Stem Cell Therapy: At our Franklin location we are able to collect Stem Cells from dogs and cats and process them to inject back into the patient. Stem Cell's are the body's own "repair" cells. They can be extremely effective for patients with chronic and acute issues, such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, joint cartilage damage, ligament damage, and damaged tendons. The process involves a surgical collection of the stem cells from the falciform fat that is formed near the belly button during gestation. They are then processed in our clinic for same day administration.
