Treating Your Beloved Pet with Stem Cell Therapy at Animal Clinic Of Council Bluffs and Glenwood Veterinary Clinic
If your pet is suffering from an illness or injury and you are looking for more options to improve the recovery process and perhaps even speed it up, stem cell therapy is something that you’ll want to consider. The use of stem cells is a fairly recent innovation that is helping humans as well as pets get back on the road to optimal health. People who are interested in pet stem cell therapy should know that we provide this service at both of our current locations, at Animal Clinic of Council Bluffs and at Glenwood Veterinary Clinic.
Overview of Stem Cells
Stem cells are a special type of cell that are not yet programmed to be a particular type, such as a blood cell, a skin cell or part of an internal organ. You can imagine them as blank slates, awaiting instructions on what to turn into.
This makes stem cells a powerful tool in healing humans as well as our animal companions. Your veterinarians can obtain stem cells from the pet’s blood plasma or even from its fat tissue. In some cases, the vet may recommend that the stem cells come from a stem cell bank rather than being harvested from your pet’s own body.
After separating the stem cells from other cells that are already differentiated (such as fat or blood), they are injected into your pet’s area of concern. For example, if there is pain in the joints from arthritis, the vet can inject stem cells directly into a joint, where they will start healing the affected area. The result is reduced pain and improved mobility.
