Holistic Health Care Option: Pet Stem Cell Therapy for Pain Reduction in Dogs
This regenerative medicine for pets helps animals suffering from degenerative joint disease or arthritis, as well as tendon and ligament injuries. Maywood Veterinary Clinic offers stem cell therapy to dogs suffering from these debilitating conditions. These healing cells from your pet’s own fat tissue are proven to reduce pain in various tissue types including tendon, ligament, bone, cartilage, and muscle.
Stem cell technology enables veterinarians to extract adult stem cells from a pet's own body fat, virtually eliminating the risk of rejection or negative reaction. This holistic solution harnesses the pet's own healing power to aid in the pain relief process.

How It Works
Our clinic works with the Vet-Stem stem cell laboratory for overnight shipping. Once the fat cells have been procured from your pet, the stem cells are isolated and returned back into the body. In processing stem cells from fat tissue, the lab affords a 48-hour turnaround from cell collection, through the isolation process, to return for injection into the patient. During this process, some cells are also banked at the lab for future use.
Once implanted, stem cells have the ability to stimulate regeneration, reduce pain and inflammation, and assist in the repair of damaged tissue. They can also differentiate into other cell types such as tendon, cartilage, bone, and ligament, which may further aid the repair process.
Typically, pain relief can be expected within a few days to a few weeks. Pet owners are cautioned to gradually allow their pets to experience increased activity so as not to interfere with the healing process.
