Stem Cell Therapy (Actistem Therapy)

STEM CELL THERAPY FOR ARTHRITIS IN DOGS AND PETS

What is Actistem Therapy?  Stem cells are powerful healing cells in your body that can become other types of cells. There are many adult stem cells in fat tissue, however they are asleep. Actistem therapy allows your vet to isolate stem cells from an animal’s own fat tissue, wake them up, and re-introduce the healing cells into the areas of need.

What’s so great about Actistem Therapy? Stem cells treat the source of the problem by oering the ability to become new tissue to replace damaged tissue. Other treatments, such as NSAIDs, merely attempt to reduce symptoms. The treatment is very low risk, because it uses the animal’s own stem cells. It offers an all-natural alternative to drugs and steroids. In a recent randomized sampling of 155 canines suffering from osteoarthritis > 95% showed improvements as reported by the treating Veterinarians

Is it safe? Yes, this procedure is very safe. On a typical dog, this is easier than a spay, and the fat is collected in about 15 minutes by your vet.
