Stem Cell Therapy

Tipp City Veterinary Hospital and Wellness Center is now offering stem cell therapy also known as mesenchymal stromal therapy (MCS) to treat injured and arthritic patients. We know that 47% of American households own at least one dog. We also know another staggering statistic, that 80% of dogs over the age of 8 suffer with some form of arthritis.

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is a broad definition for innovative medical therapies that will enable the body to repair, replace, restore and regenerate damaged or diseased tissues.

Tipp Vet Hospital uses a concentrated form of autologous adipose-derived adult stem cells to treat both traumatic and degenerative diseases, including bowed tendons, ligament injuries, osteoarthritis, and osteochondral defects in horses, dogs and cats.

And since arthritis is not fatal, many pet owners spend thousands of dollars every year to alleviate the pain and improve their pet’s quality of life with drug therapy. But, what if you alleviate your pet’s pain through a minimally invasive procedure where they are treated with an injection of their own cells instead of more pills to crush up in their food?
This technology was introduced to small animal veterinarians in early 2008. That same year Dr Jim Mathias, Dr Nick Mathias and Dr Jacob Mathias became credentialed in the use of this new and exciting therapy.

Minimally Invasive – Quicker Recovery

We are very excited about this new treatment option. It is minimally invasive and has great potential for healing some of our more difficult cases. We collect 2 tablespoons of fat from the patients and send it to the lab where the cells are concentrated and sent back for treatment in 2 days.Dr. Jim Mathias

Put the Brakes on Degeneration

Degenerative conditions, such as arthritis and hip dysplasia which have been managed with pain relievers and joint protectors can now be treated with this new technology.

What is unique about this new treatment option is that it can actually promote new, healthy tissue formation where previously we were just trying to protect the damaged tissue and provide pain management. Also, we get the benefit of stem cell therapy without the chance of rejection because we are using the patent’s own cells.Dr. Nick Mathias
This technology avoids both the problems of rejection and the ethical concerns that many people consider when discussing stem cell therapy.

Because we are using the patient’s own cells and not embryonic stem cells, there are no ethical or moral concerns, we are simply using the patients own natural stem cells and helping the body use them. With this new technique, patients can have signs of progress within weeks with lasting effects. The process takes several days and is an outpatient procedure.Dr. Jacob Mathias

I called Tipp City Animal Hospital when I was concerned that my dog had an obstruction after eating two corn cobs. Dr. Jim agreed to see him right away (even though my dog was not a current patient). Each staff member we came in contact with was friendly and professional. When it was discovered that my pup needed surgery to remove the corn cob, Dr. Jim promptly performed the surgery and saved our pup’s life. I was called multiple times that day to receive updates on Charlie’s progress, and Dr. Jim called me immediately once the surgery was complete to let me know it was successful. I am so thankful for the quality care my pup received and the friendly, professional manner of each staff member. We will definitely be using Tipp City Animal Hospital for future vet care for our pets!

We love Tipp City Vets. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We absolutely appreciate the fact that the Veterinarians will take the time to call us to discuss any issues or concerns about our rabbit. They are also very knowledgeable when it comes to exotic pets. Their hours of operation are quite expansive. This is a definite plus. In addition to the pet-friendly atmosphere, the place is always neat and clean.

We absolutely LOVE Tipp City Vet! All of the staff are professional and friendly, always happy to see us and my girl, Ollie! I have been bringing Ollie here for care for about 2 years and always had a wonderful experience. They are thorough and make sure you feel at ease about your pet.
About two months ago, we started bringing my girl here for doggy daycare once or twice a week and she loves it! She has a chance to get all her Aussie energy out while I'm at work. She's always so happy when I pick her up!!
My family has also utilized their lodging services several times. You can board your pets separately or together. They offer extra play sessions, bathing, etc. And if you're still worried about your pet, you can text their lodging phone number and they will send you pictures of your pet! Great for nervous Dog Moms like me!
Can't say enough good things!

We love this vets office. We switched my dog over about 1-1 1/2 years ago and her care is the best it has ever been. The staff is so welcoming and informative. We see Dr. Jacob most of the time. We recently added to our dog family and they got us in right away because the new addition had some medical issues needing addressed. We were in the next day and got on a treatment plan and wellness package.
