Steps to our process

1

The process starts with an examination by your Veterinarian

Your pet gets an exam to confirm it is a good candidate for stem cell therapy (preferably when your pet has NOT had any pain meds that would interfere with evaluation). Steroids and lasers are generally used as treatments but can affect the results of stem cell proliferation. STOP those treatments when possible prior to your blood draw and stem cell injection and discontinue for a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks after stem cell injection. NSAIDS are fine to use with the exception of EP4 antagonists such as Galliprant. If possible video record your pet walking, climbing stairs, rising in the morning, jumping into the car – anything causing discomfort. Make sure to send the videos to your vet and have the recordings with you for your exam.

Schedule a visit for a simple blood draw

Your pet comes in for a blood draw which takes, on average, approximately 15 minutes. The blood is packaged in special containers and shipped immediately to the laboratory for processing where the lab isolates the Stem cells and the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and activates the stem cells. The Lab then ships the activated Stem cells and PRP immediately back to the veterinarian’s office.
3

Next step is a scheduled visit to introduce the Stem Cells back into your pet

Usually within 2-3 days after the blood draw the Stem Cells will be injected back into your pet. Your pet comes in to have the stem cells injected where they will do the most good. Locations will vary based on the diagnoses from the veterinarian. You will receive directions for recovery.

Post treatment & recovery

You and your pet follow the physical therapy handout and repeat the videos once every 2 weeks so the veterinarian can see exactly what progress is happening after the treatment. The effects of the treatment are gradual and reach maximum effect after several months. Since this is a fairly simple and minimally invasive procedure for your pet, the treatment can be repeated if needed later on. You are encouraged to note any new behavior along with videos to share with your care provider.

Additional things to consider

Stem Cells are also not recommended in any animal that has any known malignancies.
