Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy is one of the latest cutting-edge medical procedures available in treating arthritis in dogs and cats.
What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a very useful addition to conventional arthritis treatments that might not be effective enough in reducing pain and improving mobility. It is also another treatment option for patients that have had an adverse reaction to certain pain medications.
How do we use stem cell therapy?
The procedure is done under a GA and involves taking stem cells from the patient’s bone marrow or fat. The harvested stem cells are then injected into the arthritic joint. Stem cells are unspecialised cells that are renewing themselves through cell division, serving as an internal repair system. The injected stem cells cause regeneration within the joint resulting in increased mobility and decreased pain. This is why the treatment is often referred to as regenerative medicine.
