What is Stem Cell Therapy for Pets?

Stem cell therapy may be effective in treating pets who have chronic pain or limited mobility that isn’t likely to heal fully. Some pets may not qualify for surgery to fix the underlying concerns. Because stem cell therapy is a limitedly invasive procedure, it may be the best solution for your pet’s needs.

Stem cells are a unique type of cell found within the body. These cells are special because they can transform into other cells to heal damaged tissue. Our goal is to extract those healthy stem cells from areas of the animal’s body where they are in large supply and then inject them into the problem area. Once there, the stem cells go to work rejuvenating the damaged tissue, healing it at a very fast and effective rate.

When Can Our Holistic Veterinarian Offer Stem Cell Therapy?

As a holistic veterinarian, when you come in to see our team, we’ll always offer the recommendation of stem cell therapy or other treatments that are the least invasive and most effective for your pet. This depends on the pet’s needs, of course. We use this type of therapy to treat a wide range of conditions including:

  • Chronic arthritis
  • Joint pain
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Cartilage damage
  • Tendon damage
  • Ligament damage
  • Kidney, liver, and autoimmune diseases
  • Allergies
  • Chronic illness that is unimproved from other treatments

Why Consider Stem Cell Therapy?

There are many benefits to using stem cell therapy for these or other conditions. It is non-invasive meaning your pet doesn’t have to go in for surgery to see the benefits. It is also more effective than other treatments in some animals. There is also no risk of rejection because the pet’s stem cells are used, not a foreign substance. And, this treatment has been shown to significantly reduce inflammation, reduce pain, and improve inflammation quickly.

If your pet is taking medications, struggling to walk, or has a poor quality of life but other treatment options have not worked, please visit our holistic veterinarian to learn more about this treatment option. Our animal hospital in Houston, Texas is available to you for all of your needs.

  • "I’ve been coming here for over 25 years and with over a dozen pups. I’ve moved 4 times and regardless of distance VMDAH is the only choice for me."
    Bob N.
  • "I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Crist and Veterans Memorial Drive Animal Hospital. I have NEVER been to a doctor (especially a veterinarian) who took a full hour to do an exam and history. I was so impressed with the time taken and genuine concern that Dr. Crist had for my kiddo. I am so happy that they provide alternatives to traditional veterinarian medicine like chiropractic, acupuncture and supplements. I highly recommend VMDAH!"
