Harnessing the Technology of
Stem Cell Therapy for Pets
Stem cell therapy for pets is a new treatment that utilizes the body’s own cells to treat certain conditions. Few small animal veterinarians offer this innovative treatment, but at Arab Veterinary Hospital, we’ve invested in the technology and training to be able to bring stem cell therapy to pets of our area encompassing Blountsville, Guntersville, Cullman and beyond. Pet stem cell therapy can give your pet a second chance at a pain-free, fully mobile life.
Conditions Treated by Stem Cell Therapy
The most common issues treated with pet stem cell therapy include:
- Degenerative joint disease
- Hip dysplasia
- Injuries to the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and spinal cord
- …and more!
Other conditions are also beginning to see positive results from pet stem cell therapy, though the research is less conclusive. These include:
- Feline gingivitis
- Liver and kidney failure
- Renal disease
- Spine trauma
- Pulmonary fibrosis
- …and more!
How Stem Cell Therapy Works
There are no ethical or moral dilemmas involved in stem cell therapy for pets. We use your pet’s own stem cells that are found in high concentration in fat cells. With a procedure requiring general anesthesia, we create an incision and remove some fat cells. Then, we separate the stem cells out, activate them, and inject them into your pet’s problem area. Stem cells are powerful building blocks that can morph into any role they are needed. For instance, when your pet receives stem cells in an area affected by arthritis, the stem cells will likely transform into new cartilage, easing the inflammation caused by bone-to-bone friction.

"Took my goat in for an exam. Dr. Harney took his time and held a real conversion with me about his health. I feel some doctors just scan over your animal then tell you do this thing. But Dr. Harney took time to go over options and testing and treatments. 10/10 will recommend." - Elise R.
"The place is gorgeous! I could hang out on their porch swings all afternoon, but the love and care of the staff far exceed all of their beautiful decor and furnishings! We love the Browns!" - Melissa C.
"Excellent facility, excellent Veterinarians and staff. I would not take my pets to any other veterinary practice. Thank you Dr. Brown and Dr. Zeiger and everyone at Arab Veterinary Hospital for making a trip to the vet both informative and friendly!" - Charlie H.
"We brought our dachshund Emily in just before New Year’s for emergency care because she was unable to move her left side. Dr. Zeiger helped guide us in choosing an appropriate medical plan and a therapeutic response interval. The third day, we began to see the improvement he had hoped for. She continues to improve and now only has a slight limp. I want to thank him for his insightful care and compassion during a difficult time for our family. His love for animals was evident that day and very much appreciated. We are so very thankful he was available." - Nikki B
