Pro-Stride is an autologous protein solution (APS), which is a concentrated solution of cells, platelets, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory proteins that is isolated from your horse’s or your dog’s own blood. This regenerative medicine treatment is essentially a combination of IRAP and PRP in one product. This solution of healing factors is then injected into inflamed and injured joints. It is a very portable system that allows our veterinarians to provide advanced treatment for osteoarthritis in the clinic or on your farm in one visit. The beneficial effects of just one injection of Pro-Stride can last up to a year. Because this is a natural, steroid-free treatment, you avoid the potentially deleterious effects associated with steroid injections. Results include reduced pain associated with osteoarthritis and improved mobility, as well as the regenerative/healing effect. Pro-Stride can also slow cartilage degradation.
