Stem Cells and Your Pet

What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells have the ability to differentiate into any type of cell. They can also activate other surrounding stem cells and recruit additional cell types to aid in wound healing and tissue repair.

What’s involved in Stem Cell therapy?

A small amount of adipose tissue is collected while the dog is under general anesthesia. It is then processed using a specialized system that isolates and concentrates the stem cells. Once the processing is complete, the stem cells are then directly injected into the area of injury. If it is determined that your dog is a candidate for stem cell therapy, the doctors at Animotion Animal Rehabilitation Center can process and inject the stem cells during an office visit.

Seeing results from stem cell therapy?

As with PRP therapy, every dog’s response to therapy will be different. Most veterinarians have noticed that dogs with moderate to severe osteoarthritis will show marked improvement for more than a year with one treatment of stem cells. Follow our recommendations for rehabilitation and follow-up.
