Stem cell therapy: Solution for pets in pain

Have you heard about stem cell therapy? It is a revolutionary treatment for arthritic dogs that help them get comfortable again.

The treatment had been used with great success in horses for years but more and more veterinarians are adding the patented Vet-Stem Regenerative Cell therapy to their medical bag of tricks. Other veterinarians say that the the theory behind the treatment is that the stem cells can increase the body's ability to decrease inflammation, helping the injured tissues to regenerate.

The procedure involves surgery to remove fat cells from the animal, and then shipping the cells to Vet-Stem for removal of the stem cells. The cells are then sent back to the vet, ready to inject into the creaking joints of arthritic canines.

Heartland Animal Hospital in Spartanburg County is the first animal hospital in the Upstate to offer the entire procedure in-house.

The said therapy cost is steep: $3,500 to $4,000, but pet owners increasingly are willing to pay whatever it takes to keep their pets, healthy, happy and alive.
