Our hospital is certified in stem cell therapy, which is an advanced treatment performed by Dr. Landers. Stem cell therapy is primarily used for treatment of pain associated with osteoarthritis in dogs and cats.
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. We can use these cells as an effective therapy for the treatment of arthritis.
For the procedure, abdominal fat is harvested from the pet and then sent to the VetStem laboratory for processing. We then inject the processed stem cells into damaged joints to regenerate damaged tissues.
