Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats (and Bulldogs)
Stem cell therapy for arthritis in dogs and cats is a state of the art, non-pharmaceutical and therapeutic treatment modality. Stem cells are your pets own repair cells waiting to be called on when injury to your dog or cat’s joints occurs and as arthritis and joint wear and tear progresses.
Your pet’s stem cells are extracted from their fatty tissue, and processed with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into an injectable solution, which is then activated using LED Light technology. Following activation, those supercharged, highly concentrated stem cells are then injected directly into your dog or cat’s arthritic joints ready to start the repair and healing process. In addition to their anti-inflammatory and pain relief abilities your pet’s stem cells have the ability to divide and differentiate to muscle, bone and cartilage.
For nearly a decade, Dr. Kraemer has been a leading provider of this groundbreaking, regenerative therapy providing an alternative to the traditional treatment of arthritis and other medical conditions. Dr. Kraemer’s practice, Vet4HealthyPet Advanced Medical Care, is equipped an in-house stem cell laboratory which allows for it to be a same day procedure, minimizing cell death as well as additional visits for treatment administration required by other stem cell companies. Dr. Kraemer also offers cryobanking services which allows pet owners to bank additional treatments for future use as well as a low cost “Cryobanking your Pet’s Future Health program” for elective procedures like puppies and kittens spay and neuter.
Stem cell therapy for arthritis in dogs and cats has no serious side effects, no extensive recovery time, minimal discomfort and only a sort post op confinement requirement. The stem cells can be injected to multiple joints at once and treatments can be repeated months to years later by cryobanking additional treatments. Lastly, treating your pet’s arthritis and chronic pain with traditional drugs over extensive period of time can be expensive and unfortunately in some cases bring on unwanted, harmful, side effects.
Arthritis in cats and dogs is also commonly known as Osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease (DJD), is usually a painful medical condition. As with humans, the painful, inflamed, arthritic joint of your pet is a progressive, degenerative disease that worsens with time. Arthritis affects the smooth articular cartilage of your cat or dog’s joints. This cartilage is responsible for covering and protecting the bone in the joint and allows your pet’s joints to move and bend without pain. When the cartilage lining the joints becomes injured and worn down, the bone loses its protection. The now exposed articulating bone parts start rubbing against each other when your pet is in motion, causing inflammation and pain.
Chronic pain due to arthritis is a growing problem in older cats and dogs, unfortunately it is not uncommon for our arthritic pets to live in pain under diagnosed.
Many arthritic dog owners report to me that their pet is slowing down, limping, favoring a leg, unable to take long walks or play as they used to. Other changes in activity also include your pet’s inability to climb into a chair or bed and having difficulty getting upstairs or going downstairs. Often, pet owners of arthritic dogs will report that their pet is slow to get up but mobility improves as their pet begins move around throughout the day. However, for pet owners of cats, recognizing osteoarthritis of their beloved feline can present a challenge since arthritis in cats is much subtler.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Maintenance
Arthritis and arthritic pain can be eased and managed by weight management and weight loss. A balanced diet and daily activities are vital for a healthy muscle tone and for your pet’s range of motion. Cryobanking your pet’s stem cells while they are young during elective surgery like spay and neuter can provide them with a safe, inexpensive and effective “anti-arthritis”, pain relief alternative for years to come.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Rule of Thumb
Chronic Pain due to arthritis in dogs and cats is much more prevalent than we previously thought. Tragically, arthritis in pets is grossly and systemically under diagnosed. Many of our pets suffer from unnecessary and chronic arthritic pain. The earlier your dog or cat’s arthritis is treated, the better the prognosis.

Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Tip #6 Arthritic cats with chronic pain might need a litter box(s) that provides easy access. A cat that is starting to have “accidents” despite years of normal use of his/her litter box should be examined for arthritis in addition to the common cystitis.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Tip #7: Owners of arthritic dogs and cats should place their pet’s water and food dishes on accessible surfaces rather than high counter-tops such as the ground level of their home.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Tip #8: Dogs and cats who are otherwise active and energetic and appear to “age” and/or “slow down”, might be exhibiting pain due to arthritis. Remember, “age is not a disease”.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Tip #9: Elbows and hips are the most common effected joints in cats with osteoarthritis.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Tip #10: Arthritic cats often have more than just one joint affected therefor radiographs of all joints is recommended
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats Tip #11: The bed(s) of your arthritic dog and cat should be soft, thick and warm. Place your arthritic pet’s beds at multiple locations around the house and at ground level to avoid climbing or/and walking downstairs.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats warning #1: Dogs and cats suffering from arthritis and arthritic pain will generally display noticeable signs. These signs/symptoms include swollen joints, lameness, muscle disuse atrophy and limping.
Dr. Kraemer’s Stem Cell Therapy for Arthritis in Dogs and Cats warning #2: Some veterinarians recommend treating dogs and cats with advanced arthritis and arthritic pain with corticosteroids (Prednisone). These drugs may provide temporary pain relief but have potential long term adverse effects. There are safer, non-steroidal analgesic drugs for the management of your dog’s chronic arthritis and arthritic pain relief. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAID’s), are now also available for cats but only for short term use.
I’ve seen improvement every week since. Although the stem cell did not make Spoofy a younger dog…she is definitely a healthier old dog. She seems to be pain free, has a great appetite, loves car rides and can walk up to 1.25 miles at a time. I also noticed that 90 percent of the fatty cysts she had all over her body, including a larger mass on her side, completely disappeared.
I truly believe the stem cell treatments and Dr. Kraemer have given Spoofy that last hope we were looking for and a better quality of life.
Thank you!! Darcie Copeland”
