er our doctors collect adipose (fat) tissue from pets, our trained technicians process the stem cells in our on-site lab to increase viability and success rate. Then they will be injected into the pet’s affected sites by the doctors. In a randomized, double-blinded multi-center clinical trial, dogs with chronic osteoarthritis were either treated with stem cells isolated from fat (adipose) tissue or with placebo. The stem cell treated dogs’ lameness, range of motion, pain on manipulation, as well as their overall orthopaedic examination scores significantly improved over time and improved relative to placebo treated animals (ref: Veterinary Therapeutics, Vol. 8, No. 4, Winter 2007).
