East End Veterinary Center offers a wide variety of emergency and specialty services that provide support to your pet when he or she needs it most.
Canine Platelet Enhancement Therapy (C-PET) is an alternative, non-surgical technique that enhances healing by stimulating stem cells to promote regrowth. A licensed veterinarian will take a blood sample from your pet and run it through a specialized filter, capturing the blood’s valuable platelets (platelets are what allows injuries to clot or “scab”), at a high concentration. Growth factors located on the platelets are pre-cursors to stem cells and when injected into a troublesome joint, have numerous regrowth abilities, working themselves into the joints to improve arthritis, joint degeneration, joint pain, lameness, tissue damage, and more. This therapy is minimally invasive and extremely low-stress for your dog; in most cases, your pet will return home to you the same day with little to no side effects! This therapy is perfect for those looking to try non-surgical alternative medical options for their pet.
