Hello Renovo Friends, this is Kelli, and today I'm here with Dr. Audrey Turbeville. Audrey, thank you so much for being with us.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Hey, thanks for having us again. I really love this product. Love doing things with y'all.Kelli Calabrese
Oh, well we love to interview you. You are so fun. You're fun to watch. We love seeing you, your team out there, just in the trenches, having fun while you're helping the animals.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Yes, we try. We try to have fun. I mean, work's no fun anyway, but you better make the best of it.Kelli Calabrese
I agree. Well, you're, you seem to be doing that. So you're at Top Gun Veterinary and you are in South Carolina. You have a new facility, which we're so excited and we know you've got lots of plans for things to come. Give us an idea of something that's coming up for you.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
So right now we've been doing a lot of lameness things and we are wanting to do, shoot a lot of venograms, which we want to incorporate that with Renovo and seeing if, they have limited blood supply on the foot, which can cause a lot of problems in growing the foot or it can make sure if the foot won't grow. So we're trying to see about hopefully getting paired up with Renovo. And trying to do that, growing and helping the blood vessels to grow better.
We've been doing a lot of things as far as suspensory ligaments, tears in ligaments so we've been doing a lot of those and having some great results. Really good results with that.Kelli Calabrese
Well, that's so great. We're, excited to hear more about it. You really have been a pioneer of sorts, entrusting this Renovo product, even though it's been in over 12,000 horses. You have really been just sort of leading the way and trying it in different cases. Can you share an example with us there?Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Well, there was one case that we did for care, Tinnitus on an eye. Nobody has done, I don't think anybody did anything with that. So we, stuck it in there and I injected it, Sub Conjunctively and then added it topically and then within I went and rechecked it about three weeks ago, cuz that was the earliest I could get back, and it's fine. And then that was a couple months ago, and then I actually went back, injected his hocks with Renovo as a prevention, because he's a, I think he was a 10 year old and she was fixing to really start working him heavy. So she wanted to do a prevention, which I love doing Renovo, more so as a prevention than your H A and your steroids because if we can stay away from the steroids this would be great. It's, so much better than injecting steroids every time we turn around.
So I went back and did his hocks for that and so we stained the eye to double check it. No stain uptake on was over the moon. Still excited. The horse has done really great. No draining, no anything, so she was really, impressed and really happy with the product.Kelli Calabrese
Wow, that's fantastic. So what have you seen in comparing the steroids to the Renovo? The difference.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Well, I see that the Renovo, of course, lasts longer and way longer better results, more more taking down inflammation and, the time span of how they act for a soreness and everything is like if you give it a good 24 hours, the tops I've seen three days, that you can see, they walk off better. They, move better within a short period of time.
I also like it because I've got one horse now. He is actually a three year old and he was injected at the beginning of this year with Renovo and, you know, we don't wanna put steroids in a three year old if we can prevent that, but he had ill joint when he was little, so we know that he has had cartilage damage and that hock, his hocks a little bigger than the other one. We're actually looking at, I think we did it at the beginning of this year. He's in another growth spurt and when he grows like that, he gets a little gimpy and then we inject it and it shows that he's fine. Like he does great for another six months and he's only three. I would've never dreamed of sticking a steroid in a three year old, but with this not being a steroid, it makes, it's a game changer for us. It's a huge game changer.Kelli Calabrese
That makes a lot of sense. What's another case you've used Renovo in that you were impressed by?Dr. Audrey Turbeville
One of the ones I did was an ear case for I think it was either sarcoidosis or squamous cell carcinoma. I hadn't had a chance to, we didn't biopsy because money was an issue, but we, injected this in a 30 year old mare and the ear is damaged. The cartilage is damaged, so the ear flops over. But the ear is, completely healed.
And where where it wasn't a possibility beforehand. And I've, I just injected another ear case on Thursday, and I actually sent the biopsy off to the lab and I'm, still, and it's still pending, so I'll, know exactly what I'm dealing with. And we already injected it with Renovo. And you are to see how it's healing up even since Thursday. Like it is closing up. Yeah. She's sending me daily pictures, so I'm trying to get that together and everything, but it's, amazing how since, what was that Thursday, Friday like days and it's already like almost closed.
Another big case. I know, I think we've talked about Petey before with the horse that has been cut since December of last year. He's probably got about a two and a half by two and a half wound on his foot that is almost completely closed up. He walks really like he should be playing since he severed all attendants in the back. He is completely pretty much pasture sound. The wound is healing fantastic. He is doing great. He gained all his muscle back around his croup area from where it was so atrophied like. He is doing phenomenal and the biggest thing is he's alive, Like he is alive right now, so, which is fantastic.Kelli Calabrese
Wow. I agree. Well, I know you've used it in a lot of cases, and obviously you've built a lot of trust in this product because of the results that you've seen. And now, would it be fair to say that you're choosing Renovo before some of the other traditional things where vets were sort of last resort.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Yes. Nowadays, like, you know, I, there was there was an arthritic case the other day. She went straight to Renovo. When I offered them to 'em, they asked me my opinion. I tell 'em yes, this is gonna, in the, you know in the long run this is gonna be better. It's gonna be less steroids in an animal longer with the product. You don't have to do it every six months like we did with the H A. I mean, every case is individually, of course, but the results that we're seeing in the how much or how less pain they're in within a matter of days, which is what is really the contributing factor to all these owners. The owners, they don't see their horses hurt.
And I can say, Hey, within three or four days a week at the top, you're gonna see him moving better. And, I have to remind them, don't ride them. You know, Just wait, don't ride 'em just cuz he is not lame at a walk, don't ride. And so, but yes, that I would pull this first than anything else right now that I have in my office.Kelli Calabrese
Wow. That's fantastic. We definitely appreciate that. So the Amnion is obviously the leading component in there. What would you say about the factors that make the Amnion work the way that it does?Dr. Audrey Turbeville
The leukocytes and the cytokines that's in there is, unbelievable of how it cleans up and decreases all the inflammation. And then it's the M C P, which is the mitogenic for the local pains that is phenomenal. And when I tell you, like I had one case where he fractured his hock, when we, when he brought him to me, we sedated him and then we injected him. Then he woke up, when I tell you I think he walked better when, like right afterwards, like, cuz he pivoted on that leg. I was like, everybody in that barn turned around, looked at me and like, did he just walk off better? And I was like, I really do believe in this product and I'm like, I know I won't like to, when I inject it, everything's fixed. You know? And that in reality is not the way it is, but the way it did the local pain right then, I could say, yes, it did that. And how quick turnaround I have for that. Owners are impressed. Hey, he's not limping anymore, and it. Four or five days, seven at the most, and that, that is what really sells the owner to know that their animals, you know, are not in pain. That is the biggest thing that owners wanna, know has, is he in pain?
Does he hurt? Can we make that stop? And I can tell them, yes, with confidence in that.Kelli Calabrese
Well that just speaks volumes that says so much. And you know, we know you're out there using this and you have not been afraid to use this product.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
No. We're where I am at, we don't have a refer in place. It's two hours away. I don't have that, My clients don't have that option. So a lot of things have to be done now. And so with this, it's a huge game changer for us. It's changing a lot. It's changing the lives here of the animals and, of the owners because they, know their animals aren't suffering anymore and that we can do something and something can be done now and they don't have to go traveling places and doing two, three hours away because that's, as close as we've got.Kelli Calabrese
I know sometimes money is, definitely an issue when it comes to these injuries. Have you seen any before and after images where you were able to see what the product did that you could.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Yes, I sure can. I'll be glad to send you all that. But yes, we have a lot of 'em, especially about the ear things. The eyes have been huge. The ligaments the suspensory tears, we've been able to do that before and after pictures. I, yes that. And that's what sells a lot of people. Are you sure this is gonna work? Are you sure this is gonna do it? You know and, knowing that every case is individually done, it's hard to say, Yes, this animal's gonna do this because it's just like us.
Some work on other things, some work, some don't work. But when you have constant, well, this is the one, here's another one, here's another case, here's another case. That when you have that, shows like the, consistency of this product that is working across the board for every animal, for every situation on those, you know, for that. And that's, amazing. And that sells the owner, like the product sells itself. Like as soon as I show pictures to 'em, they're sold.Kelli Calabrese
Well, that is fantastic. And we are absolutely all about saving time and money. And having the horses out of pain and all of the fabulous benefits that you have shared.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Yes. That, has been, Like I said, that's been the biggest thing and we are so grateful for Renovo partnering with us and letting us do this.Kelli Calabrese
Well, thank you for all that you're doing out there in the field. We appreciate you going out and sharing this with veterinarians who maybe have not heard of it, who have not yet built the trust that you have had. What would you say to those veterinarians who have not yet tried Renovo?Dr. Audrey Turbeville
If you have not tried this, you are missing out on a product that can change. Change it. It will change your life as a veterinarian, but it will change the animal. And that is the, that is what we all got in this for, is to stop suffering on an animal.
That's all of us got started because we wanted to help. We wanted to fix something. And if you're not trying this, you have really, are missing out and doing an injustice to some of these animals. You need to try it. You need to get on. You know, Just try it one time. Just one time. All it takes is one time and it will sell itself.Kelli Calabrese
Wow. And I know every case is probably different regarding a dose or the size of the dosage. Is there any recommendations you would have for a vet, maybe ordering, just to keep something in inventory because it comes frozen. It's good for weeks.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
At my clinic now, I keep one size of everyone, so that's one and a half, threes and fives and I just used a five the other day on one. So I mean, yes if you can do this and, if you have it, you need to be doing it and then have at least one size of each one of 'em, you will not be sorry and it will not sit there for eight, eight weeks. It won't.Kelli Calabrese
It can stay in a regular freezer for eight weeks.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Yes. And it won't, you will not have it in your refrigerator by eight weeks. I order from y'all every month.Kelli Calabrese
Excellent. Well, Dr. Audrey, we appreciate you and all you're doing to spread the good news about what's happening with Renovo. So we'll be catching up with you and looking forward to hearing about more cases.Dr. Audrey Turbeville
Thank you. Thank you again to Renovo for helping us.Kelli Calabrese
