MediVet America has set up a holding centre at the company’s Nicholasville, Ken., lab to freeze and store pet stem cells for future use. Clinical studies have shown the cells can be viable for decades.
The procedure extracts stem cells from the animal’s own fat tissue. The cells are then treated and used for aging dogs and cats struggling with arthritis or degenerative disease for several years, with good results.’
Dear readers, please do not fall for this very expensive fraud. There is currently no evidence – none at all, that this kind of stem cell therapy provides any therapeutic benefit whatsoever.
