What is Platelet Enhancement Therapy (PET)?
PET concentrates platelets and their associated growth factors from a small volume of your animal's own blood for use as a cell therapy. It is a proven and natural option for treating osteoarthritis (1), joints, tendon and soft tissue injuries.
- Clinically proven
- Minimally invasive u Safe to use (1)
- Quick procedure
- Long lasting effects
How can PET help?
The cell therapy is injected directly into the injured area. Platelets are activated at the site of injury, releasing growth factors. This accelerates healing and reduces recovery times. Studies have shown that PET provides a large quantity of platelets and growth factors. (2)
