I saw just a couple of posts on the topic of platelet rich plasma injections from 2 years ago (2019). I am currently throwing the whole arsenal at my recent flatcoated retriever amputee (Wishbone) and he had his first injection last week (three injections total each spaced 3 weeks apart). He seemed really sore afterwards. Have any of you used this treatment and if so...what kind of results did you see? Many thanks!

You are so welcome. It was great to chat with you last night!! Keep in touch and keep us posted. Holler if you'd like help with photos and OH!
