    Default Stem Cell Therapy - from Dr. Kraemer

    Stem Cell Therapy is the future of Regenerative Medicine for Pets!

    Stem Cell Therapy is an excellent way to help your pet through difficult painful times that are induced by problems such as arthritis and hip dysplasia. Read below for helpful advice and information on this breakthrough therapy for your pet.
    What Are Stem Cells?
    Some stem cell facts : Stem cells are unspecialized cells. What this means is that stem cells sit in a state of preparation and from that state can become any type of cell that the body may need. This process happens through cell division and the reason stem cells are so special is because they can sit in a state of inactivity for a very long time and not lose the capability of renewal.


    Since they can develop into many type of body cell they can also work as a body repair system. Stem cell will continue to divide, replenish, and restore the body throughout the lifetime of that body. When a stem cell divides each division then has the potential to become a specialized cell or remain a stem cell with all of the future division potential. They are the body's way of creating constant renewal and healing for many of the body's systems.


    Stem cells can be introduced into a set of tissues or organs that need repair medically. This gives the body a chance to replace worn tissues and heal the damaged parts of the body. There are two types of stem cells embryonic stem cells and non-embryonic somatic stem cells. Scientists have studied with both types of stem cells and have used them from both animals and humans.

    What is stem cell therapy?

    Stem cells are being used to treat illness and heal injuries in pets. They are injected into the body to repair muscles, joints, and ligaments that have been damaged by arthritis or injury.


    We have now been treating a variety of medical conditions including Degenerative Myelopathy, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Kidney Disease and Spinal Injuries to mention few. In bulldogs we have noticed that patients who were treated with stem cell often showed improvements for other medical conditions like dry eye (KCS) and urinary incontinent.

    Thank you for sharing this, @harveyspecter. Finn had a f/u appt. today about his hip dysplasia and the vet mentioned stem cell therapy as a possible treatment of choice. After that appt. i felt discouraged and now that I see this post, i feel more optimistic. I was actually thinking of going to see Dr.Kramer too if Finn's hip pain worsens in the future.

    Great info, thanks @harveyspecter.

    I remember someone else mentioning this a while ago. I never forgot and spoke with Blues surgeon, the one who did Blue and Wellies soft palate and nare surgery. She's credentialed to do it and said if/when the time comes, and they'll be evaluated for it.
    Really hope that day never comes, but if it does, this is a wonderful option to have.

    Yes, Nitschke had bad knees and hips, not horrible, but as he was aging the arthritis was taking it's toll. So, in Feb/March of 2011 we scheduled the procedure, at that time it was two phases, both are surgeries. The first is to harvest the cells which are sent to the lab for processing and then the second is for the injections -- they have to be under because while the injection is taking place they can not move at all. Recovery was quick, and Nitschke was like a puppy for the next 7 months (when he past), eating, playing, running -- he was a very happy boy. If I remember correctly, it was about $2500.00... the lab stores the extra cells for free for 1 year and then you can opt to store them for a small annual fee for as long as you want.

    We talked about doing it for Banks but at the time and as far as I know, it was not tested/studied for the spine, which is where all her arthritis was contained, but if it was, I would have done it in a heartbeat.

    Here is my original post about it and I think it may have been my first post on the forum
