Osteoarthritis can be a debilitating condition for our small animal companions and can greatly affect their quality of life. We are often able to reduce the pain and discomfort associated with arthritis by adjusting diet and exercise routines, offering pain medications, and administering supplements to promote joint health. For some patients, however, these treatments prove to be inadequate. Vet-Stem regenerative cell therapy offers a non-surgical form of treatment that has been shown to greatly improve mobility and comfort for many arthritic pets. Ste m cells are aseptically harvested from the patient’s own body fat and, after a purification process, are directly injected into the affected joint(s). Stem cells may also be used to treat tendon and ligament injuries.
