Stem Cell Therapy

Southshore Animal Hospital is proud to offer stem cell therapy to our clients. Using stem cell therapy we are able to extract specialized stem cells from the fatty tissue of your pet and use them to treat a number of issues including: stimulating new tissue growth, reduce inflammation, treat orthopedic soft tissue injuries, and much more. Ask us how stem cell therapy may be able to help your pet today.

Is it safe?

Yes. Since the cells come from and are returned back to the same animal (autologous), there is almost no risk of rejection or reaction. Although the chance of post-treatment inflammation is minimal, the process of injecting a tendon or joint with any substance carries a risk that you should discuss with your veterinarian. Vet-Stem processes the cells in an aseptic environment and adds an antibiotic to the cell suspension before returning the cells for injection.
