What conditions is it used for and how(biologically speaking) does it help.

5/13/2011 3:10:22 PM

I don't know enough about the benefits or drawbacks

5/12/2011 5:03:49 PM

Would be better able to offer an opinion if I had already had occasion to use it

5/12/2011 2:52:32 PM

I would love to use it, but it is too expensive.

Have witnessed some wonderful recoveries w/ PRP by my vet.

5/11/2011 6:49:13 PM

I have not read anything about this and have no experience to say.

5/11/2011 6:36:45 PM

None of the above because I don't know anything about it.

We had a 15 year old pony that rebowed. We treated with PRP, still sound at 20

5/11/2011 4:20:25 PM

excellent for a front suspensory injury that wouldn't heal

5/11/2011 12:55:58 PM

cost is a factor

My horse is still recovering from BMAC/PRP, but looks better thus far.

5/11/2011 9:08:07 AM

Worth the money but my horse's injury to left hind suspensory injury did not respond to it.

5/11/2011 8:30:58 AM

whole blood is better -- i know from past illness in my pony

5/10/2011 8:33:35 PM

can you use it for laminitis?

5/10/2011 7:03:16 PM

If the vet sincerely feels it is the best thing then go for it.

5/10/2011 6:25:39 PM

my horse became sound with a 50 50 chance of ever being sound and comfortable again.

5/10/2011 5:19:18 PM

I would use it if the cost was not too much different that usual treatments.

5/10/2011 4:58:22 PM

I would certainly use it if it were the best course of treatment for my animals condition.

5/10/2011 4:07:16 PM

5/10/2011 4:06:32 PM

I would have to study it more to have an opinion

5/10/2011 4:05:50 PM

wish my ortho knew how to use it!

5/10/2011 4:05:37 PM

Not sure I could afford it.

5/10/2011 3:35:29 PM

Don't really know anything about it

5/10/2011 3:26:52 PM

Would have to go so far to find a vet around here that does it, wouldn't be worth it

5/10/2011 2:21:34 PM
