Stem cells are special cells produced within every body that aren’t genetically assigned to a specific purpose. When your body needs a specific type of cell, these stem cells can form and adapt to a range of applications. For example, a stem cell may turn into a brain cell, a muscle cell, or a specific cell for repairing damaged tissues.
Stem cell therapy is the process of using the pet's own stem cells to help boost your pet’s ability to heal. We use stem cell therapy in some instances where it can benefit pets— including osteoarthritis, bone, joint, and ligament injuries, spinal injuries, and even eye conditions like dry eye or stomatitis.
You’ve probably heard of acupuncture for humans, but what about acupuncture for our pets? It turns out that acupuncture, or the careful application of tiny needs to the skin, can be extremely beneficial in helping blood flow, inflammation reduction, pain reduction, and healing from injury in pets. These tiny needle pricks are virtually painless, and we find that many of our patients actually seem particularly relaxed during the procedure.
Acupuncture can be effective for animals when treating arthritis, nerve injury, disk disease, respiratory problems, skin problems such as allergic reactions, and gastrointestinal problems. It’s virtually painless, and many pets actually end up feeling very relaxed during the procedure. Acupuncture is also entirely safe when administered by one of our trained experts. Dr. Deb Clark, DVM, CVMA, is trained in veterinary acupuncture and provides acupuncture services to the clients at Animal Health Care Denver.
