VetStem Biopharma is Pleased to Announce Dr. Douglas Stramel of Advanced Care Veterinary Services is Successfully Using the Pall V-PET™ Platelet Therapy System

Dr. Douglas Stramel of Advanced Care Veterinary Services in Carrollton, Texas has been using the Pall Veterinary Platelet Enhancement Therapy System (V-PET™) for nearly three years. A proponent of Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Stramel has been credentialed to perform VetStem Regenerative Cell Therapy since 2007 and began using V-PET™ 2016. V-PET™ is a gravity filtration-based platelet therapy kit that produces a platelet concentrate rich in natural healing cells. Supported by veterinary peer-reviewed publications, V-PET™ has been shown to be an effective regenerative medicine solution for the treatment of joint disease, soft tissue injuries, and to assist in the resolution of wounds in both dogs and horses.

One of Dr. Stramel’s recent patients is a Great Dane named Pinky. At seven years old and 170 pounds, Pinky is considered a senior dog. In mid-2018, Pinky slipped on a wet driveway and ruptured her cruciate ligament. She was unable to put any weight on her right rear leg, which for a dog her size, makes life pretty complicated. She could no longer go on walks and struggled to get in and out of the car. Playing could only be done while Pinky was lying on the floor. She could not go up stairs and had trouble getting on the couch and into the bed. She also struggled to go to the bathroom.

After being told surgery was Pinky’s only option, her owner, Rebecca, took Pinky to Dr. Stramel for a second opinion. As a Certified Veterinary Pain Practitioner, Dr. Stramel is dedicated to providing an array of advanced pain-management techniques for his patients. For Pinky, he recommended treatment with the Pall V-PET™, in addition to acupuncture, laser therapy, and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory.

Pinky received her first platelet therapy treatment on June 26th, 2018. After a simple blood collection, Pinky’s blood was run through the specialized V-PET™ filter, which is designed to selectively capture platelets to produce a platelet concentrate. The concentrate was injected directly into Pinky’s right knee. Platelets, when exposed to damaged tissue, are triggered to release growth factors that stimulate tissue repair. Since Pinky was both the donor and recipient, there was very little risk of rejection.

According to Dr. Stramel, Pinky noticeably improved eight days after receiving platelet therapy. Beginning in July, Pinky began weekly acupuncture and biweekly laser therapy sessions. On August 2nd, Pinky received a second injection utilizing the Pall V-PET™ kit. Like before, Pinky’s blood was run through the V-PET™ filter and she received a concentrated dose of platelets into her right knee. Approximately two weeks after the second injection, Pinky was no longer limping. She received two more rounds of acupuncture and one more round of laser therapy at which point it was decided that Pinky was doing so well, she could discontinue both therapies. Currently, Pinky is maintained on one anti-inflammatory pill daily. Before and after videos of Pinky can be found here (after video in the comments).

Though Pinky was non-weight bearing on her right rear leg prior to receiving platelet therapy, her mom reported that she was able to resume all of her normal activities after treatment. She goes on three walks a day, including one walk that is always over a mile. She jumps in and out of the car with ease and has no problem with stairs. Her mom said she has also run around the backyard chasing squirrels. Though Pinky is seven years old, a senior for a dog her size, she was able to bounce back from a torn cruciate ligament with the help of Dr. Stramel and Veterinary Platelet Enhancement Therapy. Pleased with Pinky’s outcome, Rebecca stated, “I would highly recommend PRP as it was a miracle to see her recover so quickly.”
