Stem Cell Therapy for Pets
Companion Animal Hospital River North offers a wide variety of healing treatments for pets, including stem cell therapy. Stem cells are cells that can be harvested from your pet's own tissues; most commonly, we harvest from adipose (fat) tissue. These cells are then processed to concentrate the stem cells. Once processed, your veterinarian can inject the stem cells into the affected area.
Stem cell therapy gives us the opportunity to harvest stem cells so they can grow into replacements for injured or diseased cells. Stem cells can also be banked for future needs and usage.
