Stem cell therapy has been proven to help with the pain of arthritis in pets because it decreases inflammation, regenerates damaged tissues, and restores range of motion. An owner survey showed that greater than 80% of dogs treated for osteoarthritis in one or more leg joints with Vet-Stem Regenerative Cell Therapy showed an improved quality of life. Dogs like Moose have a small amount of fat collected by their veterinarian, which is sent overnight to Vet-Stem’s lab. There, the fat is separated from the stem cells and injectable doses of concentrated stem cells are sent back to the veterinarian overnight. Within 48 hours Moose received injections in his arthritic joints and the healing process began.
