Stem cell therapy for dogs & cats can improve the quality of their life by reducing pain, increasing mobility and effectively giving your pet a new lease of life.
Stem cell therapy is also being used in other conditions, that we know less about, but are seeing some exciting results. We treat these other cases under ‘compassionate use’: degenerative myelopathy, feline gingivitis, allergies, auto-immune disease, pulmonary fibrosis, immune mediated haemolytic anaemia, atopy, and spinal trauma.
Look at what pet owners say
Tigga is so full of energy and the joy of living once again, it is marvellous. I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for Tigga…I recommend the Stem Cell procedure for arthritis with total conviction.
My cats have had six treatments of stem cells and are doing really well. The staff at Stem Cell Vet were amazing in every way. I would recommend the treatment and all the staff involved in this process.
It has been a privilege to see Stewart. He is very thorough in his investigations and listens to everything you tell him…Arnie has one more treatment left later this month and I am so grateful to Stewart and his team as I know Arnie would probably not be with me, if it wasn’t for Stewart.
Treatment has proved to be of enormous benefit. There is no difficulty in getting Amira mobile and her enthusiasm for running is quite amazing…Long may it continue. I am very happy to recommend Stem Cell Vet.
Stewart and his team have been fabulous in supporting Ollie and us through the treatment, which has significantly improved his mobility…and is clearly in a much more comfort. All of the team care and treat your loved ones as if they were their own.
Dudley is currently doing so much better than before. He is his usual lively self and seems happy and well…We have great peace of mind knowing that Stem Cell Vet are doing all they can for him. I highly recommend contacting them.
We immediately saw the difference. Stewart had a positive attitude and cared about the dog and not my credit card, unlike most of the other vets we had seen. We feel that Stewart has become a friend to us…our dog is now over 2 years old and we hope that with Stewart’s help she lives a lot longer.
3 steps to an improved quality of life
Get in touch now, by calling us or filing out the online form on our contact page, and we’ll call you back for a FREE telephone consultation to determine your pet’s potential suitability for treatment with Stem Cell Therapy and/or other regenerative therapies.
You and your pet will visit one of our clinics (in West London or Bruton, Somerset) for a FREE* consultation to discuss all your concerns and carry out a full clinical examination. We assess the current treatment protocol you have in place and make adjustments or recommendations so that we are happy that you have the benefit of all the most up to date therapies.
This assessment will look at the suitability of any or all conventional treatments. In many cases, the patients we see are being treated with some or all of these but are still struggling with their condition. In these cases we look at Stem Cell Therapy as an additional benefit.
* consultation fee is £120 but will be free for clients who proceed with treatment (£120 discount will be applied to subsequent treatment fees).
The procedure is carried out in one day as an outpatient, and patients generally do not need an overnight stay with us.
We need some blood tests for anesthetic safety. Once we are happy with these, we administer a short general anesthetic. Typically this lasts 30 to 90 minutes.
We need to take x-rays of the affected areas and also a chest x-ray. Where recent x-rays are available from your own vet, we will not need to repeat these.
We then harvest approximately 40 grams of fat from a site behind the shoulder or just inside the tummy. At this time we may inject Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into the affected joints. This reduces inflammation and pain in the joint and prepares it to receive stem cells, should they be required. Your pet is then woken from the anesthetic. There may be a few stitches that need to come out in 10 days.
The fat is processed in our lab to isolate, concentrate and activate stem cells and this takes 10-14 days. Once we have the healthy stem cells, we organise a second appointment for a sedative to allow us to inject the cells directly into the affected joints.
We’ll then book you follow up consultations at 30, 60 and 90 days.
We ask you to send us follow up videos and updates on a weekly basis so we can keep a close eye on progress. Where repeat visits are difficult because of travel distances, we can arrange telephone consultations.
