You have probably heard of stem cell therapy before, but only for use on human patients. After years of seeing the reparative effects of this therapy on humans, our veterinarians now offer this treatment for pets. Stem cell therapy treatment may be prescribed for dogs, cats horses.
Stem cells are contained in the pet's body, specifically in the blood, adipose( fat) cell tissue, and bone marrow. With stem cell therapy, these stem cells are transferred the injured area via an injection. The cells trigger the tissue to repair itself, leading to repair and less pain. These injections can be performed on the spinal cord, tendons, joints, and bones.
Upon seeing your veterinarian in Casper for an exam and consultation, the vet will determine when to begin the therapy. The stem cells are found in your pets fat tissue.
The pet is not awake during this procedure, so they feel no pain or discomfort. Once the stem cells have been recovered from their fat, they can receive the stem cell injections the same day!
Any conditions in which the spinal cord, tendons, joints, and bones have been injured can be treated with stem cell therapy. Degenerative conditions are often more responsive to this innovative treatment.
