Stem cell therapy uses stem cells from your pet's body to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Stem cells have the unique ability to mature into cells with specialized functions, which makes them extremely valuable for repairing certain body tissues damaged by injury or disease.
Stem cell therapy is most commonly used to treat osteoarthritis in dogs and cats. Clinical research continues to explore other uses for stem cells, including repairing bone, ligament, and spinal cord injuries, and treating kidney and liver disease.
The decision to use stem cell therapy is based on your pet's specific condition, age, breed, previous treatment and response, severity and duration, and anesthesia/sedation risk. A full examination and consultation are necessary before proceeding with this innovative medical treatment.
