Animal House Veterinary Hospital strives to provide the latest in medical treatment for your pet. We are proud to offer pet stem cell therapy, a technologically advanced treatment for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis and joint, or tendon disease.
How Does Pet Stem Cell Therapy Work?
This procedure requires the collection of fat cells from your own pet. The cells are spun in a centrifuge to allow for the gathering of the most beneficial regenerative stem cells. The stem cells are placed into the affect joint or tendon, where they regenerate into new tissue. This procedure has demonstrated success in the control of pain and improved joint function in dogs and cats.
