The platelet gel is a autologous or heterologous hemo-component for topical use by the aggregation of a platelet pellet with calcium and biological or pharmacological activating factors. The platelets in the clot act as reservoir and source of different growth factors involved in the reparation and recovery of the tissues. The authors report a method for the preparation of autologous platelet gel in dogs and some preliminary applications in two groups of animals showing spontaneous injury: chronic skin and orthopaedic lesions. In the present work, the production of platelet gel has been cheap and easy; the final product has been an aseptic gel contained a good number of platelets. For the skin lesions the clinical outcomes have always been positive, and in the orthopaedics group the processes of recovery and reparation have occurred without delays. The results encourage to perform further studies to evaluate the possibility of a wider clinical application.
