Milan Area Animal Hospital and Ardent Animal Health (formally MediVet Biologics) are proud to announce that we are now offering stem cell therapy for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia and other degenerative diseases. This new state-of-the-art medicine is now being performed right here in Milan, Michigan, and we are one of only four clinics in the entire state that offers this incredible and affordable technology!
Adipose derived stem cell therapy allows for an affordable and minimally invasive procedure to harvest adult stem cell cells from animals who are seeking pain relief. This technology does not involve embryonic stem cells. The procedure uses the animal’s own adult stem cells from fat tissue to heal and repair, therefore there are no ethical or FDA issues as the method is extremely safe. If the pet owner has pet insurance, some companies may cover up to 80% of the cost.
Regenerative medicine procedures for orthopedic conditions have recently been performed on athletes such as New York Yankee’s pitcher Bartolo Colon and PGA golfer Tiger Woods. Plasma and stem cell treatments allow for a natural process to speed healing time and reduce inflammation, improving general well-being of the patients. Now, with the help of MediVet America, animal owners seeking affordable relief for their beloved pets have a new cutting edge & affordable option in regenerative medicine.
Owners report improvements in range of motion and mobility in three to ten days. The stem cells will continue healing from weeks to months and the effects last a year or more. Depending on the extent of the joint injury and the age of the animal when they first receive regenerative medicine, some animals may need periodic treatment.
