Stem Cells Help Dogs With Arthritis

Veterinarians across the country can treat arthritis and other diseases in dogs using stem-cell regenerative therapy.

Previously limited to the treatment of horses, veterinary regenerative medicine now expands its commercial use to dogs, according to Vet-Stem, Inc.

In regenerative and stem cell medicine, veterinarians isolate regenerative cells from a sample of the dog’s fat. These regenerative cells are then administered back to the dog. Regenerative stem cells are commercially approved to treat osteoarthritis, polyarthritis, tendonitis, desmitis, and fractures.
