Follow Friday Feature: @VetStem

Treatment for osteoarthritis in dogs (also known as just arthritis) has stepped into the 21st century, thanks to Vet-Stem! They are able to isolate stem cells from a dog’s fat, which a veterinarian can then inject into a dog’s painful, arthritic joints, and the result is regenerative medicine. Thanks to Vet-Stem, many dogs are moving more freely and are pain-free. Follow their posts on Twitter to read about what they’re up to. It’s truly an exciting time in veterinary medicine!

Our hospital has treated 4 patients with adult stem cells (including the first dog in the state of Kansas), thanks to Vet-Stem, and we have our 5th patient schedule for next week. Our website has more information about stem cell therapy, if you’re interested!
