We’ve used 44 V-PET units since May. Initially I was using V-PET in more advanced cases of OA but now I use V-PET earlier, targeting hips, partial cruciates, elbows, shoulder instabilities and pre-emptively prior to surgery. I’ve found most owners take it up after discussion of their treatment options. V-PET is affordable and covered by insurance. It’s easy to carry out - I can have the blood collected, processed and reinjected within 20 minutes. All have done something for the dog; some may not have done quite enough and in those cases we might consider giving another injection from the leftover serum, which we freeze. The dog can be sore for a couple of days and may require NSAIDs initially. Our ortho nurse calls the owner the next day and I usually see them at 3 days and 1 month post procedure. I like the fact I’m doing something constructive rather than just hiding the pain as we aim to slow down the progression of the disease, rather than mask it with NSAIDs.’

“Very encouraged by the cases we have treated so far, all with positive results and no adverse reactions in both young and old animals. I have used C-pet in selected cases for stable early partial cruciate ligament tears with very encouraging results delaying surgery and in some cases not requiring surgery for over a year since the injection”

“Treated a range of arthritic, non-responsive to NSAIDs dogs, and some young animals with soft tissue or joint injuries post surgery, I am very positive about the product and the effect it has on our referral cases. It is simple to use.” Jon Mills MA VetMB Cert.SAS MRCVS - West Midlands Referrals, Lichfield “We have incorporated the C-PET into our osteoarthritic clinics at the RVC. We have had some very good success stories on cases that were refractory to all other medical analgesic and disease modifying techniques.”

“We have used the C-PET on hocks, shoulders, cruciates, elbows all good effect with or without surgery. What initially convinced me of merits of the product was treating my own dog with early onstage arthritis that was on NSAIDs for two years. One V-PET injection and my dog is healthy, more active and completely off all NSAIDs. ”
