Arthritis involves the breakdown of cartilage resulting in painful inflammation. Cartilage normally protects the joint, allowing for painless movement. Cartilage also absorbs shock when under pressure from daily activity. Without enough cartilage, the bones rub together, causing pain swelling and stiffness. Your pet may have joint inflammation from a variety of reasons, including:

  • Auto-immune disease
  • Past injuries
  • General ‘wear and tear’ on joints

How stem cells can help:

Because multi-potent stem cells can become cartilage they can fill in the damaged areas resulting in pain-free motion. In addition, MediVet America’s patented process involves processing the stem cells and mixing the cells with Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP when used,provides a strong anti-inflammatory element, which then in turn helps joint inflammation to decrease.
