’Tis the season for food, family and festivities! Unfortunately, even our pets can overindulge and earn themselves a spot on the naughty list and a trip to the vet. Here are some tips to help you keep your furry family members healthy for the holidays.

Veterinary medicine is always progressing and continuing to evolve new therapies for common and not-so-common conditions that afflict our animal companions. One of these new therapies is regenerative medicine. This technique utilizes stem cells derived from the patient’s own body to help regenerate diseased and injured tissues.

When many of us think about pets, the first things that come to mind are dogs and cats. Our canine and feline companions, after all, make up the majority of household pets in the United States. However, there are a variety of other animals that make wonderful companions, furry and feathered, even scaly and slimy. 

Does your dog appear to be slowing down? Maybe not playing or running as robustly as he or she once did? It may be due to a common joint problem that also affects people: Your dog or cat may be suffering from arthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease.

Veterinary medicine has come a long way in its ability to diagnose and treat disease in our companion animals, and the diagnostic tools we have available to us have come a long way as well.
