Introducing Stem Cell Therapy, we are leading the way to the future with this new initiative treatment for Osteoarthritis and many other conditions, using your pet’s own system to start the process.
1. BLOOD SAMPLE
First we would take a blood sample of 30mls from your pet, for smaller patients this can be done in stages.
2. FAT TISSUE HARVEST
Your pet will receive a General Anesthetic to allow us to harvest a tea spoon size of fat. We will shave and surgically prep the area, usually groin/ mammary area.
3. THE SURGERY
Surgery is done in a sterile theatre by the vet with a registered vet nurse monitoring the anaesthetic throughout. This should be a short procedure.
4. THE HARVEST
The sample is then placed in a special pot to preserve the fat cells. Both the fat cells and blood samples are carefully packaged and sent to the laboratory for special cleaning and separation of the stem cells.
