If you are looking for a vet in Bunbury that is using the latest advancement in osteoarthritis treatment, you need to talk to the Australind Veterinary Hospital about stem cell therapy.
Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary breakthrough in the treatment of osteoarthritis in cats and dogs and also for early renal disease in cats.
Corky is one of our patients who has been bravely battling the crippling pain of osteoarthritis in his stifle (his knee). Total knee replacements in dogs is still in the pioneering stage of veterinary medicine so when pain killing medication is no longer controlling joint pain, there are limited options available……until now.
Stem cell therapy can bring rapid relief from the crippling pain of osteoarthritis in dogs.
Stem cells are repair cells in the body and there are many stored in fatty tissue. We remove these repair cells and mix them with platelets from the blood. Platelets contain growth factors that stimulate regeneration of damaged tissue. We harvest stem cells from fatty tissue, mix them with platelets and then activate them using a special light. The activated stem cells are then injected into any joints with arthritis.
Rapid results can be expected and often within 5 days after treatment.
Australind Vet is an award winning Bunbury veterinary clinic that can process stem cells in the hospital and the treatment can be done in a single day. We don’t have to send the fat cells to a lab to have the processing done. We do it in our hospital thanks to the revolutionary advances from Medivet stem cell technology.
Here is Corky who underwent his stem cell therapy at Australind Veterinary Hospital today.
