Cartilage and Joint Injury Treatments For Horses
As horses are predisposed to traumatic wounds that can be labor intensive and expensive to heal, equine Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) start to play an important role in wound repair and healing of joint defects.
Stem Cell Therapy for horses helps treating symptoms of joint injuries and support the formation of normal hyaline cartilage, keeping horse healthier for longer.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) secrete soluble factors, which cause increased immune responses and influence the matrix turnover in synovium and cartilage. The beneficial effect of MSCs on cartilage morphology and histology has been demonstrated in various models.
MSCs produce a mix of anti-inflammatory proteins, including IL-1RA, with growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration. This is exactly why it is a highly recommended joint treatment for horses.
Medrego offers EquiCell Stem Cell Therapy for cartilage and joint injuries that can help to deal with pain and might stop the progression of the disease or condition.
It’s a simple injection procedure. The cells move to inflamed or damaged tissue, can suppress inflammation, can relieve pain, and cause new tissue to grow.
How To Proceed And Order?
1. Veterinarian consultation.
Visit your veterinarian to ensure that Stem Cell Therapy is suitable for a particular case. Veterinarians will decide whether to use autologous or allogeneic Stem Cells.
If your veterinarian is not aware of such treatment options as stem cell therapy, we will be happy to assist him and explain more about the opportunities he is missing out. For most popular horse injuries Stem Cells do appear to be the most effective treatment option available.

Veterinarian or Horse owner can easily order the EquiCell therapy over the phone, email or order form and it will be delivered to your desired clinic on dry ice within 24-48 hours. A veterinarian can also easily store the treatment doses in a regular freezer (-20C ) for future use or upcoming cases.
3. Performing the Stem Cell Therapy.
A veterinarian will perform a Stem Cell Therapy, that includes local short-term anesthesia and simple Stem Cell injection guided by ultrasound.
In the case of intravenous (IV) injection for overall improvements and performance boost it will be even easier, just a simple injection in the neck (bloodstream).
4. Recovery and observation.
After the procedure, follow veterinarian instructions and see how your horse recovers and thrives. The first healing results can already be seen after 2 weeks, and complete recovery takes 3-6 months.
