Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a category of platelet concentrate containing a supraphysiological concentration of platelets in a small volume of plasma. The present study was undertaken to analyze the global trends in canine PRP research and to gain a better understanding of the ongoing research trends. The literature search was performed using the Scopus database, and the extracted data was further analyzed in terms of different variables. The data was then visualized in the form of bar diagrams and bibliometric maps. The systematic search identified 125 documents published between 1975 and 2021 based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. A fluctuating increase was observed in total publications between 2003 and 2021, with the peak in 2018 indicating slow progress in the interest towards canine PRP research in the research community. The Research Support Foundation of the State of São Paulo funded the most studies in PRP research. In addition, the United States emerged as the most productive country and Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho as the most productive institute/university. The major findings of the top ten cited publications on canine PRP research are also discussed in this paper.
