In addition to other therapeutics, Dr. Summer. and Dr. Murray are both certified to perform advanced regenerative medicine therapies such as adipose stem cell and platelet rich plasma injections and infusions.

We have all this equipment in-house, and PRP injections can also be done without stem cells and the same day as the appointment. PRP is made from the patient’s own blood and can be injected into joints, intravenously, or into soft tissue. Stem cells are powerful healing cells in your body that can become other types of cells. There are many adult stem cells in fat tissue, however they are asleep.

Stem cell and PRP therapies are typically used to treat patients suffering from arthritis, intervertebral disc injuries, tendon and ligament injuries, and more. While those are the most common uses for stem cells and PRP, ‘compassionate use’ for other conditions has been performed: degenerative myelopathy, feline gingivitis, end-stage renal disease, liver and kidney failure, allergies, auto-immune conditions, inflammatory bowel disease, pulmonary fibrosis, IMHA, atopy, and others.

MediVet’s stem cell therapy allows us to isolate stem cells from your pet’s own fat tissue, wake them up, and reinject them directly into damaged areas. This process, from collection of fat under brief anesthetic procedure, to injection of cells takes approximately 3 hours from start to finish. We typically see 1-3 years of relief after initial treatment.

With one stem cell harvest, we can bank cells, so re-treatment is possible in the future- ( recommended every 6-12 months- we get an additional 2-3 treatments per harvest )
