Equine stem cell therapy is helping horses with tendon and ligament injuries.
New medical research and improvements in technology are giving hope to horses that suffer from bowed tendons, an injury that typically puts an end to a race horse’s career.
Find out more in the FREE Stem Cell Therapy report.
This report will explain the research from studies coming from prestigious institutions such as Cornell University and leading researchers and experts such as Dr. Linda A. Dahlgren, an assistant professor at Virginia Tech University. Also, hear from Dr. Robert Harman, the veterinarian who founded and runs Vet-Stem Inc.
This report takes you through the following topics of stem cell therapy:
- What stem cells are
- Bone marrow stem cells
- Adipose stem cells
- Treatment and recovery of stem cell therapy
- Other uses for stem cell therapy
- Future of stem cell therapy
- Other options to stem cell therapy for horses
See for yourself, with detailed pictures, how stem cell therapy compares to traditional methods, such as saline treatments, in the healing process. Other pictures show harvesting of adipose stem cells and the injecting of stem cells into a tendon with the assistance of an ultrasound for guidance.

“It’s a very big misconception both in the medical community and the lay community that a stem cell just makes tissue. They recruit new cells into the area, produce growth factors and they manage the healing process in a very different manner than we thought five or 10 years ago,” Dr. Harman says.
Find out where different types of stem cell therapy are being used around the world and learn their status on becoming approved in the United States. Discover other leading companies such as VetCell Bioscience Ltd. and their contributions to this state-of-the-art medical treatment.
“It is the horse’s own tissue,” Dr. Harman says. “It is just moved around and concentrated where we want. It’s about as natural as you can get for the horse, so they usually have the opposite of a reaction to the inflamed area.”
Discover how stem cell therapy can also be applied to repairing and treating fractures, intra-articular joint therapy, arthritis and OCD (osteochondrosis dissecans).
“Rather than speeding the process, if we can just improve the healing process, we’re further ahead,” Dr. Dahlgren says. “If we can make the end product better, the tendon will be better able to hold up to the training process like a normal tendon.”
