If you’ve ever had a pet that has suffered from arthritis or other similar forms of discomfort, you probably wanted to do something to help ease their pain. While anti-inflammatory medications or acupuncture are great options, another possible form of treatment that is now available at Rockbrook Animal Clinic is stem cell regenerative therapy.
Stem cell therapy is used to improve the lives of pets with osteoarthritis, fractured bones, ligament and tendon damage, joint injuries and more. Unlike other forms of treatment for these issues, stem cell therapy can treat the cause of the problem, rather than just the symptoms that come along with your pets condition.
Stem cells are your pet’s own repair cells. With this procedure our veterinarians are able to isolate stem cells from your pet’s fat tissue and then once they are activated they are re-injected into the needed areas. The procedure is conducted in order to promote cartilage and tissue regeneration which will improve the health of your pet’s joints. Stem cell therapy may also help patients with other conditions such as kidney disease, severe allergies, liver disease and back or nerve injuries.
Rockbrook Animal Clinic is now offering stem cell regenerative therapy. For more information please go to: http://www.medivet-america.com/ or call us at 402-397-2424.
