About Stem Cell Therapy

About Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells are naturally occurring cells in the body that are capable of dividing and differentiating into diverse specialized cell types and can self renew to produce more stem cells.  What this means is that when stem cells are collected and activated, they can be placed into an affected area, such as an arthritic joint, allowing them to regenerate and grow into healthy tissue.  The result is a diseased area becoming more stout and strong thanks to the new cellular growth.

"Can stem cell therapy be used for dogs and cats?" Yes! We can treat various conditions with stem cells such as osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, cruciate rupture, atopy, and intervertebral disc disease.

We are very excited to announce that we have had our first pediatric stem cell banking surgery! This is one lucky dog! His family opted to have us obtain and bank his stem cells during his neuter surgery. We were able to obtain enough cells for 9 future treatments and they will be safely banked for future use. And who knows what possibilities lie ahead.

  • "We want to thank Dr. Derfuss and her entire staff at Branchburg Animal Hospital for all of the wonderful service and care we have received over the years. We've been with the practice since it opened many years ago. Whether we are coming to the office to pick up food or bring our pets in to be treated, we are given the best care. They are like family to us. We give them an A++ and have recommended them on many occasions."
    The Del Grosso Family
  • "Linda and I have been bringing our Labrador Retrievers (first Shiloh and now Cooper) to Dr. Derfuss and the Branchburg Animal Hospital for many years. We have always admired and embraced the leading edge, holistic healing practices that are employed there. This has included such applications as acupuncture, chiropractic and the utilization of natural supplements, all of which have appreciably augmented the overall quality of life for our beloved canines. At a time and in a country where the overuse of prescription medication has clearly run amok, it is great to have a facility in our area where numerous other alternatives are deployed and RX medication is applied on a far more discerning basis."
    Kevin B.
  • "My husband and I have been taking our German Shepherds to Dr. Derfuss for many years. She is extremely caring and compassionate. She not only practices traditional medicine but holistic too. Our "girls" actually loved when they went to the vet! We highly recommend Branchburg Animal Hospital!"
    Carla B.
  • "I’ve been bringing my cats here for 15 years and Dr. Derfuss and the staff have been caring and compassionate. Holistic treatments are available if you want them, depending on the animal’s condition, and I have gone this route a couple of times for ailing cats. I never felt pressured into accepting any particular treatment. I’ve always been given all the options and chose what I felt was best. There are a number of vets closer to where I live, but I continue to make a slightly longer drive to Branchburg Animal Hospital because I trust them."
    Loretta A.
  • "Great Vet, Professional Staff, Very Clean. We are fortunate to live close to this great Vet!!"
