Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Banking

The Integrative Veterinary Center of Richmond is excited to offer proactive stem cell banking for your pet during routine surgical procedures. Ardent Animal Health’s Bank Now Save Later program is a cost-effective way to ensure your pet can receive the most advanced care available when needed. 

By banking your pet’s cells today, you can take advantage of stem cell treatments in the future without the need for additional surgery. The process is simple: our doctors remove a small amount of fat tissue during a spay, neuter, or other surgery and send the sample to The Ardent lab to be processed and cryo-stored. 

Our veterinarians can utilize stem cell therapy to treat various conditions as your pet ages. Common age-related ailments that can be treated with stem cell therapy include: 

  • Arthritis 
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Joint injury

Other illnesses that can be treated with a pet’s banked stem cells include: 

  • IBD
  • Renal failure
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Ocular disease
  • Atopy
  • Degenerative myelopathy

Stem cell banking is a relatively small investment in your pet’s health that can pay off in a variety of significant ways throughout your pet’s life.
