How can Stem Cell Therapy help your pet?

Stem Cells are powerful healing cells that can turn into or differentiate into other types of cells. There are many stem cells in fat tissue, however, they are dormant (or sleeping).

Animal General’s therapy isolates these repair cells from your animal’s fat tissue, activates (or wakes) them, and reintroduces them directly into damaged areas of the body.

What is so great about our stem cell therapy?

Our Stem Cell Therapy targets the source of the problem by offering the ability to reduce inflammation, calm or modulate the immune system, and perhaps regenerate the damaged tissue. Other treatments, such as NSAIDs, merely attempt to reduce symptoms. The treatment is very low risk because it uses your animal’s own repair cells. It offers a biologic solution to a biologic problem such as degenerative arthritis from trauma or aging.

How long does it last?

This depends on your pet’s injury or disease. Some treatments can last a lifetime for a pet. In many cases owners elect to bank cells for future use in case another treatment is necessary.
