Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy is a successful treatment for many tendon, ligament and joint ailments. Stem cells are the body’s own undeveloped cells that can change into any type of cell to aid in the healing process of damaged tissue.

The cells are collected from the horse’s own fat or bone marrow. The sample is then sent to a laboratory for processing, and then injected into the affected area for treatment. These cells will then grow into the correct type of tissue for the injured area to aid in the healing process.
