PET NAME: AMOS
OWNER TESTIMONIAL: WE ADOPTED AMOS WHEN HE WAS 12 AND HE QUICKLY DEVELOPED STOMATITIS. WITH THIS CONDITION, HIS GUMS BECAME PAINFUL AND BLOODY. NONE OF THE STANDARD THERAPIES WORKED SO WE FACED THE DIFFICULT DECISION OF LETTING HIM GO OR SEEKING OUT AN ALTERNATIVE.
AMOS’S VETERINARIAN RECOMMENDED STEM CELL THERAPY, WHICH THANKFULLY WORKED LIKE A CHARM.
THANKS TO STEM CELL THERAPY AMOS IS NOW 17, VERY HEALTHY, ACTIVE AND HAPPY. WE ARE GRATEFUL TO HAVE BEEN GIVEN ANOTHER OPTION. AMOS NOW HAS CELLS THAT ARE BANKED IN STORAGE – WHICH CAN BE USED FOR FUTURE TREATMENT, JUST IN CASE.
What Is Stomatitis?
Feline Stomatitis is a painful inflammation of the oral cavity that is common in many cats. Essentially, the cat becomes allergic to her own teeth, causing ulcers to form in the mouth. Outward signs of this condition can include red and inflamed gums. In time the inflammation will spread to adjacent areas such as the back of the throat.
Traditional Treatment of Stomatitis
Feline Stomatitis is very difficult to treat, due to the fact that the exact cause is often unknown. The long list of treatment options can include antibiotics, supplements, diet modification and even tooth removal – this treatment is severe and should never be considered unless all other options have failed.
Stem Cell Therapy
Autologous Stem Cells (derived from the patient) are repair factories that are already present in the body. When isolated and concentrated in their first generation form they can be administered safely intravenously by a certified veterinarian. Stem Cells from adipose tissue (fat) provide a rich and easy to harvest source of autologous stem cells. These Stem Cells are being used and studied in feline stomatitis for their anti-inflammatory and immune-modulatory abilities.
