Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy for Dogs
Stem cell therapy offers several benefits for dogs, including reduced inflammation and pain, accelerated tissue healing, and improved joint function. It can aid in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis, tendon and ligament injuries, and certain autoimmune disorders. This regenerative therapy promotes a faster and more efficient recovery process, enhancing the overall quality of life for dogs suffering from various musculoskeletal ailments.
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 to not interfere with the healing process.
