Stem cells can be simply explained as your pet's own repair or replacement cells. Fat tissue contains many adult stem cells, but they remain dormant. We are able to harvest a sample of your pet's fat, isolate and activate the stem cells, and then directly re-inject them into degenerated or damaged areas. This is a way to promote healing and regeneration without (or reducing) surgery or medications.
A recent study published in Veterinary Practice News included 155 patients who suffered from moderate to severe osteoarthritis(joint degeneration). After 60 days, 98 percent showed improvement in the category of pain, with the decrease in pain perceived by 77%. Practice has shown that case selection and treatment instituted earlier helps improve the success rate. Obviously, severe bone or joint changes will be harder to provide comfort than more moderate cases.
