We are certified by VetStem Biopharma for stem cell therapy. This type of treatment cultivates the patient's own fat cells, concentrates them at the lab, and then injects them back into the affected area.
This is a new, drug-free treatment for arthritis and other types of inflammation. Stem cells can differentiate and turn into multiple different types of tissues (fat, muscle, tendon, nerve, etc) to help decrease inflammation and pain. The cells are harvested from the abdominal fat of the patient and then returned either to a specific location (such as in a damaged joint) or into the entire body by IV injection for problems such as chronic kidney disease, inflammatory bowel disease, or stomatitis.
The Cat's Meow stays up to date on the latest in feline medicine. Stem Cell therapy has been used very successfully in horses and dogs for many years. It is now becoming a treatment for various disorders in cats and eliminates or decreases the need for long-term medications with potential side effects.
