Stem Cell Therapy

What if there were a natural way to use the body’s own internal healing mechanism to treat and manage certain degenerative conditions, such as arthritis? In fact, there is. The process of stem cell therapy does just that! Blue Ridge Animal Hospital is proud to offer in-clinic, adult stem cell therapy for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia and other degenerative diseases. We can help your loved one live a happier, more comfortable life.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Healthy adult stem cells are harvested from the fat in your pet’s body. Those healthy cells are then processed and reintroduced to problem areas, where they work to stimulate regeneration and repair damaged tissue. Since the stem cells used are from your pet’s own body, there’s almost no risk of rejection or adverse reaction.

What can stem cell therapy be used to treat?

The main purpose of stem cell therapy is to provide highly effective, long-term anti-inflammatory effects, which can help to manage certain chronic medical conditions, reducing the progression of the disease and healing tissue that has already been damaged. It results in relief from pain, improved mobility and restored range of motion for most pets, thereby improving overall quality of life.
