Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms living in the arteries of the lungs and occasionally in the right side of the heart of dogs, cats and other species of mammals, including wolves, foxes, ferrets, sea lions and (in rare instances) humans. Heartworms are classified as nematodes (roundworms) and are filarids, one of many species of roundworms. Dogs and cats of any age or breed are susceptible to infection.
Stem cells are multipotent and can differentiate into tendon, ligament, bone, cartilage, cardiac, nerve, muscle, blood vessels, fat, and liver tissue. The stromal fraction that is harvested from adipose (fat) tissue is a heterogeneous mixture of regenerative cells.
Vet-Stem regenerative medicine uses a concentrated from of autologous adipose-derived adult stem cells to treat traumatic and degenerative diseases, including osteoarthritis, tendons, ligaments, and osteochondral defects in horses, dogs and cats.
Ocala Veterinary Hospital has been performing regenerative cell therapy for years for various types of orthopedic issues and arthritis in small animals. Dr Osborne has received credentialing from Vet-Stem.
Stem cell therapy is one of the most advanced treatments veterinarians have in their arsenal to treat osteoarthritis, along with physical therapy, joint supplementation, and anti-inflammatories. The research has shown that greater then 80% of arthritic dogs have shown an improved quality of life.
When Vet-Stem began investigating the use of an animal’s own regenerative cells for healing tendon injuries and for easing the pain of osteoarthritis, this form of therapy was not a commonly accepted treatment modality. However, through Vet-Stem’s in-person and online Credentialing Course over 3,000 veterinarians in the U.S. and Canada have been educated regarding the benefits of helping the body to heal itself with stem cells.
