Beechnut Animal Hospital Begins Treating Arthritis with Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy is an exciting new method to treat degenerative joint disease (arthritis) in pets. A portion of a patients fat cells are surgically removed and then processed. The patient's own activated stem cells are then injected back into the pet intravenously or into a specific joint. Responses have been variable ranging from 3 months to 3 years. Pets who have difficulty walking often reach a level where they are active and playful once again.


Treating Pain and Healing Tissue with a Therapeutic Laser

One of the major advancements in veterinary medicine in the recent years has been the use of lasers at low levels to treat many disease conditions, particularly pain and inflammation. Particular wavelengths of light that penetrate deep into the tissue are administered to areas that have arthritis or damaged tissue. The pet feels nothing as the laser is applied. The laser stimulates ATP production and drives oxygen into cells which in turn stimulates healing, reduces inflammation and pain. Of the pets that use laser therapy to treat arthritis, about 1/3 are able to discontinue using pharmaceuticals following treatments. Wounds have been shown to heal at a rate of about 50% faster while at the same time alleviating pain.
