Driven by a passion for the wellbeing of animals, Regenesis Vet™ makes use of cutting-edge technology and advanced scientific research to produce results-oriented veterinary products.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, Regenesis Vet™ was founded in 2018 by entrepreneur Alex Miszewski. A competitive showjumper with a love for horses, Alex was in her final year of high school when she cofounded her first successful company selling the world’s first orthotic for sports-horses. Two years later, while completing a Business Science Finance degree, Alex recruited the expertise of renowned expert veterinarians she worked with in the past and Regenesis Vet™ was founded.
Inspired by the injuries her own horse sustained during her show jumping career, Alex set out to build Regenesis Vet™ on the values of accessibility, affordability and hope.
When Alex’s horse suffered her near career-ending injury, she found herself in an unfortunate position she had seen many of her peers experience. From her experience with cutting-edge technology, she had seen how frustrating it could be for those who could not afford the available treatments but so badly needed it. Much of the available technology was not easily accessible, nor was it affordable. Concerned by the fact that there were so few affordable and practical long-term non-invasive regenerative options available, she set out to find a solution.
Her aim in starting Regenesis Vet™ was to help reduce the number of people succeeding her that ended up in a position where the solutions offered to them were inaccessible, unaffordable or impractical for long-term use. Based on these values of accessibility, affordability and hope that there is a different solution, Regenesis Vet™ was born.
With hard work and plenty of determination, Regenesis Vet™ developed the world’s first and only commercially available systemic regenerative equine treatment derived fully from a unique system of processing autologous blood. Subsequent to its development, the system has been worked on and is continuously being improved by leading biomedical scientists.
Regenesis Vet’s™ signature product, Regenesis Vet™ R.I.A.D™ (Recombinant Inflammatory Antagonist Diluent™), was inspired by the remarkable results generated by growth factor therapy- a treatment growing in popularity among injured athletes and those undergoing post-operative care. Growth factor therapy makes use of specific growth factors carefully extracted from the blood to stimulate healing and regeneration of injured or damaged tendons, ligaments and joints.
Thanks to the proprietary activation agent enzyme solution developed by Regenesis Vet™, the above can be achieved without damaging the desired growth factors. Once the process is complete, we are able to extract a concentrated serum which is rich in the targeted growth factors. The finished product promotes faster and better healing, a better immune response and quicker recovery after exercise. This FEI Legal and Jockey Club compliant treatment can be administered immediately or frozen for later use.
The serum offers a strong anti-inflammatory effect and is administered intravenously or injected into the muscle as per your vet’s recommendation. This works to speed up recovery, facilitate the healing process (after surgery or injury) and support tendon and cartilage repair. This ground-breaking treatment not only offers relief and a speedier recovery, but it also has the potential to prolong a horse’s show jumping or racing career, which often is cut short after injury.

Regenesis Vet™ is committed to the health and wellbeing of animals and continually strives to find better and more effective treatment solutions.
