MediVet America, a pioneer in Veterinary regenerative medicine has teamed up with VMCLI (http://www.vmcli.com) to bring adult stem cell therapy for companion animals to Long Island. "We are excited to bring on such a progressive group of Veterinarians," said Vice President of Sales Thomas Masterson. "With this partnership, many more referring hospitals in the area as well as pet owners seeking relief for their animals now have increased access to our technology."

MediVet America a Lexington, KY based corporation which now has coverage in over 26 countries and over 750 US accredited Veterinarians. The adipose (fat) derived stem cell kit allows for same day harvest and application of an animal’s own repair cells. "We are seeking a better quality of life," said MediVet Veterinarian Dr. Mike Hutchinson, a Pittsburgh PA based Veterinarian. Oftentimes, we encounter patients not responsive to what we have in our toolbox as Veterinarians. Stem Cells from fat hold promise to allow for increasing mobility and even some day we hope the chance at curing immune mediated diseases. "As Veterinarians our oath to do no harm fits within multi-modal therapies like stem cells and platelet rich plasma that allow the body in certain cases to heal itself." The difficulty is oftentimes Veterinarians see things come and go. Fortunately, MediVet has allowed its partner practices to suggest ongoing research projects to bring increased efficacy, continued learning experience and hands on access to veterinary regenerative medicine.“

In addition to the surgical team at VMCLI, owners seeking relief for dogs, cats and horses suffering from osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease and in certain cases cruciate injuries can find their local New York area clinics on the MediVet America website (http://www.medivet-america.com). One such Veterinarian, Dr. Brian Voynick of Randolph New Jersey has seen the results firsthand. “I have done more than 80 cases since August, 2010. Virtually all cases have shown some signs of improvement with the majority being very significant. Many clients comment that they are relieved that their pets are no longer in need of NSAIDS, steroids and other drugs. Clients also frequently comment on their observations of the dogs renewed “zest for life”.

The Procedure:
During the process accredited Veterinarians harvest 20-40 grams of fat tissue from the animal. This tissue is then processed onsite to isolate and activate millions of stromal cells which fat tissue provides a rich source. These cells are available for injection into the problem areas as well as intra-venously allowing the animal to go home that day. The majority of owners report improvement within the first two weeks after the therapy.

The procedure allows for a therapeutic advantage over traditional shipping methods which can also cost the owner up to two times the cost to access MediVet in-clinic therapy.
