How It 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.
