Animal Medical Center of Cascades and MediVet Biologics are proud to announce that we are now offering stem cell therapy for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia and other degenerative diseases.
This new state-of-the-art treatment is now being performed right here in Sterling, Virginia, and we are one of the only clinics in the entire state that offers this incredible and affordable technology!
Adipose derived stem cell therapy allows for an affordable and minimally invasive procedure to harvest adult stem cell cells from animals who are seeking pain relief. This technology does not involve embryonic stem cells. The procedure uses the animal’s own adult stem cells from fat tissue to heal and repair, therefore there are no ethical or FDA issues as the method is extremely safe. If you have pet insurance, some companies may cover up to 80% of the cost.
Regenerative medicine procedures for orthopedic conditions have recently been performed on popular human athletes. We now have the capabilities to offer the same kinds of services to our furry patients as well. Plasma and stem cell treatments allow for a natural process to speed healing time and reduce inflammation, improving general well-being of the patients. Now animal owners seeking affordable relief for their pets have a new cutting edge and affordable option in regenerative medicine.
Owners report improvements in range of motion and mobility in three to ten days. The stem cells will continue healing from weeks to months and the effects last a year or more. Depending on the extent of the joint injury and the age of the animal when they first receive regenerative medicine, some animals may need periodic treatment.
If you are interested in this cutting edge therapy please call Animal Medical Center of Cascades. We would be happy to have the opportunity to help your pet live a more comfortable, happy life!
