Stem Cell and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy


Stem Cell Therapy

We now offer Regenerative Stem Cell Therapy. Now, it’s not like the scary stuff you see on the news with embryos. The stem cells used are from the patient getting the therapy. We use their own fat-derived stem cells. We harvest some fat from your pet (most have a little extra to spare, I know I do!), send it to VetStem and in 48 hours we have the concentrated cells to help repair damaged tissue. It is not a cure-all, if something is really messed up, it may help, but a pet may still need surgery or medications. It’s great for older pets, especially ones where surgery may not be an option due to multiple joints involved or other health issues. We are working with VetStem in San Diego.  Below is some information about the process. Please email or call us know if you have any questions. Click on the link below see more great information!

VetStem Stem Cell Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

This is less aggressive and expensive than Stem Cell therapy. It is performed as an outpatient procedure. The sample is collected the same day, processed and re-injected into the affected joint(s). This is great for both chronic arthritis and acute injuries. If a ligament is completely torn, surgery may be the only option. Feel free to give us a call or email to discuss your pet’s case.
