MediVet's advanced stem cell therapy uses your pet's own fat to retrieve stem cells for treatment. This is called Autologous Therapy–when the stem cells come from your own body's tissues. There are no ethical or moral concerns with the use of stem cells from one's own body as these cells are adult and not embryonic. With MediVet's advancement in technology we are merely utilizing the body's own regenerative capabilities with our proprietary treatment.
Stem cells are powerful healing cells in your pet's body that can become other types of cells. There are many adult stem cells in fat tissue, however they are asleep. MediVet's Stem Cell therapy allows your vet to isolate stem cells from your animal's own (autologous) fat tissue, wake them up, and reintroduce them directly into damaged areas. For example, in the case of arthritis, stem cells can become new cartilage cells and have natural anti-inflammatory properties thus reducing pain and increasing mobility.
