StemInsure: The Stem Cell Insurance

Posted by Bob under Stem Cells, StemInsure

As responsible pet owners, we often seek ways to safeguard the health and well-being of our canine companions throughout their lives. We vaccinate them as puppies and put them on high quality diets and supplements to keep them as healthy as possible. We invest in pet insurance to ensure they receive the best care possible. But what if there was another way to help insure your dog’s future?

The VetStem StemInsure is a cutting-edge service that harnesses the power of stem cells for potential future use. StemInsure allows pet owners to store a sample of their pet’s own stem cells while they are still healthy. This proactive approach holds the key to unlocking a myriad of health benefits and addressing potential challenges that may arise later in their lives.

Stem cells are the body’s natural healing cells. They can reduce inflammation, pain, and even lead to tissue regeneration. Storing these cells when your dog is young serves as a strategic investment in their future health. Young dogs typically possess a higher concentration of robust and healthy stem cells, making the preservation process more effective. This bank of youthful stem cells can be a valuable resource for addressing a wide range of health issues that may emerge as your dog ages, from joint problems to degenerative conditions.

Furthermore, the act of storing stem cells early in your dog’s life provides a unique opportunity to customize and personalize their healthcare journey. As each dog is an individual with its own genetic makeup and predispositions, having a bank of their own stem cells allows veterinarians to tailor treatment plans specifically to your furry friend. This targeted approach can lead to more effective outcomes, whether the need arises for regenerative therapy due to injury, surgery, or the management of chronic conditions.

Storing stem cells for your dog may help to ensure a healthier and happier life for your beloved pet. By securing this “stem cell insurance” while they are young, you are taking a proactive and personalized approach towards giving your dog the best possible chance at a vibrant and active life throughout the years.

The VetStem Canine StemInsure

Posted by Bob under Dog Stem Cells, StemInsure, VetStem

March 23rd was National Puppy Day. To help you celebrate, we thought we would share how puppies can benefit from VetStem Cell Therapy. That’s right, stem cell therapy is not just for older or injured dogs, it can help puppies too!

VetStem StemInsure: The Stem Cell Insurance

VetStem offers a service called StemInsure. Similar to storing your baby’s stem cells at birth, the canine StemInsure provides peace of mind with banked stem cells that can be used later in life should your dog require them. Hence why we like to think of it as stem cell “insurance.” While many owners take advantage of this service for their young, healthy dogs, older dogs have benefitted from StemInsure as well.

What is the StemInsure Process?

The StemInsure process is similar to our standard stem cell process where we extract stem cells out of a small amount of fat from your furry friend. This small sample of cells can be stored for the lifetime of your dog and can be used to culture, or grow, therapeutic stem cell doses should your dog become sick or injured later in life. While many dogs can benefit from StemInsure, this process is ideal for large breed puppies and other breeds that are considered high risk for developing orthopedic diseases as they age.

Benefits of StemInsure

StemInsure comes with several advantages. First, the fat tissue can be collected in conjunction with an already scheduled, routine procedure such as a spay or neuter. While performing the routine procedure, your veterinarian will simply collect a small amount of fat from your dog and send it to our laboratory to be processed. If your dog requires stem cell therapy in the future, he/she won’t need to go through an additional fat collection procedure.

Another benefit of StemInsure is the price. The StemInsure process costs considerably less than our standard process. Because there are no therapeutic doses being sent for immediate treatment, the stem cell processing is much less intensive. Additionally, StemInsure cell banking is a bit cheaper than standard stem cell banking.
