Stem Cell Therapy

What are Vet-Stem Cells and what do they do?

Vet-Stem Cells:

  • Are derived from the animal's own fat
  • Contain high yield of mesenchymal stem cells
  • Contain many other regenerative cells that produce cytokines and growth factors
  • Able to differentiate into multiple cell types
  • Able to produce extracellular (structural) matrix
  • Available for treatment within 48 hours

What Can be Treated with Stem Cells?

  • Current uses include arthritis and soft tissue injuries (tendon and ligament)
  • Future uses may include treatment of kidney, liver, heart, and immune mediated diseases
  • Greater than 80% of dogs with arthritis have improved quality of life

Important Considerations

  • Cell culturing and banked dose processing and additional injections incur additional cost..
  • VetStem will store the StemInsure sample for one year at no charge. After one year the cost for storage of the StemInsure sample is only $50 per year.
  • VetStem believes there are certain applications where stem cells may not be appropriate. These include: Cancer and Systemic infection

How does the procedure work?

Your veterinarian collects a small amount of fat from your animal under local or general anesthesia. The fat is shipped overnight via FedEx to the Vet-Stem laboratory for processing, isolating, and concentrating of stem cells. The cells are then returned for implantation at the site of the injury or intravenously within 48 hours of collection.
