My Perspective on Adipose Stem Cell and PRP Therapies

Okay, truth be told: I went to a lecture on stem cell and PRP therapies because I needed CE credits.  But I came away amazed at the applications for regenerative medicine!  According to Wikipedia, "regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the 'process of replacing, engineering or regenerating cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function.'"  Simply put, stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapies are cutting-edge, modern medicine and magic.  These therapies are proven to alleviate pain and improve range of motion in our arthritic pets.  I have seen the videos of pets treated with stem cells and their remarkable recoveries.  I have seen radiographs of arthritic joints before stem cell treatment and I have been amazed at how much improvement there is in the joint radiographically after stem cell treatment.

But more importantly, I have witnessed what stem cell therapy has done for my own pet, Bess.  Climbing stairs had become a chore for Bess.  She often required my help.  After being treated with Bess' own stem cells, derived from her fat cells, climbing stairs, hopping into the car are no longer a challenge for her.  Plus the sparkle is back in her eyes!

Stem cells and PRP therapies can be used for so much more than pain management!  Studies are currently in process for treating liver and kidney failure, allergies, auto immune disease, inflammatory bowel disease.  As more research is conducted by veterinary colleges, such as Purdue University and Kansas State University, the list of diseases and conditions that can be treated with stem cells and PRP is potentially endless!

Questions?....  Then what are you waiting for?  Let's do everything we can to help the pets that we love!
