Our newest treatment for pet arthritis is Stem Cell Therapy. You may have heard of it being used in human medicine, but we now have that same opportunity in veterinary medicine.

Advanced stem cell therapy uses your pet’s own stem cells for treatment. This is called Autologous Therapy– when the stem cells come from your own body’s tissues. There are no ethical or moral concerns with the use of stem cells from one’s own body as these cells are adult and not embryonic. The advancement in technology is that we are merely utilizing the body’s own regenerative capabilities with our proprietary treatment.

Stem cells are powerful healing cells in your pet’s body that can become other types of cells.  There are many adult stem cells in fat tissue, however they are asleep. Stem Cell therapy allows your vet to isolate stem cells from your animal’s own (autologous) fat tissue, wake them up, and reintroduce them directly into damaged areas.  For example, in the case of arthritis, stem cells can become new cartilage cells and have natural anti-inflammatory properties thus reducing pain and increasing mobility.

Here’s what one of our own clients who had the PRP & Stem Cell Therapy procedure completed on 2 of her older German Shepherds, Keb & Eva.

“I am glad I did the Stem Cell for sure. Keb is and has always been a healthier dog than Eva. He has had very few medical issues and remains active and alert. He has a lot of arthritis in his knees and was in a great deal of pain for awhile. Right after the procedure, he was very sore for a couple of days but I think it improved his movement considerably. Now with the partial tear, we’ve had a bit of a setback but seems to be improving. He still climbs the stairs pretty easily. His pain is definitely  better.
Eva was diagnosed with an autoimmune issue when she was about 5 years old so she has been plagued with skin issues and knee problems too. She has shown some signs of dementia. Before I did the PRP and Stem Cell she was unable to climb stairs. My husband would carry her upstairs at night. She can now go up and down the stairs if she wants. She has a hard time getting up but I think she’s better. Who knows what she would be like if we had not done the stem cell. So I truly think that it has improved her quality of life. She goes on walks and swims in the pond and seems pretty happy. She’s just getting old.”
