Stem Cell Therapy for Dogs & Cats

Results you can see

Does your dog or cat suffer from arthritis, hip dysplasia or ligament/cartilage damage? These conditions no longer have to cause your pet pain. Adipose stem cell therapy is a progressive new treatment that only uses adult stem cells, not the controversial embryonic stem cells of the past. Adipose (adult) stem cells are harvested from the pet’s own fat. This treatment is permanently changing the world of veterinary medicine. We are proudly leading the way in Central Florida.

To speak with our dedicated stem cell specialist, call (386) 748-4251.

Proven science

Stem cells are the basic building blocks of life, the cells upon which tissue grows and bodies are built. All animals have billions of adult stem cells lying dormant within their own bodies. The most potent and plentiful stem cells are located in the pet’s fat. The procedure begins with one of our experienced veterinarians removing a few grams of adipose tissue (fat) from the dog or cat. The dormant stem cells are then activated with MediVet-America’s patented LED technology

The activated stem cells are then injected into the treatment area of the patient. These activated stem cells are automatically attracted to damaged tissue. They go straight to work repairing and rebuilding anything out of place. Since they are the patient’s own cells, there is no chance of bodily rejection. To learn more technical information pertaining to how stem cell therapy works, set up a consultation with one of our expert veterinarians today.

care you can trust

For the first time ever, stem cell therapy is available at our veterinary hospitals as a same day, in-house treatment, which has increased its effectiveness and lowered the cost. This all-natural procedure now gives you a better option over spending thousands of dollars on pain medications, joint supplements and therapeutic diets. Even the most skeptical veterinarians have been blown away by the dramatic improvement we’ve witnessed. Severely arthritic dogs have shown restored mobility, increased flexibility and more youthful activity in just three to six weeks. Now your dog or cat can live a happy life without relying on a daily battery of arthritis and pain medications.





Free consultation

It is painful to watch your companion pet struggling to do things they used to love. Adult stem cell therapy is showing tremendously high success rates and is producing major improvements in pets with degenerative arthritis and hip dysplasia. If your pet has been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, has trouble running, difficulty getting up steps or jumping in the car, he or she might be a candidate for this life-changing procedure. Unfortunately, certain conditions such as cancer will disqualify the pet. If you think your pet may be a candidate, we will happily set up a free consultation with one of our experienced veterinarians.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What exactly are stem cells?
Stem cells are the body’s repair cells. They have the ability to divide and differentiate into many different types of cells based on where they are needed throughout the body. Stem cells can divide and turn into tissues such as skin, fat, muscle, bone, cartilage, and nerve to name a few. They even possess the ability to replicate into organs such as the heart, liver, intestines, pancreas, etc.
What are the different types of stem cells?
There are two basic types of stem cells; embryonic and somatic (adult). Embryonic stem cells are found in the placenta and embryo. These cells are called totipotent, which means they have the ability to reproduce into any mature cell type. While embryonic stem cells offer the greatest potential in healing, there are obviously moral and ethical concerns in harvesting these cells. We do NOT use embryonic stem cells!
The second type of stem cell is the adult stem cell. These stem cells are called multipotent, which means they can differentiate into closely related cell lines, but they are not capable of creating a complete organ. Adult stem cells are found in the bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat), skin, liver, blood vessels and neurons. Contrary to embryonic stem cells, there are no moral or ethical concerns in harvesting these cells, activating them, and reintroducing them back to the patient in areas where healing and regeneration is needed.
Why do we take the cells from adipose (fat) tissue?
Adult stem cells are highly concentrated in the fat tissue. There are 50 to 1,000 times more stem cells in the fat than the bone marrow. At this concentration, it is no longer necessary to culture the stem cells to acquire the necessary cell numbers to make a healing impact. The procedure to extract fat from the patient is much quicker and less invasive than a common spay. The stem cells are contained within a pool of cells in the fat termed the Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF). The SVF may impart anti-inflammatory effects, add bioactive peptides, and contribute to reformation and architectural organization. These benefits are lost once stem cells are cultured.
What can we do with the stem cells?
Adult stem cells are capable of dividing into many different cell types. With this capability, we can use them as a treatment for joint injuries, ligament and tendon damage, and fractured bones. Research and clinical trials currently support the use of stem cells in these conditions. Ongoing research is targeting other areas of the body for treatment and the preliminary results are very encouraging.
What makes MediVet’s technology better?
With our patented LED technology and by incorporating Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) – the same treatment used by many sports professionals, MediVet is able to acquire the most living stem cells of any company currently offering this technology. If your beloved pet is going to have to endure the surgical procedure, we want to make sure they are going to get the most out of it! MediVet also offers Cryobanking, where you can store extra cells from the procedure for future use.
How will the procedure work?
The veterinarian will safely anesthetize your pet and surgically remove a couple tablespoons of fat. This is a quick and simple procedure that is generally easier than performing a spay. They will then process the fat to remove the stem cells. Processing generally takes a couple of hours. After the stem cells have been collected, your pet will generally be sedated and the stem cells will be administered into the affected joints and/or into the bloodstream. It is important that you do not feed your pet the night before the procedure.
When will I see results?
We expect you to see results! While we know every animal is different and there are no guarantees, we have seen positive clinical improvement in 95% of the arthritic cases performed nationwide. Some owners have even reported seeing a difference in as little as a week! While quick results are possible, we expect you to begin seeing improvement within the first 90 days following treatment. Really bad arthritis may require multiple injections, so banking your extra cells is always a good idea.
Is this procedure safe?
As with any procedure that involves anesthesia, there is always a risk. However, the stem cells are coming from your pet and are being re-administered back to your pet. There is no risk of an allergic reaction. Rarely there might be a mild immune reaction in the injected joint that should subside within a day or two.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Pets

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your pets own blood to accelerate the healing response in damaged tissues. In response to an injury or tissue damage, the body naturally directs platelets (clotting cells) and white blood cells from the blood to the injured area to initiate healing.

When a concentrated solution of platelets and white blood cells from the patient’s own blood is injected directly into injured tissue, the same healing response is stimulated, but in a more powerful and concentrated manner. By enhancing the body’s natural healing capacity, the treatment may lead to a faster, more efficient and more thorough restoration of the tissue.

What conditions can be treated with PRP Therapy?
Tendonitis, Dental work, Ligament sprains or tears, Bursitis, Osteoarthritis, Hip dysplasia, Elbow dysplasia, Muscle tears, Surgical incisions, Spay/neuter incisions, Much more (essentially any healing process)
What is involved in PRP therapy?
The first step is to draw some blood. Then the blood is spun down in our laboratory and separated into red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. Your pet is then placed under a local or short general anesthesia and the platelet rich concentration is injected into the injured site(s).
Are PRP injections safe?
Research and clinical data has shown that PRP injections are extremely safe, with minimal risk for any adverse reaction or complication. There is no concern for rejection or disease transmission because; PRP is made up from your pet’s own blood.
How do I find out if PRP is right for my pet?
For most pets, this is a same day procedure. Following the initial injection, your pet may experience some soreness at the site of the treatment. Most pets can resume normal activity after a week—the recovery and rehabilitation instructions will be tailored to your pet’s needs and abilities.

If your pet has suffered a recent injury or is scheduled for a standard surgical procedure, he or she might be an excellent candidate for PRP treatment. Please book an appointment online or contact us at any one of our locations in
Deltona, Deland, South Daytona, Ormond Beach, Edgewater or Sanford.

Cold Laser Therapy for Pets

Newman Veterinary Centers is now offering laser therapy for dogs and cats. This powerful, pain-free and surgery free treatment uses modulated infrared rays to help reduce pain and speed up the healing process of inflamed or damaged tissues. Newman Veterinary Centers uses a class IV, low level, cold laser which is one of the safest and most effective lasers in the field.

What can laser therapy be used for?

  1. Arthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease)
  2. Back Pain (Intervertebral Disc Disease)
  3. Trauma (Skin, Muscle, Bone)
  4. Wounds (Trauma)
  5. Surgery (Incisions, Growth Removals, Bone Surgery)
  6. Inflammatory Conditions:
    • Acute or chronic otitis (Ear problems)
    • Anal Gland inflammation
    • Periodontitis (Gingivitis)
    • Hot Spots
    • Lick Granulomas
    • Idiopathic Cystitis – (Bladder Inflammation)
    • Sinusitis, Rhinitis (Nasal problems)




How do I find out if it’s
right for my pet?

If your cat or dog has limited mobility or suffers from chronic pain, laser therapy might help. Book an appointment online or call us to set up any appointment in either South Daytona (386)763-5208, Deltona (386)860-5335 or Deland (386)736-9711.




What happens when my
pet gets treated?

Each session takes ten to fifteen minutes, depending on the number of areas treated. The therapy is performed by one of Newman’s specially trained animal care technicians. You are welcome to stay with your pet during the treatment. The treatment is painless, so anesthesia is not required. For most patients, laser therapy does not require sedation. Pets may go home immediately after treatment.





How soon will my pet
feel pain relief?

Laser therapy is cumulative in nature; a series of visits is required to get the greatest benefit. In some cases however, improvement will be noticeable after the first visit! In general, the majority of patients will show greater comfort and improved mobility after the first visit and this will improve with each therapy session. The pets we have treated have all shown positive results. Often they are able to cut down or even eliminate pain medications like Rimadyl and Previcox. In most cases, the results have even been remarkable. (For a cat’s eye view of this treatment, you are invited to read Duchess’ story in the Newman blog.)

If your cat or dog has limited mobility or suffers from chronic pain, laser therapy might help.




WHAT IS COLD LASER THERAPY?

This non-invasive, massage-like therapy uses light wave technology to gently stimulate cells deep in the pet’s tissue. In short, it gently, yet powerfully speeds up the body’s own healing power.




What does cold laser
therapy feel like?

The treatment is entirely pain-free. The patient experiences a mild warmth or tingling sensation. Many pets find the sensation of laser therapy calming. The laser helps soothe their pain.




What are the side-effects?

Low level, cold laser therapy is one of the safest therapies available. Some of the disadvantages to it are the pain relief may not be immediate. Unlike, traditional pain medication that starts working immediately, your pet may need a few treatments to start noticing the full benefits of pain relief. Low level cold laser therapy takes a series of treatments, usually 8 to 30, depending on the severity and duration of the condition. Patients often have to return to the doctor for treatments at least 2 to 4 times per week.





How does laser therapy work, scientifically?

Infrared laser light interacts with tissues at a cellular level increasing the energy available to the individual cells. With more energy available, the cells are able to speed up the process of absorbing nutrients and flushing out waste products, thus accelerating the growth and healing of tissue. Exposure to laser light helps repair tendons, ligaments and muscles. Laser light also stimulates the development of fibroblasts, the building blocks of collagen. Collagen is an essential protein required to replace old tissue and repair tissue injuries. It’s helpful in treating tissue damaged from cuts, scratches, burns and surgery.
