There have been amazing advancements in stem cell therapy in the last ten years, especially in veterinary medicine.
All animals have stem cells in the blood, fat, and organs of their bodies. These stem cells are important because they repair and rebuild damaged and inflamed tissues. We are now able to harvest these cells, concentrate them, and then activate them to repair joints that have been damaged by arthritis. The stem cells stimulate new cell growth of cartilage within the joints.
Stem cell therapy is an excellent option for direct treatment of the source of damage and pain, rather than just treating the symptoms.
