Pet Stem Cell Therapy

An innovative new field of medicine known as “regenerative medicine” aims to enhance and use the body’s natural capacity for self-healing. The use of multi-potent stem cells, which may differentiate into a variety of distinct cell types and may enable the repair, regeneration, and enhanced function of damaged or ill tissue, has received a lot of attention.

Over the past ten years, methods have been developed to make it easier to use autologous stem cells, or cells produced from a patient’s own adipose (fat) tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells are a type of adipose tissue cell. They could develop into tissues including bone, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage by differentiating into cells.

The harvested, concentrated, and purified stem cells are then injected directly into the body’s troubled areas. Cells can be gathered, processed, and cultured in a lab to multiply in number and be preserved for later use.

Osteoarthritis and tendon and ligament injuries are two conditions that stem cell treatment (SCT) is now being used to treat in veterinary medicine. Several institutes are currently conducting research to examine the potential application of stem cells in a variety of additional illnesses, such as immune-mediated disease and organ failure.

We are able to create platelet rich plasma (PRP) from a patient’s own blood in addition to SCT. High concentrations of growth factors and other compounds are present in PRP, creating an enriched environment that promotes healing.

PRP can be used alone as an autologous therapy to treat soft tissue and joint injuries, or it can be combined with SCT to improve the recruitment of stem cells to the target location.

How Does it Work?

Repair cells, which are present throughout our body, are the source of this ability. Repair cells are dispatched to diseased or injured tissues in an effort to repair the harm.

Sometimes our own mending mechanisms need a boost due to damage or ageing. This ability to mend can be used on damaged areas by isolating the pet’s own repair cells from body fat tissue.
