INFORMATION FOR PET OWNERS

In the United States, there are approximately 175 million pet dogs and cats. Sadly, 20% of canine pets suffer from Old dog smiling pain-free canine dysplasia arthritisosteoarthritis (OA), a chronic degenerative joint disease that affects the soft tissues and the bones, causing pain and decreased flexibility. The most commonly affected areas are the knees, hips, and elbows.

Many of these pets are started on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication, diet change, physical therapy and joint supplementation. NSAIDs can have unwanted long term side effects, and as OA progresses, patients can experience more pain and can become non-responsive to medication. If pain persists, more treatments or even a surgical intervention may be added to the treatment plan.

VetCell Therapeutics researchers have been studying treatment applications that are based on cells from dogs’ own tissue sources. Within dogs’ and other animals’ therapeutic cells can be found in major organs, fat, and circulating in the blood. These cells can be harvested, minimally processed and injected back into your pet. For example, therapeutic cells from adult canine fat can be injected into an affected joint (i.e. knee, hip, or elbow) to help reduce inflammation and pain, promote cartilage regeneration, restore mobility and improve their quality of life. Since these cells originate from the patient, there is no concern for rejection or transmitted diseases.
