Veterinary Stem Cell Therapy-An Option for Pain Relief for Pets in Southeastern Idaho

Stem Cell Therapy used as an option for pain relief and healing for dogs, cats and horses.  At the Alpine Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to being leaders in the veterinary profession.  We are now excited and proud to offer Stem Cell Therapy (Regenerative Medicine) to our clients as an option for pain relief and healing for pets.

What is Stem Cell Therapy? 

Stem cell and platelets are the bodys natural healing sources.  Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary approach to treating injuries and disease as it helps restore the normal structure and mechanical properties of the original tissue.  This helps us treat the problem, not just the symptoms.  Stem Cell Therapy promotes tissue healing through local secretion of growth factors which recruit stem cells from other tissues to the affected tissue to facilitate repair and healing.  The Stem Cells are not obtained from Embryonic Tissue but from Adipose (fat) tissue from the animal that is being treated.  Stem Cells are highly anti-inflammatory by nature and migrate to areas of inflammation, which substantially reduces pain.

Is my pet a candidate for Stem Cell Therapy?

Your pet may be a candidate for Stem Cell Therapy if they suffer from any of the following conditions:

1.      Chronic Arthritis

2.      Joint Pain

3.      Cartilage damage

4.      Tendon and Ligament Damage

5.      Hip Dysplasia

6.      A chronic illness that has not responded to traditional treatments.  (Kidney, Liver, or Autoimmune diseases, Allergies)

What is involved in Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Lab Equipment

Stem Cell Therapy can now be performed right here in our hospital.  Your pet comes in for the procedure and is ready to go home that same afternoon.  We give your pet a general anesthesia and make a small incision to obtain some adipose (fat tissue) from either the abdomen or shoulder area.  We suture the incision and recover your pet.  While your pet is resting the tissue sample is then taken to our own laboratory where it is put through a harvesting process so we can obtain the Stem Cells.  This process takes about 2-3 hours.  After the harvest process is complete we lightly sedate your pet if needed and inject these cells directly into the site of injury or disease.  The Stem Cells are also given intravenously so they can travel to all areas of inflammation throughout the body.

Why Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy can greatly improve your pets quality of life.  It is all natural, we are using your own pets cells, so there is no risk of rejection and very little risk of injection site reaction.  Stem Cell Therapy can help increase the range of motion in arthritic or injured pets, and also decrease pain and inflammation.  In many cases, owners have been able to stop or reduce the use of anti-inflammatory medications.  Owners generally report improvement in 3 days to 3 weeks and the effects from a single treatment can last for 1 to 3 years.
