COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa, March 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MediVet stem cell therapy, offered at Animal Clinic of Council Bluffs and Glenwood Veterinary Clinic, provides pets and owners with a way to address health concerns in cats and dogs. Pet owners can address conditions such as arthritis, fracture, soft tissue damage and more with advanced stem cell therapy. The procedure and processing are done on-site and pets can return home the same day. Pet owners can improve the quality of life for aging or injured cats and dogs. Enjoy the companionship of beloved pets for years to come with stem cell therapy at Animal Clinic of Council Bluffs and Glenwood Veterinary Clinic.

MediVet offers an advanced stem cell therapy that uses a pet’s own stem cells for a session. This allows pet owners the ability to tap into a beloved pet’s own inherent ability to heal without ethical concerns. Dormant stem cells are separated from fat cells and once stimulated, can be reintroduced into damaged areas to facilitate the healing process. Stem cell therapy can benefit pets with arthritis, soft tissue damage, fractures, degenerative myelopathy, liver and kidney failure, auto-immune conditions and more.

There have not been any significant negative side-effects observed from thousands of animals that have been treated with MediVet’s stem cell therapy. This low-risk treatment has helped over 95 percent of animals show improvement. Aging pets can experience discomfort, arthritis, and degenerative joint disease. Stem cells taken from a pet and reintroduced do not result in a risk of rejection and activated stem cells can become any cell needed. Stem cell therapy can significantly improve the ability of a pet to move and reduce pain.

A vet places a pet under general anesthesia before collecting 2-4 tablespoons of fat. A highly trained vet tech processes the sample taken. It only takes approximately 20 minutes to collect the fat required. Stem cells are re-administered on site and the pet can go home the day of the procedure.

“We are pleased to offer pets and owners this advanced treatment that can facilitate the healing process for a range of health conditions,” said Dr. Melissa Harrer. “Stem cell therapy helps with arthritic symptoms and more and often improves mobility. Learn whether or not your pet is a candidate for this revolutionary procedure today.”
