Stem Cell Therapy


For some pets, stem cell therapy can help to regenerate cartilage and make joints damaged by osteoarthritis more comfortable. Stem cells are isolated from a sample of your pet's fat by a lab in San Diego. After being injected here at El Camino, the cells differentiate into cartilage for the joint.

Stem cell therapy is not a miracle cure, but it can be an effective way of treating a joint that is giving your pet great difficulty.
