ONE INJECTION IS MOBILITY FOR OVER ONE YEAR
Discover how Kush® technology is different and can positively impact your veterinary practice and patients' lives.
Kush® is an intra-articular injection comprised of patented,
gel-like biomaterial for companion animal osteoarthritis.
Our Leading product, Kush®, is a veterinary device designed to help reinforce articulating cartilage tissue for the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis. This system uses an intra-articular injection of cartilage-like particles to enhance the force cushioning function of the synovial fluid, first developed and tested for equine and canine animals.
Since Kush® mimics the joint function of the articulating cartilage and synovial fluid by dampening mechanical forces and reducing friction without pharmacologic, chemical or metabolic action, we believe it is considered a medical device by FDA guidelines.
Kush® not only provides immediate treatment for cartilage damage, it also provides long-term joint reinforcement and protection from regular stress and strain, allowing a longer “Running is Life” happy existence for our animals. Made into a strong, hydrated material from natural tissue matrix scaffolding components, collagen, elastin and heparin, Kush particles are injected into the synovial space to uniquely reinforce native cartilage by matching its wet, slippery form and cushioning function. These injected sterilized, hydrogel micro-particles are precisely sized to allow easy injection and correct articular spacing for less pain joint motion.
Safety, Efficacy and Longevity
Osteoarthritis (OA), Degenerative Joint Disease and cartilage injury, detected and treated early with Kush® will show the best results. Injected Kush particles rapidly reduce pain with slippery force cushioning support to reinforce cartilage tissue function and prevent further damage. Since Kush particles are too large to seep through synovial membranes, they stay in the articulating space to provide their slippery cushioning effects for a long duration.
These particles are made of natural components tightly cross-linked together to form a strong matrix material that resists enzymatic degradation, inhibits immune cell recognition, and therefore, avoids the need for allergy pretesting. Over five years of case studies have provided positive testimonials from many veterinarians, and no adverse effects have been observed other than some mild, short-term injection site swelling.
More About KUSH™
How KUSH® WORKS
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 the animal's joint a certified and licensed veterinarian.
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.
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.

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.
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.
“I think Kush® is an extremely useful product for improving joint function. I’ve used it many times with outstanding results.”
