VetStem Biopharma, Proudly Announces a New Long Term Partnership with VCA West Los Angeles in Support of Stem Cell Therapy Training and Clinical Opportunities.

Poway, CA (PRWEB) June 02, 2015

“Stem Cell Therapy to help dogs suffering from osteoarthritis joint pain is becoming more mainstream, and it is used often as an adjunct to surgery in large specialty and referral hospitals. Too many general practitioners are not yet aware or comfortable enough with the techniques to offer it widely to their clients. This therapy is most often reserved for the last resort cases - when nothing else works - and when the poor pet can barely lift a paw to get around. It is an easy procedure, and if a pet owner is willing to make the financial commitment (between $2,500 and $3,000) it is something that can be offered much earlier and in most general practice settings. We want to help our colleagues get comfortable with the science and the applications, so stem cell therapy doesn’t remain purely a ‘specialty hospital’ recommendation” stated Dr Nicole Buote, Head of Surgery at VCA West Los Angeles.

“We are very proud that an institution like VCA WLA has considered us as the premier partner for such an initiative. We work hard to develop new ways to help improve the quality of healing in pets, and attack insidious diseases like joint degeneration. It is great to be able to count on clinical experts such as Dr Buote and Dr Bruyette, to continuously challenge us, pushing us to develop faster and better, so we can help many pets in need” said Dr Harman, CEO and Chief Science Officer for VetStem.

“We hope to educate hundreds of LA veterinarians on the technique, and offer them local expertise and clinical support for difficult cases through this unique type of partnership with a state of the art veterinary teaching hospital. VCA WLA is developing a unique win / win relationship model with local area veterinarians. We are proud to be a conduit to such development, with our high quality stem cell therapy service offering”, added Dr Nahama, President and Chief Commercial Officer for VetStem.
