BENEFIT

4

SCIENTIFICALLY SPEAKING

The lubricious sponge-like particles of KUSH®, fill in the tears and voids in damaged cartilage, which creates a cushion and reinforces cartilage to inhibit bone on bone contact that left untreated causes pain and inflammation.  


How KUSH® WORKS

01
INJECT

Kush® is a veterinary injection designed to reinforce articulating cartilage tissue for the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis. Kush® is an injection given directly into your animal's joint by your veterinarian.

02
TREAT

The Kush® particle components are natural, animal based, and tightly cross-linked together to form a strong matrix material that resists enzymatic degradation, inhibits immune cell recognition, and thus, avoids the need for allergy pretesting.

03
RESULTS

The demonstrated Kush® effects are long-lasting. Veterinarians are reporting that the positive, cushioning effects typically last about 12 months, depending mostly on activity levels. The Kush® particles gradually resorb into the surrounding synovial tissue.

The PROOF IS IN THE PAW PRINTS

CASE STUDY 1: KONA 

Kona, a 4-month-old Labrador Retriever, was born with joint issues in her knees, shoulders, and hips. Destined to a life of pain and lameness, Kona was introduced to KUSH®. After her KUSH® treatment, Kona is now able to run, jump, walk, and play like all the other puppies. She takes daily walks in the mountains with her owner.

CASE STUDY 2: SHEP

Shep, a 13-year-old Australian Shepherd, was a candidate for total hip replacement surgery. Shep was treated with KUSH® instead. After his treatment with KUSH®, Shep was able to skip the surgery and went from a hurting dog to a happy dog! He now runs alongside his dog friends and takes long walks on his farm.

CASE STUDY 3: BRUCE

Bruce, a 3-year-old English Mastiff, was admitted to a veterinarian clinic when he had swelling and joint problems. After his treatment of KUSH®, Bruce is back to running around the yard and enjoying his new level of mobility.

CASE STUDY 4: FENDER BENDER

Fender Bender is a race horse who knocked his knee straight out of the gate during a race. Normally, that incident would have ended the race for him, but thanks to his treatment of KUSH®, Fender Bender was able to not only continue the race, he won FIRST PLACE! Now, that's the power of Kush®.

Testimonial

Golden Doodle, Hope, recovers from arthritis!

Chris, Hope's pet parent, shares his personal experience with KUSH®. At just 1 years old, Hope developed a limp in her left leg and struggled with discomfort. After a veterinary check-up, Hope was diagnosed with congenital arthritis. The only 2 options provided were a hip replacement or pain medication. However, Chris was then introduced to KUSH®, which, after treatment, allowed Hope to walk again with balance and ease for 9 more years! Hope now walks and runs, leading a normal dog life every day for her and for Chris.

Testimonial

Veterinarian, Dr. Sterns, shares the incredible impact of KUSH® on animal patients.

One of Dr. Stern's patients, a year-and-a-half year-old Mastiff was crippled with degenerative shoulder issues. After multiple diagnoses, it was claimed there was nothing to be done to help the Mastiff. However, Dr. Stern tried KUSH® by injecting it into the Mastiff's shoulder. "The very next day the dog was running around!" For more insight and animal case studies, watch the video.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Kush®?

Kush® is an IA injection of sterilized, hydrogel micro-particles that are wet, slippery and spongy. Our patented technology allows novel self-assembly of elastin, collagen and heparin to mimic cartilage extracellular matrix in both form and function. The Kush particle components are natural, animal based, and tightly cross-linked together to form a strong matrix material that resists enzymatic degradation, inhibits immune cell recognition, and thus, avoids the need for allergy pretesting.  

How does Kush® work?

Kush® uses precisely sized micro-particles for optimal joint spacing and for easy intra-articular injection with 18-23 gauge needles. Kush particles are too large to seep through synovial membranes, allowing long duration of their slippery cushion effects to reinforce the joint's articular cartilage and ameliorate or preclude the cartilage defects that cause pain to limit motion.

How long does Kush® last?

The demonstrated Kush® effects are long-lasting. Veterinarians are reporting that the positive, cushioning effects typically last about 12 months, depending mostly on activity levels. The Kush particles gradually resorb into the surrounding synovial tissue.

Has Kush® been studied?

Five plus years of Kush® case studies provided positive veterinarian testimonials. No adverse effects have been observed or reported other than some mild, short-term injection site responses.
