Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy
Is your pet reluctant to get up or jump into the car? Has your pet been less active, or does your senior pet just seem to be "getting old"? These symptoms are often caused by arthritis. Just like people, our dogs and cats suffer from arthritis due to past injuries or joint damage. VetStem harvests your pet's own stem cells for injection back to your pet which leads to decreased inflammation, decreased pain, decreased scarring, and increased healing. The goal with stem cell therapy is to stop ongoing joint damage and promote healing, which leads to a return to function and increased quality of life. A nice secondary effect is the decrease or elimination of the use of arthritis drugs which don't stop ongoing joint damage, may have side effects, and are usually less effective over time.
American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery
