PetVivo’s innovative product, Spryng with OsteoCushion Technology, is a veterinary medical device comprised of millions of micronized hydrogel matrices, which are derived from natural biocompatible components. OsteoCushion Technology provides both reinforcing natural joint support to augment and reinforce missing and/or damaged cartilage, as well as delivers natural scaffolding to help address tissue defects. These attributes offer a great solution to manage lameness and joint afflictions, such as osteoarthritis, for companion animals in a simple in-clinic administration.

We work closely with companies leading these efforts to ensure veterinarians nationwide have access to the latest products and services that have the potential to help pets live longer and healthier lives,” said Steve Shell, president of MWI Animal Health. “We are thrilled to work with PetVivo to provide veterinarians with timely and reliable access to the company’s new medical device.”
