Stem Cell Therapy
What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem- Cell Therapy is included in an area of modern medicine known as regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine simply means that we use the body's own regenerative systems for protecting and repairing itself by inducing certain mechanisms.
Stem cells are the basic building blocks of life, the cells upon which tissue grows and bodies are built. Stem cells are the body's repair cells. They have the ability to divide and differentiate into many different types of cells based on where they are needed throughout the body.
Stems cells can divide and turn into tissues such as skin, fat, muscle, bone, cartilage, and nerve to name a few. Animal stem cell regenerative therapy can lengthen and rejuvenate the quality of life for adult dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, ligament and cartilage injuries, back injuries and similar ailments.
Ongoing research is targeting other once incurable diseases, and the preliminary results are very encouraging.
The treatment uses the animal's own stem cells from its fat to heal its body.
A Pet's Place of Clearwater is the first Hospital in the Pinellas County area to offer this therapy.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells simply explained are your animal's own repair cells. There are many adult stem cells in fat tissue, however they are dormant. MediVet's patented stem cell procedure allows your vet to isolate stem cells from your animal's own fat tissue, activate them, and re-inject them directly into the damaged areas all in one visit. The goal of this revolutionary procedure is to provide a potent anti-inflammatory effect promoting cartilage and other tissue regeneration ultimately creating a healthier joint environment. Most importantly, it's an all natural approach to healing without the adverse side effects and complications of drugs or surgery.
The advantages of using Medivet's technology is not only the affordability, but it's safe, non invasive, and drug free. There is no comparison, as MediVet stem cell therapy is the most logical cell therapy choice for treating osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, hip dysplasia, tendon, ligament, and bone injuries. MediVet's goal is to improve the quality of your pet's life, as we have done for the 1000's of animals we've treated.
Why fat you ask?
Because adult stem cells are highly concentrated in adipose tissue, and the procedure to harvest them from the patient is quicker and less invasive than a spay.
On procedure day, your vet will make a small incision and collect a small amount of fat (either in the belly or behind the shoulder blade). The sample is then carefully processed by a highly trained Veterinary Technician. After the cells have been isolated, then activated, they are ready for injection into the areas that need repair and administered intravenously.
After the procedure you will be able to take home your beloved pet later that same day. While your pet may feel better quite rapidly this is due to the natural potent anti-inflammatory ef fect these cells have.
That being said, we recommend that you leash restrict your pet for the first 30 days after the procedure, allowing these regenerative cells to promote the desired repair. Typically, significant improvement starts after only 3 weeks but impr ovement can continue long after the first procedure date. Although every case is different on average MediVet Veterinarians report 1-3 years of relief from a single injection when treating general mobility issues.
What makes our technology better?
MediVet Americas patented technology is able to acquire the most living stem cells of any company currently offering this technology, and more live cells, means better results.
MediVet even offers cryobanking of the cells for future treatments, or so cells can be harvested at the time of spaying or neutering and saved for later in life.
