General Veterinary Care

Your pet doesn't just share a home with you. To you, they are truly family. And we understand how important it is to you to always be doing right by them. With general veterinary care, we'll have all of the basics covered. New puppy and kitten visits, adult and senior focused exams, visits when your pet is unwell or sick, regular preventive check ups, comfort exams, and more. And not only do we understand what your pet needs, our team of veterinarians and veterinary professionals have advanced training in your pet's medical needs. Here, you will receive the gold standard in medical care for your pet. Because we believe you shouldn't have to settle for anything less.

Dental and Oral Health

You love your pet like family. But many pet owners don't know how many pets are impacted by poor oral health. In fact, the majority of cats and dogs over the age of three show signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a progressive health condition that begins with plaque on your pet's teeth hardens and turns into tartar. As tartar makes its way beneath your pet's gumline, it kickstarts a cycle of bacterial growth and the erosion of supporting structures of your pet's teeth. This causes a consistent dull ache for your pet in their mouth. And the bacteria can even make its way into your pet's bloodstream, which is why animals with periodontal disease have a higher risk of heart, liver and kidney disease in old age. But not to worry - periodontal disease is no match for our team! We are passionate about dental health, and are equipped with advanced equipment, such as digital dental radiography to spot and eradicate the disease. If your pet hasn't had a dental checkup in the last year, or if you suspect they may have periodontal disease (the most common symptom is bad breath), please schedule a checkup today!

Stem Cell Therapy

We believe your pet deserves truly world-class medical care. That is why we invest in the cutting edge of veterinary medicine. That includes stem cell therapy.



What is MediVet Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells are powerful healing cells in your body that can become other types of cells. There are many adult stem cells in fat tissue, however they are asleep. MediVet’s stem cell therapy allows your vet to isolate stem cells from an animal’s own fat tissue, wake them up, and re-introduce the healing cells into the areas of need.

What is so great about Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells treat the source of the problem by offering the ability to become new tissue to replace damaged tissue. Other treatments, such as NSAIDs, merely attempt to reduce symptoms. The treatment is very low risk, because it uses the animal’s own stem cells. It offers an all-natural alternative to drugs and steroids. In a recent randomized sampling of 155 canines sufferings from osteoarthritis > 95% showed improvements as reported by the treating Veterinarians.

How long has this been available?
Stem cell therapy for animals has been commercially available since 2004. MediVet was the pioneer in offering to the Veterinarian industry same day, onsite treatments and has to date completed over 10,000 treatments globally.

Why Ask for MediVet Stem Cell therapy?
For pet owners, there are two main advantages to MediVet. First, the processing is all done in your vet’s office. This eliminates variability in outside shipping of the sample as well as offers a fresh is best approach to isolating, activating and re-administering your animals living cells back to the areas of need. The MediVet process has been independently validated in a blinded university medical setting.

What is Activation, and why is it important?
MediVet has a patented technology in which your animal’s stem cells will be activated with Platelet Rich Plasma (from a blood sample) and photobiostimulation (light).This dual activation process provides an increase in metabolic rate thus giving the cells the highest potential to survive once placed in the environment (your animal) and potential repair.

Is it safe?
Yes, this procedure is very safe. On a typical dog, this is easier than a spay, and the fat is collected in about 15 minutes by your vet. Processing the sample is done carefully by a highly trained MediVet representative (or by a lab tech carefully trained by that representative). In the thousands of animals treated, we have not observed any negative side-effects from MediVet’s stem cell therapy.

What happens to my pet when they come in for stem cell therapy?
First, your vet will put your pet under general anesthetic. Then, he/she will make a small incision and collect 2-4 tablespoons of fat (either in the belly or behind the shoulder blades). Then a trained technician will process the sample, right in the clinic, using MediVet equipment. The sample is activated then introduced to the patient. The patient can then go home, same day.

What is the recovery period, and how long does it take to see results?
We recommend that the patient be kept quiet for the first 10 days. Then, while they may feel a lot better, you will need to be careful so your pet doesn’t injure themselves until theybuild up some of their muscles. Swimming and walking in water is great therapy. We typically see improvement starting after 3 weeks, and then continuing up to around 2 months.

What conditions do you treat?
Our typical patient has osteoarthritis (hip dysplasia, degenerative joint disease, calcifications, common degeneration and inflammation), soft tissue injuries (cruciate injuries, tears, ruptures, Inflammation), or needs accelerated healing of fractures. If your animal is suffering from something different such as Atopic Dermatitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease etc. your Vet will consult a team in order to consider stem cell as a treatment option compassionately.

How long does a treatment last? What happens if my pet starts having trouble again?
We typically see about 1-4 years of relief after the initial treatment. Most pet owners chose to bank cells, so retreatment is easy. MediVet has a banking facility in Kentucky. If symptoms return, your vet merely requests a dose of cells from the bank, and re-introduces the cells. No surgery is necessary.

Are there any animals that you don’t treat?
It is MediVet’s policy to bring its customers the latest data and provide recommendations for the safety of all patients. Currently, MediVet recommends that no animals with malignant cancer be treated with ADSCs.

What current Universities are MediVet partnering with?
MediVet currently has partnerships with the following Universities; University of Kentucky College of Medicine, University of Tennessee Veterinary College, Kansas State University Veterinary College, University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine among other international university institutions.

Therapeutic Laser

At the cutting edge of veterinary medicine is the use of lasers for treatment. Therapeutic lasers can help dogs and cats reduce pain, inflammation, have antibacterial effects, and can significantly speed the process of recovery. This can make therapeutic lasers an important component of post surgical care. Every day dogs and cats experience relief from our therapy laser for conditions such as osteoarthritis, spinal cord injuries, joint and muscle pain, wound healing, and skin conditions.

Thermography

Here, your pet will only receive the best care there is. That commitment is why we are bringing a revolutionary new way of diagnosing pain and inflammation to the pets of our community. Thermal imaging is a diagnostic tool that can measure differences in temperature to help identify "hot" and "cold" spots in our patients that are indicators of pain, inflammation, or nerve irritation. Through advanced imaging, we can often identify changes that can't be seen during a routine physical exam. This tool can also help us create more precise and effective treatment plans. Thermography is safe, fast, effective, and an important component of world-class care.

Myofascial Trigger Point Release

When muscles become knotted up, it can be really painful and can substantially limit movement. Humans often experience instances of this, but most people aren't aware that animals experience this too. Many neck and back conditions result in tight muscles (also known as "trigger points"). Patients who have trigger points find immense relief from Myofasical Trigger Point Release. During MTPR, we use acupuncture to stimulate the knotted muscles, which helps relax the muscle and release the knot. The reduction in pain and improvement in mobility is usually immediate. Dr. Brian has received specialized training in this technique and is very experienced in using it to help dogs and cats live better lives.

Animal Spinal Manipulation

When you love your pet like family, you want them to live the happiest, best, and longest life possible. Chiropractice technqiues are all about functional neurology. By activating the nerve, joint, muscle, and tendon complex and incorporating motion, function and mobility can be restored and pain can be reduced. Dr. Brian has earned CVSMT certification from Healing Oasis and is certified in Animal Spinal Manipulation. Together, we can keep your pet on the move and pain free. Because they deserve no less.

PennHip

Adopting a dog can be one of the most rewarding, loving, and nourishing experiences that a person can have. Certain types of dogs are more susceptible to developing hip dysplasia later in life, which is why we use PennHip. This is a diagnostic screening tool to help quantify the likelihood of this health condition so that it can be treated earlier and used in any potential breeding decisions. We have specialized training to ensure the fidelity of results. Radiographs are submitted to a certifying group for measuring the distracted index.

Acupuncture

We know how important it is to you to make sure that your pet isn't living in pain or with difficult circumstances. That's why we offer acupuncture as a safe and effective treatment option to reduce pain and improve function and mobility. Many arthritic pets find immense relief from acupuncture, and there are many other conditions that can benefit from this modality too. We also offer electro acupuncture, which can provide added pain modulation and nerve healing in patients with decreased nerve function. And because of our commitment to fear free, we make sure that acupuncture sessions are relaxing, enjoyable, and involve many, many treats for your pet.
