Client Education Night: Stem Cell Therapy
Stem Cell Therapy: Is My Pet a Candidate?
THURSDAY, JULY 13th 7PM-8PM by RSVP
Village Veterinary Medical Center and MediVet Biologics are proud to announce that we are now offering stem cell therapy for dogs and cats suffering from osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia and other degenerative diseases. This new state-of-the-art medicine is now being performed right here in Knoxville, TN!
Adipose derived stem cell therapy allows for an affordable and minimally invasive procedure to harvest adult stem cell cells from animals who are seeking pain relief. This technology does not involve embryonic stem cells. The procedure uses the animal’s own adult stem cells from fat tissue to heal and repair, therefore there are no ethical or FDA issues as the method is extremely safe. If you have pet insurance, some companies may cover up to 80% of the cost.
Owners report improvements in range of motion and mobility in three to ten days. The stem cells will continue healing from weeks to months and the effects last a year or more. Depending on the extent of the joint injury and the age of the animal when they first receive regenerative medicine, some animals may need periodic treatment.
Light snacks will provided for participants and a question and answer session will follow the presentation.
Call and RSVP your spot today to learn if your pet may benefit from Stem Cell Therapy. Space is limited so please call us at 865-966-8900 to reserve your spot today.
Clinical Trial Feline Arthritis Program
Mar 15, 2017
We are very excited to announce enrollment has begun for a new clinical trial for pain in arthritic cats! Pain in cats has been so difficult to address in the past, as they do not metabolize anti-inflammatory drugs in the same way as people and dogs. Therefore they cannot safely tolerate many of these medications. This exciting new treatment option has shown great results in dogs and people, and we are happy to bring this new technology to our feline friends.
Cats on the program will have blood work, exams and X-rays at no charge. There will be about 5 clinic visits from screening to program exit over about a 2 1/2 month time frame.
Call us to today to be included on the interest list. We will review medical records and then contact you to schedule a screening appointment if your kitty qualifies.

“The entire staff truly cares about the health and quality of life of their client’s pets... and the awareness of the feelings of the pet owner. In this day of awful or non-existent “customer service,” this Clinic proves daily that care and compassion can come naturally. One could not ask for more... ”
—Judy, Vonore, TN
“From the greeting you receive opening the double doors into the bright airy reception, to the detailed, kind compassionate care given to every animal and their humans, you will feel as if you have come home to your pet’s family.”
“The caliber of the medical staff is exceptional. Even going beyond the education and the experience of the staff is their philosophy of superior patient care. The staff treats our pets as they would their own.”
“I have complete confidence in the judgment of the veterinarians. They have gotten to know me and my feelings are considered when treatment options are presented with the final decision being mine.”
