For decades, researchers have touted stem cells as a potential treatment for a number of diseases. Doctors already use stem cells to treat people with leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood disorders as well as for some solid cancer tumors.Pets can also take advantage of stem cell treatments. “Used for appropriate conditions, I think this therapy will significantly help a large number of animals. In the right instances, the results have already been astounding,” says Sean Owens, DVM, DACVP. He’s an associate professor at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and medical director for the school’s Regenerative Medicine Laboratory.The most common and successful veterinary use of stem cells treats osteoarthritis in dogs, as well as injuries to bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and the spinal cord. Early research also shows that stem cells might successfully treat dry eye in dogs and stomatitis — a severe, painful oral disease — in cats. In the future, pets and people could benefit from stem cell therapy for chronic diseases such as diabetes and autoimmune diseases such as lupus, Owens says.
