Toronto Equine Hospital offers a wide range of diagnostic services, surgical procedures and medical treatments.
(Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell Therapy)
The Toronto Equine Hospital offers both Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell therapy as regenerative medical therapies for tendon and ligament injuries. Our PRP processing technology enables concentration of the horses’ own platelets from the blood, which contain numerous healing and growth factors. These in turn, facilitate and improve the healing process of the injured area.
Stem Cell therapy involves obtaining a stem cell sample from the horse, harvesting those stem cells to a higher concentration, and injecting the cells into the injured area. Stem cells have the capacity to differentiate into various tissue types which facilitates healing of the injured area and decreases the amount of scar tissue.
