For when they can no longer
The use of stem cell therapy for tissue repair and regeneration is revolutionising both human and veterinary medicine.
Culture-expanded, stromal cells are a specific form of stem cell therapy that have been used to treat lameness and joint disease in dogs and horses for almost ten years. The latest research indicates that these amazing cells can be used to significantly reduce clinical signs of osteoarthritis (OA) in dogs. The role in reducing arthritis pain is recognized by the World Small Animal Veterinary Association and they are included in the pain management protocol for OA in both dogs and cats.
At Cell Therapy Sciences we are utilizing the regenerative properties of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) to prepare clinical therapies for dogs and horses with arthritis and other joint disorders.
We have optimised our therapies keeping your pets - and your patients - in mind.
From a small piece of an animal's own tissue, many millions of regenerative cells can be cultured in our specialised VMD-authorised laboratory, using our research-based procedures, which are simple and practical for vets - and ensure the highest possible standards and quality for your pets.

Take a peek at Keeva and Erin's brave and beautiful story. Many thanks to their mum for producing this lovely short film.
Recognising signs that a dog is experiencing pain due to arthritis is very difficult; they are masters of hiding their pain - and all we may see is that they are slowing down or stiffing-up. This remarkable video from CAM reminds us we need to better understand pain if we are to improve and extend the lives of dogs suffering from arthritis.

Dr Jo Miller BSc(Hons) PhD
Jo has a PhD in Cell Biology, is a specialist in cell culture and has long been convinced that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapies have the potential to improve the lives of both large and small animals. Jo's in charge of our laboratories - and everything else at HQ ! If you want to know about your samples, need to talk to our cell culture scientists or simply to book in a new case, please contact Jo.
Dr Christine Parker BSc(Hons) PhD
Christine teamed up with Jo in early 2013, having spent many years developing human medicines. Christine is our clinical and technical advisor on stem cell procedures taking place in the veterinary clinics and knows all about " what to do , how do it and what to expect after treatment". If you have any questions about our procedures or the types of cases that can be helped by stem cells, please contact Christine.
