Dix Hills Animal Hospital and MediVet Biologics are proud to announce that we are now offering stem cell therapy for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, and other degenerative diseases. This new state-of-the-art medicine is now being performed right here in Huntington, NY and we are one of only 4 clinics on Long Island that offers this incredible and affordable technology!
Stem cells are the repair cells in the body. This all-natural therapy can lengthen and rejuvenate the quality of life of pets suffering from these diseases. The stem cells reduce inflammation and pain while helping to re-build bone, cartilage, and soft tissue. Adipose Stem Cell technology does not involve embryonic stem cells. The procedure uses the animal’s own adult stem cells from fat tissue to heal and repair, therefore the method is extremely safe.
Owners report improvements in range of motion and mobility in 3 to 10 days. Healing will continue from weeks to months and the benefits generally last 18 months or more without the need for pain medication or costly anti-inflammatories like Metacam or Rimadyl/Carprofen. The Stem Cell procedure has 94% customer satisfaction, 92% of owners see an improvement in a pet’s quality of life, and 92% of owners would recommend it to others.
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is blood plasma that contains concentrated amounts of platelets and growth factors. PRP is a non-surgical and advanced means of providing high doses of the body’s own healing factors directly to the area where they are needed.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a trending topic in human sports orthopedic medicine. Used for sports injuries as many wear and tear issues. MediVet’s Platelet Rich Plasma Kit, or PRP, is a breakthrough product for pets utilizing blood plasma with concentrated platelets that once activated accelerate the healing properties of the isolated growth factors at a fraction of the cost of traditional human treatments.
Platelets that are found in whole blood contain many healing growth factors and bioactive proteins. These bioactive proteins can initiate tissue healing, and assist with inflammation. The treatment offers an affordable all-natural alternative to drugs and steroids.
Medivet’s PRP Kit can be introduced topically in or around an injured joint, tendon, or used in its gel form to treat large burns or wounds. MediVet’s PRP is not limited to acute injuries and wound care, it can also be used for chronic conditions like Osteoarthritis & Tenosynovitis.
If you have pet insurance, some companies may cover a portion of the cost.
