Stem cell therapy in cats

There is a lot of talk about the use of stem cells in human medicine, but did you know it is used in veterinary medicine too? In cats, there are a number of research projects looking into the value of stem cells in inflammatory conditions (such as inflammatory bowel disease and feline asthma), and chronic illness where the ability of tissue to repair or regenerate is desired (such as tendon injuries, chronic kidney disease).

A number of these important research projects are funded by the Winn Feline Foundation, a non-profit organisation that supports studies to improve cats health. In fact we have so much more to tell you about the Winn Feline Foundation, that we think it deserves its own post!
