Stem Cell Therapy
Treat common chronic conditions.
Stem cell therapy is an innovative medical procedure that can be used to treat a number of diseases in pets. It’s most commonly used to treat arthritis and injuries to the ligaments, tendons, bones, joints, and spine.
How does stem cell therapy work?
Because stem cells are essentially blank slates that can be used to form any type of cell, they can regenerate damaged tissue in various parts of the body. At Western Veterinary Clinic, we use stem cells from your pet’s bone marrow for their treatment.
Once the stem cells are collected, they’re injected directly into the injured area. From there, they’ll gravitate to the damaged tissue, reduce pain and inflammation, and spur new tissue growth. Not all pets will benefit from stem cell therapy, but it’s generally safe and the risk of rejection is significantly reduced when the stem cells used come from that pet.
We are now offering same-day, in-clinic adult stem cell treatments developed by Ardent Animal Health. We have seen dramatic improvements in pain relief, range of motion, and overall quality of life for pets we have treated. In addition, it may also reduce the need for chronic medications.Please contact our office today to book a stem cell consultation as soon as possible by calling (574) 234-3098, or send us an email.
