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.

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
