Escondido Veterinarians Offer Pet Stem Cell Therapy to Treat Pain

VCA Acacia Animal Hospital offers stem cell therapy for pets suffering with joint pain; hip dysplasia; arthritis; and tendon, ligament, or cartilage damage. This amazing treatment helps many animals suffering from degenerative and debilitating conditions.

How Stem Cell Therapy Works

Stem cell technology enables us to extract adult stem cells from your pet????????s own body fat, eliminating the risk of rejection or a negative reaction. Our on-site veterinary laboratory allows us to immediately extract the stem cells: once the fat cells are obtained, the stem cells are isolated in our lab and returned back to the animal????????s body. This procedure typically takes about 90 minutes, and your pet is returned to you in relative comfort.

Once implanted, stem cells have the ability to stimulate regeneration, reduce inflammation, and assist in the repair of damaged tissue. Pain relief can be expected within a few days to a few weeks. Pet owners then allow the patient to rest and increase activity gradually, to support the healing process.

Stem Cell Therapy for Your Companion Animal

Stem cell therapy harnesses your pet????????s own healing power to aid in pain relief and the regenerative process. The primary use for this treatment is to reduce chronic inflammation and slow the progress of degenerative conditions.

Since stem cell therapy is a relatively new technology, many pet owners wonder if this extraordinary treatment might bring comfort to their suffering companion. We are pleased to offer a consultation regarding the appropriateness of stem cell therapy for your pet-simply contact our health center.
