LIBERTY LAKE, WA, December 20, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Spokane animal hospital and alternative health provider, Legacy Animal Medical Center, is a certified Vet-Stem Cell Therapy veterinary hospital. Vet-Stem Cell Therapy is a surgical procedure that has been proven to eliminate pain and discomfort in animals and can have positive lasting effects up to eighteen months. Over 8,000 animals have been treated with Vet-Stem to relieve arthritis in dogs and cats and relieve pain in tendons, ligaments, and joints in horses.
Stem cell therapy is an alternative option for pet owners whose pet does not respond well to traditional medicine and when surgery is not a recommended option by the veterinarian. Stem cell therapy has become a popular choice in recent years due the increased awareness and benefits of natural and holistic approaches in animal health and wellness.
Stem cells are collected from the fat cells of the animal, which is then processed to concentrate the stem cells and is immediately injected back into the animal in the affected area. The treatment requires two visits, two days apart to complete the procedure. Secondary injections in the future can be completed as any extra stem cells that were originally collected are stored whenever possible.
In a recent Vet-Stem survey, greater than 80% of dogs showed an improved quality of life according to their owners and their veterinarians and 85% of dog owners would recommend Vet-Stem Cell Therapy to other pet owners.
"Though stem cell therapy procedures aren't very common, the animals who have received this treatment at our facility have experienced great success with long-term pain relief," stated Dr. Meagan Bright.
Legacy Animal Medical Center has two veterinarians certified to complete the Vet-Stem Cell procedure on dogs and cats.
