Recently Dana Westerman, a veterinarian at the Seattle Zoo shared a story about a Tiger’s “tale” in a recent documentary about its flagship product Kush, narrated by John Dolan, a managing member of PetVivo, Inc. (OTCQB: PETV) and Tracy Turner, DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine).
You can download a copy of the video here:
A tiger at Dr. Westerman’s zoo had been licking his tail incisively bald, and an x-ray confirmed evidence of arthritis. Dr. Westerman, the veterinarian anesthetized the tiger, took some radiographs, placed the needles radiographically and injected Kush in four joints of his tail. Subsequently, the tiger’s hair began to grow back, and he is no longer licking his tail.
Prior to this, Dr. Westerman had tried laser therapy by working on the tail outside of his cage with the laser. With anesthesia being an issue, she wanted to find a solution that she did not have to repeat.
Kush is made from all-natural materials; collagen elastin and heparin, lasts for 12 months or longer and can be repeated each year.
Dr. Westerman also had great success with a horse that one of her veterinary clients had adopted which developed a torn stifle meniscus, and the prior owner of the horse spent a great deal of money on treatments but had eventually had thrown in the towel and advised euthanasia. Dana initially tried stem cells, followed by Kush. A few months later when Dana went to re-visit the horse, she found him trotting around and thought it was a completely different horse.
Kush is expected to launch in Q1 2021, with sales in the $4.8 billion dog and horse therapeutics market, and Petvivo (OTCQB: PETV) currently has 17 products in its pipeline.
Currently manufacturing commercializing and licensing innovative medical devices and therapeutics for companion animals, PetVivo, Inc. (OTCQB: PETV) is Emerging Biomedical device company located in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The company originally began with a group of innovative individuals from the medical device industry developing human based products with an attempt to leverage the human based therapies into the companion market.
Receiving his DVM degree from Colorado State University in 1978, Tracy Turner went on to an internship at the University of Georgia and further to achieve a Master of Science degree at Perdue University in 1981. Dr. Turner is the founder of Turner Equine Sports Medicine and Surgery.
Kush treats the root cause of a joint affliction, such as the loss of cartilage in a way that does not treat the symptoms but treats the affliction itself. Kush acts like a small sponge when put into the joint, which fills in the gaps or loss of cartilage, creating a cushion between the bones and preventing bone on bone contact.
Originally made for the cosmetics market, Kush was originally introduced to Dr. Turner 10 years ago where he was invited to try the injection in a horse’s foot, and subsequently, after astonishing results tried the injection in other joints that he had worked with. Dr. Turner has gone on to try other products in the space but to put in his words “Kush is better because it’s all natural”.
In June of 2018, Dr. Turner was added to PetVivo’s advisory board.
In the presentation, Dr. Turner recalls a horse with an injured meniscus that was no longer responsive to any other therapy. As a last resort, he injected the horse with Kush, and at his follow up appointment two weeks later, Dr. Turner was so amazed at the results that he thought the owner switched horses on him.
PetVivo Holdings, Inc. made a name for itself when a new successful Kush study came to light when Fender Bender, a racehorse suffering from osteoarthritis, was put up for sale and claimed for $3,000.00 and the new owner treated him with PetVivo’s Kush. Fender Bender won at Canterbury Park on August 4, 2020.
The product is easy to use and a a great product for vets because of its relatively inexpensive cost and high margins.

PetVivo Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: PETV) also recently announced that a company out of Orlando, Florida called nScrypt that designs and manufactures high-precision industrial Micro-dispensing and Direct Digital Manufacturing equipment, has just successfully 3D bio-printed PetVivo’s (OTCQB: PETV) biomaterial for orthopedic implants using its Bio-Fabrication Tool (BAT). To the best of the company’s knowledge, there is no other company that has the ability to provide these life-based components for the 3D printing marketplace.

With regard to nScrypt, the applications and cures for this technology are endless. Implants, replacements, up until and including the present, have been made with foreign ingredients like titanium and other metals. The future of this science now lies with the technology that allows for a more biologically familiar biomaterial. PetVivo’s biomaterial is made from the same components as the body’s natural tissue, allowing cells to be added to the structures being printed.
Ultimately, this breakthrough could lead to the creation of implants that actually mimic the bone itself.
