Stem Cell Therapy

At Newkirk Family Veterinarians we use stem cell therapy to help promote healing, relieve pain and reduce inflammation in cats and dogs suffering from a variety of veterinary conditions including osteoarthritis.

The Process of Stem Cell Therapy in Pets

In stem cell therapy, stem cells are drawn from the fat, bone marrow, and umbilical cord blood of an animal of the same species as your pet, and used to help treat your animal companion.

Your veterinarian will inject the stem cells into the injured, diseased, or damaged area of your dog or cat's body. There the stem cells will be able to replace or help repair the damaged or dead tissues, reducing inflammation, alleviating pain, and promoting the growth of new tissues.

Stem Cell Therapy

What is stem cell therapy used to treat?

Veterinary stem cell therapy helps treat a range of conditions, diseases, or injuries in either cats or dogs some of the most common ones include:
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Damaged ligaments
  • Fractured bones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Liver and kidney disease
  • Oral disease in cats (stomatitis)

Is stem cell therapy right for your pet?

Sometimes it can be really hard to predict the final results of stem cell therapy. There are some situations where cats and dogs respond really well to stem cell treatment at first, but later relapse. However, in other situations, pets will display incredible improvements that have lasting results.

Our Egg Harbor Township veterinarians will determine your cat or dog's suitability for stem cell therapy based on the laboratory supplying the stem cells for the procedure and the age, breed, general health, previous treatment and response history, severity, and duration of your companion's condition, and sedation risk of your pet.
