Actistem therapy is a treatment option that uses your pets own stem cells to trigger and enhance healing, naturally.

Stem Cells are found circulating through the body and stored in tissue. When an injury incurs, the body signals for stem cells to activate and move to the injured site. Once Activated, they transform into damaged cells and can become muscle, blood, fat, bone, cartilage, heart or nerve cells.

ActiStem works in that the veterinarian extracts a concentrated amount of stem cells from your pet’s fat. They then activate the stem cells using Medivet Biologics patented ActiStem procedure and inject the stem cells directly into the area of the body that needs the healing. This accelerates what the body was already doing naturally but enhances the speed.

Stem Cells work immediately at reducing the inflammation in the area. Inflammation causes the pain. After the inflammation has been reduced they begin, transforming into the cells needed for repair. Similar to when you scrape the skin off your knee stem cells will naturally travel there and turn into the new skin needed. In osteoarthritis they are able to regenerate needed cartilage.
