Stem Cell & Shockwave Therapy:
Ease Pet Pain & Begin Healing

Pet Stem Cell and Shockwave Therapy

The Animal Care and K-9 Rehabilitation Centers offer the most cutting-edge therapies for your pets, including regenerative stem cell therapy and healing shockwave therapy.

Stem Cell Therapy

We have become a national leader in regenerative stem cell therapy for pets. Stem cell therapy is a breakthrough in veterinary medicine, offering help for pets suffering from degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis.

Regenerative Medicine describes therapies that enable the body to repair, replace, restore, and regenerate damaged or diseased tissues. We have teamed up with Vet-Stem in providing your pets with their own natural healing cells to repair damaged tissues. These cells are capable of regenerating into a variety of tissue types, such as tendon, ligament, bone, and cartilage, providing pain relief in hip and elbow dysplasia and other degenerative conditions.

What Is the Process?

Stem cells are processed from your animal’s own fat. The process is as follows:

  • Day 1—Our veterinarian collects the fat cells from your pet.
  • Day 2—Vet Stem processes the fat to concentrate the stem cells.
  • Day 3—We inject the stem cells into the affected area.

Stem cell therapy reduces pain and inflammation, regenerates damaged tissue, and restores range of motion for an improved quality of life. Learn more from Vet-Stem.

Shockwave Therapy

In shockwave therapy, high energy sound waves stimulate cells and release healing growth factors in the body. This process reduces inflammation and swelling, increases blood flow, helps restore bone, and enhances wound healing. These sound waves release higher energy and result in deeper penetration than with ultrasound or laser therapy.

What Is the Process?

Average shockwave treatments take 10 minutes or less. Your pet is given a short-acting sedative to ensure comfort. We may shave or clip the area so the sound waves are not interrupted. We select the number of pulses for a specific area, apply the trode, and deliver the pulses.

It takes time for the biological responses to take effect and begin healing. Your pet should not take part in any strenuous or high-impact activity during this period. In many cases, a single treatment is sufficient for long-term healing, but we may recommend a second or third treatment a few weeks apart.

Shockwave therapy is a more affordable alternative to surgery or the long-term use of anti-inflammatory medications and requires fewer treatments than other therapies.

Best, most caring, most educational vist ever...I love this clean facility and fantastic staff. The doctors will go to the ends of the earth to find an answer to your Pet's problem!

This place is AMAZING!!! The Doctors, the staff... What an extraordinary team! Their expertise in the services they offer is incredible, anything that you need, they can take care of!

By far the best Vet we have seen! They remember me and my dog unlike many of the vets offices that I have visited just as frequently.

If I could give more than five stars to the staff at Animal Care Center ... I would! Dr. Pam and her staff are just amazing, which is something I hadn't seen with our previous Vet.

The best and most well-informed vet we've ever been to, we have more confidence in this team than anywhere else we've been. They did miracles for our big dog through the physical therapy and rehabilitation.

This clinic has some of the most high-tech treatment options available, right up to physical therapy for dogs! I have never been to a veterinarian that is as caring and concerned in my life, and I have been to MANY. I am a client for life!

I like that we always learn more about how to be better pet owners. Having had many vets over the past 20 years, I can say that the care for my pets, knowledge of and use of up to date procedures, friendly front desk staff and smart and kind vets make this an excellent place to get the best possible care for your pets.

I will never take my dogs anywhere else! All the doctors are down to earth and truly care about my pets. They have such a comfortable environment from the moment you walk in the front doors.

Dr. Pam is AMAZING and her colleagues and staff are some of the most wonderful caretakers for my furry kids. The atmosphere is welcome to animals and pets of all sizes and ages. I highly recommend the Animal Care Center.

I can't say enough good things about this clinic! The kindness and compassion they showed me far exceeded my expectations.
