Noah’s Ark Pet Hospital triumphs with stem cells.

Regenerative Medicine for Pets: The Use of Stem Cells in Veterinary Medicine

Regenerative medicine has been making strides in the field of human medicine for quite some time, but now, a local veterinarian in Amarillo, Texas is utilizing stem cell technology in his patients.

The Power of Stem Cells

Stem cells are cells that have the ability to develop into blood, brain, bones, and all of the body’s organs. They have the potential to repair, restore, replace, and regenerate cells and could possibly be used to treat many medical conditions and diseases.

A New Wave of Treatment for Pets

Merten Pearson, DVM, the owner and clinician at Noah’s Ark Pet Hospital, is using this new, cutting-edge technology to improve the lives of community members’ pets.

“The possibilities are just mind-boggling and we are helping improve the dogs lives and their condition. It is a regenerative medicine, not a cover the symptoms medicine. It’s just next level,” says Pearson.

The Procedure

Essentially, what happens is Dr. Pearson would take a pet into surgery, take a sample of fat, and break it down using a system from Ardent Animal Health until it is only concentrated stem cells. The cells then get injected into your pet to heal anything from hip dysplasia to joint disease.

One of the benefits of this treatment is its versatility in treating a myriad of inflammatory diseases. Dr. Pearson has already seen great success from patients that were once paralyzed now running non-stop.

Success Stories

Roux, a French Bulldog, was one successful patient under Dr. Pearson’s care. The pup could not even walk on its back legs and had sores on the top of its back feet from dragging itself around. At 15 days post-injection, Dr. Pearson called Roux’s owner who reported that they could not stop Roux from running.

Improving Quality of Life

Noah’s Ark Pet Hospital also offers something called “Bank Now Save Later,” where they can store your pets stem cells now and use them later in life if they were to need treatment.

“It is just so nice to actually do something that improves their health, not just keeps them going, but actually makes life better. My goal is not to see how long I can keep an animal alive, my goal was to see how long I can keep an animal feeling good while it is alive. I’m all about the quality of life, and that’s what this lets me do, is improve the quality of life on lots of animals,” says Pearson.


In conclusion, the utilization of stem cell technology in regenerative medicine for pets is an exciting development in the field of veterinary medicine. Dr. Pearson and Noah’s Ark Pet Hospital are leading the charge in improving the lives of pets in their community.
