Stem Cell Therapy
Veterinary Wellness Center of Boerum Hill offers stem cell therapy to help ease your dog or cat’s aging joints.
Stem cells have been utilized by veterinarians since 2003 to treat orthopedic cases. Innovation and improvements to the process have driven wider commercial appeal for the service. Stem cells are the body’s repair cells that have the potential to divide and differentiate into tissues such as skin, fat, muscle, bone, cartilage and nerves, among others.
What Can Be Treated with Stem Cells?
Typical patients have osteoarthritis (hip dysplasia, degenerative joint disease, calcifications, common degeneration, inflammation), soft tissue injuries (cruciate injuries, tears, ruptures, inflammation) or have needs related to the accelerated healing of fractures. If your pet is suffering from something different such as Atopic Dermatitis or Inflammatory Bowel Disease, your veterinarian will consult a team in order to consider stem cells as a treatment option.
What Results Have Dog Owners Reported?
Greater than 80% of dogs with arthritis have an improved quality of life.
