What it Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells are the basic building blocks of life, the cells upon which tissue grows and bodies are built. All animals have billions of adult stem cells lying dormant within their own bodies. The most potent and plentiful stem cells are located in the pet’s fat. The procedure begins with one of our experienced veterinarians removing a few grams of adipose tissue (fat) from the dog or cat. The dormant stem cells are then activated with MediVet-America’s patented LED technology
The activated stem cells are then injected into the treatment area of the patient. These activated stem cells are automatically attracted to damaged tissue. They go straight to work repairing and rebuilding anything out of place. Since they are the patient’s own cells, there is no chance of bodily rejection.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your pets own blood to accelerate the healing response in damaged tissues. In response to an injury or tissue damage, the body naturally directs platelets (clotting cells) and white blood cells from the blood to the injured area to initiate healing.
When a concentrated solution of platelets and white blood cells from the patient’s own blood is injected directly into injured tissue, the same healing response is stimulated, but in a more powerful and concentrated manner. By enhancing the body’s natural healing capacity, the treatment may lead to a faster, more efficient and more thorough restoration of the tissue.
