What is V-PET?
V-PET – Veterinary Platelet Enhancement Therapy V-PET (veterinary platelet enhancement therapy) is a low-cost platelet harvesting device which uses the horse’s own blood to produce 8ml of autologous concentrate with an average 7-fold increase in platelets (having the characteristics of PRP or platelet-rich plasma).
It is a completely sterile, fully enclosed, patient-side filtration system which means V-PET kits can be used anywhere with no need to take the horse into the clinic. The gravity filtration takes only 15 minutes so is quick and easy to do in one appointment and V-PET concentrate can be frozen for up to six months to allow for repeat treatment.
V-PET kits are produced by PALL Corporation who are world leaders in filtration. For more detailed information on platelet therapy and V-PET please click here.
