis, as well as nonsurgical management of chronic Achilles mechanism injuries (in conjunction with custom orthotic devices). The system is easy to use, affordable and has been enthusiastically accepted by my referring veterinarians and clients!”

These radiographs were taken from the left hock of a 7 year old FS Mixbreed dog that was chronically lame in both hind legs. The ankles were swollen and painful, not responding to any anti-inflammatory medication. The pronounced dystrophic mineralization was present in both hocks, but the response to regenerative medicine was striking on the left side. The owner consented to injections of PRP, or platelet rich plasma, into the gastrocnemius tendon as well as an intravenous application of the autologous fluid. As you can see after a few weeks, the mineralization is less pronounced. There is less soft tissue swelling, and there is a greater degree of joint mobility. Most importantly, the dog is more comfortable and does not require NSAIDs
