Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Petvivo Cares is a community-focused organization dedicated to advancing the health and well-being of companion animals.

We partner with the animal cares community to provide reduced or no-cost PetVivo Spryng™ with OsteoCushion™ micro-cushion treatments to animals suffering from arthritis and other afflictions. We call these treatments Companion animal nonprofits, shelters, or other community organizations can apply for treatments based on financial need.

1. What is Spryng™?
Spryng™ with OsteoCushion™ Technology is a
gel-like substance comprised of two naturally
derived proteins bound together by a special
method that provides the veterinarian with an
easy-to-administer intra-articular injectable
device. Spryng works as cartilage reinforcement
for osteoarthritis and other joint issues. Spryng is
classified as a FDA veterinary medical device. It
provides long-lasting relief from the degradation
of joints associated with osteoarthritis.

2. Is it safe?
Yes. Spryng is a device that is produced from
naturally derived products that have been tested
at human use levels. As a veterinary medical
device, it has no pharmacologic, chemical, or
metabolic action. It has been used in over 600
animals, including dogs, horses, cats, and rabbits.

3. What is OsteoCushion™ Technology?
Spryng with OsteoCushion Technology is
comprised of millions of micronized hydrogel
matrices, which are derived from the natural
components collagen and elastin. OsteoCushion
Technology provides both reinforcing natural
joint support to replace missing or damaged
cartilage function and delivers natural
scaffolding.

4. Are there any other veterinary products
that are like Spryng?
Spryng is the only naturally derived cartilage
reinforcement product for veterinary use.
5. How long does Spryng last?
This depends on the status of the animal’s
specific joint and how much pre-existing
damage is present. It is always prudent to have
your animal examined by a veterinarian at least
twice a year to monitor their health.
6. How fast does Spryng work?

Spryng starts functioning immediately upon
injection by the veterinarian. The animal may
not show immediate results as they may still
be remembering the past pain experience and
cautiously test their limbs for function. Because
of the previous joint damage, expected improvement may take up to 2 to 3 weeks.

7. How often do animals need to be injected
with Spryng?

Spryng may be used as needed. A single injection
may last for as long as 12 months. Always ask
your veterinarian.

8. Can our family resume normal interaction with our animal after the procedure?
Often after injection, exercise restrictions will not
be needed. However, your veterinarian is the best
source of necessary instructions for your animal
after the procedure.

9. Can a single joint be treated, or is it best
to treat multiple joints of the front legs or
hind legs at the same time?
Many times, as one joint is deteriorating, undue
weight is placed on the opposite leg/joint,
resulting in additional damage. A bilateral
procedure may be recommended and can be
done at the same time.
