Pet stem cell therapy uses stem cells from the bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, or fat of either your pet or another animal of the same species to enable the body to repair, replace, restore and regenerate damaged or diseased tissues. The average duration for the treatment to take effect is 3-24 months with approximately 80% of patients to have slight to significant improvement.

What are Regenerative Stem Cells?
Regenerative Stem Cells are your own animal’s natural healing cells from fat tissue and are capable of differentiating into a variety of tissue types including tendon, ligament, bone, cartilage, and muscle and have been proven to reduce pain and inflammation.
Is Stem Cell Therapy right for my dog?
Stem cell therapy may be the solution for your pet if they have osteoarthritis, immune-mediated polyarthritis, or a tendon or ligament injury, and if your pet does not respond well to, or is not able to tolerate Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS).
