Stem cell therapy helps many animals with tendon, ligament and joint injuries; in some cases, these injuries can lead to joint instability and degenerative joint disease. Stem cell therapy might be a treatment our veterinarians might recommend. Stem cells are harvested from your own pet’s fat cells, and then injected back into the affected area. They work to regenerate healthy tissue by signaling additional healing cells to the site. Stem cell therapy has led to significant improvement in the quality of many pet’s lives.
