Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can help heal and repair injured tendons and ligaments on a cellular level. PRP is a blood byproduct produced by special centrifugation of the patient’s blood. Rich in growth factors, PRP is a natural, patient-derived product that is safe and effective. The procedure is completed in the standing horse under sedation and a local nerve block. In most cases, a single PRP injection will aid in resolution of a tendon injury; the treatment can be repeated if necessary for severe or nonresponsive injuries.

A Message From Bend Equine Medical Center To Our Small Animal Division Clients

As of March 31, 2023, Bend Equine Medical Center will be discontinuing our small animal veterinary division other than chiropractic and acupuncture. As always, we continue to proudly serve as Central Oregon's premier equine hospital and offer around-the-clock care for your horses and equids.

You and your pets are close to our hearts and we are honored you trusted us with their care over the past decade. Please contact us to have your pets' records transferred to your new small animal veterinarian.

Thank you for your email
