At Intermountain Pet Hospital, we strive to be leaders in the field of veterinary medicine. For that reason, we are proud to offer Stem Cell Therapy for our clients' pets. This innovative treatment option gives us the ability to relieve your animals' pain and heal their injuries more effectively.
Stem Cell Therapy involves taking tissue from a healthy section of an animal's body and applying them to an area damaged by injury or disease. The healthy tissue helps the damaged tissue regenerate, which reduces pain to that area and allows it to function properly. Since this treatment uses cells from the animal's own body, there is very little risk of adverse reactions and no risk of rejection.
Pets may qualify for Stem Cell Therapy if they suffer from any of the following conditions:
A similar treatment option to Stem Cell Therapy is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. Like stem cells, PRP stimulate healing in the body. We can harvest and isolate platelets and then inject it directly into a joint, which helps that joint repair itself. One of our veterinarians can help you determine which treatment option will work best for your pet.
