Stem Cell Therapy

The doctors and staff of Animal Hospital of West Port St. Lucie are trained and certified in every aspect of stem cell therapy. Stem cell therapy has proven to be an effective treatment for pain associated with osteoarthritis in dogs and cats. Stem cell therapy is a safe and simple process. First, we collect regenerative stem cells which are collected from your own pet’s abdominal fat and send to the VetStem laboratory for processing. These cells have the unique ability to mature in to cells with specialized functions which allows them to be used to repair certain body tissues that have been damaged by injury or disease. Stem cells can be used to repair tendons, ligaments, bone, cartilage, and even heart muscle and liver tissue.

We all cringe at the diagnosis of cancer and when cancer strikes our pets, it is no less stressful. Pet owners can be assured however that the use of chemotherapy to treat your pet is a viable and effective procedure. It’s important to note that pets have a history of responding to chemotherapy much differently than humans and side effects on your pet are minimal if at all. The doctors and staff of Animal Hospital of West Port St. Lucie are trained and certified in every aspect of chemotherapy treatments for your pet. Should your pet be diagnosed with cancer, the professionals at Animal Hospital of West Port St. Lucie stand ready to explain how anti-cancer chemotherapy can work to heal your pet and help you decide if this treatment is right for your pet.
