Stem cells are unspecialized cells that are capable of renewing themselves through cell division. Under certain conditions, they can become a specific tissue or organ cell. Stem cells serve as an internal repair system by replacing damaged tissues with healthy ones. Due to injury and/or age sometimes our own repair abilities can use a jump-start. Stem Cell Therapy allows your Veterinarian to use your pet’s own stem cells isolated from fat tissue in the body and apply this repair ability to areas of need. We use Stem Cell Therapy to treat osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, soft tissue injuries, degenerative joint disease and some other inflammatory diseases. We also have the ability to extract stem cells during a routine procedure such as a spay or neuter. The cells will then be banked for the lifetime of your pet and will be available when needed in the future.
