We’re committed to providing your cat or dog with cutting-edge treatments that can drastically improve their overall quality of life. Our all-natural stem cell regenerative therapy can alleviate pain and improve mobility in pets affected by age-related conditions or injuries.
How Does It Work?
As animals age, the healing power within their bodies declines, just as it does in humans. Age-related diseases and injuries can overwhelm this natural repair process, leading to pain, inflammation, and limited mobility. By harvesting stem cells stored in your pet’s fat, we can reintroduce large concentrations of active stem cells to an affected area, prompting a potent, anti-inflammatory effect and promoting cartilage and other tissue regeneration.
We can harvest stem cells when a condition is diagnosed, or we can collect them ahead of time — such as during a routine spay or neuter surgery — and store them cryogenically for future use. Storage fees are minimal, and many pet insurance plans offer coverage for stem cell therapy.
What Are the Benefits?
Stem cell therapy is a highly effective, all-natural approach to healing that produces very few side effects. Additionally, stem cell therapy offers the following benefits:
- Steroid Free
- Treats the source of the problem
- Dramatically reduces pain
- Significantly improves mobility
- Brief recovery time
- Fast relief (typically in just 2 weeks)
- Effects last 18-24 months or longer
What Are Its Applications?
At Westside Animal Hospital, we use stem cell therapy most often to treat arthritis and orthopedic injuries that aren’t severe enough to warrant surgery. Stem cell therapy can be used to treat a host of other conditions, including:
- Hip dysplasia
- Degenerative joint disease
- Cruciate injuries
- Atopic dermatitis
- Autoimmune diseases
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Renal disease
- Liver and kidney failure
