Surgery

Veterinary Regenerative Medicine is an innovative medical therapy that allows your pet’s body to repair and regenerate damaged or diseased tissues. Vet-Stem Regenerative Medicine utilizes a concentrated form of mature stem cells to treat degenerative diseases. Vet-Stem Regenerative Medicine has been used successfully for dogs, cats and horses. This can help treat medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, orthopedic soft tissue injuries, polyarthritis, and fractures.

How Does Vet-Stem Work?

We will collect a small sample of fat from your pet while they are safely under anesthesia. The Vet-Stem laboratory will process, isolate, and concentrate the stem cells, which are then returned to us to be applied to the site of injury, and sometimes used for intravenous therapy. In the case of fractures, treatment is recommended within the first 60 days to ensure optimal healing. Vet-Stem Regenerative Medicine can be applied to old tendon and ligament injuries, and have been proven to ease the symptoms of chronic arthritis.
