As a veterinarian, you have two core priorities to treat your patients and grow your business.

You want to offer compassionate and effective medical attention to every animal brought into your practice while also making business decisions that support the success of your practice.

These two goals don’t always go hand-in-hand. You’ve probably lost count of how many patients you’ve helped despite the lack of financial benefit.

You’ve likely also lost track of the number of dogs and cats you would have helped in a heartbeat if the right treatments existed or were more accessible.

Thanks to the emerging advancements in stem cell therapy, it’s finally possible to blend both of your priorities.

A new and innovative form of stem cell therapy for dogs called HUC-DT offers incredible healing power for your patients while also providing unprecedented financial benefits to your practice.

An Introduction to Stem Cell Therapy For Dogs

You may already be familiar with the concept of stem cell therapy as a canine treatment method. Stem cell therapy emerged in the early 21st century thanks to the efforts of Dr. Brian Voynick from the American Animal Hospital in Randolph, New Jersey. Voynick spearheaded the use of stem cells in the form of autologous mesenchymal stem cell therapy.

Stem cells function naturally in the body to heal and rebuild tissues when the body becomes damaged. However, sometimes the natural capabilities of stem cells cannot overcome age or severe damage.

Stem cell therapy delivers a concentrated number of stem cells directly into an injury in order to accelerate healing and regeneration of the injured area.

“A new and innovative form of stem cell therapy for dogs called HUC-DT offers incredible healing power for your patients while also providing unprecedented financial benefits to your practice.”

There’s no doubt that autologous mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy has the potential to provide benefits to canine patients, but it is also fraught with drawbacks that have prevented many vets from capitalizing on the potential of stem cell therapy to treat injured patients.

How Is Conventional Stem Cell Therapy Done?

Autologous MSC therapy involves harvesting stem cells from bone marrow or fat. The dog is placed under anesthesia while stem cells are collected. All harvested stem cells must be sent back to a laboratory to be incubated and processed with chemicals that wake up the natural stem cells in the bone marrow or fat.

It can take days or weeks for the stem cells to return to the vet, at which point the dog must endure a second round of anesthesia while the stem cells are infused into the body.

Delivering stem cells through an IV is not an option with autologous MSC therapy because the stem cell count is so low- usually only 1,000 stem cells per mL.

Only anesthesia makes it possible to hold the canine patient still and calm while the stem cells are injected into their precise locations.

The Many Drawbacks of Conventional Stem Cell Therapy

While the healing potential of canine stem cell therapy is exciting, this older canine stem cell therapy is also a time-intensive and expensive process.

As a vet, you have a finite number of hours each day to see patients and generate revenue for your business. Autologous MSC therapy is a time-consuming procedure, with each treatment taking up to four or five hours of the day.

This infringes upon time to see other patients, make appointments, and make money from other treatments and procedures.

Furthermore, the cost of conventional stem cell therapy makes it unattainable to most patients. The average income of your clientele may range from $40,000 to $60,000, making a $6,000 therapy for a pet simply out of the question.

There’s also the issue of placing dogs under anesthesia twice in a short amount of time.

Anesthesia poses risks to canines, especially the senior dogs who are most likely to need stem cell therapy. Symptoms range from minor swelling at the injection site to anaphylactic shock. Even without dangerous side effects, anesthesia forces a dog’s body to endure more stress and trauma than is necessary.

Finally, conventional stem cell therapy can be painful for the patient during harvesting, and the client cannot be present during the procedure.

Old Stem Cell Therapy Vs. HUC-DT Stem Cell Therapy

HUC-DT stem cell therapy offers a new and unique way to approach stem cell therapy. Unlike Autologous MSC therapy, HUC-DT stem cell therapy offers a rich range of benefits to canine patients and your vet practice alike.

How Is HUC-DT Stem Cell Therapy Different?

HUC-DT stem cell therapy does not rely on stem cells harvested from fat cells or bone marrow. Instead, it uses stem cells obtained directly from human umbilical cords.

The umbilical cord and placenta contain rare hematopoietic stem cells that have powerful medical uses, yet most hospitals just throw the umbilical cord and placenta away after birth.

HUC-DT canine stem cell therapy uses what others see as waste. Mothers can volunteer to donate cord blood for medical purposes. The stem cells are collected with zero risks to mothers and babies and used the improve the health of sick and injured patients.

“HUC-DT stem cell therapy offers a new and unique way to approach stem cell therapy. Unlike Autologous MSC therapy, HUC-DT stem cell therapy offers a rich range of benefits to canine patients and your vet practice alike.”

HUC-DT stem cell therapy is also painless for the patient, and the client is able to be present during the procedure.

All of this means that HUC-DT offers a faster, safer, and more affordable method than autologous MSC therapy.

How Can HUC-DT Stem Cell Therapy Benefit Your Vet Practice?

The key differences between conventional stem cell therapy and HUC-DT stem cell therapy for dogs make it possible to reap incredible benefits for your vet practice.

If you implement HUC-DT stem cell therapy for your canine patients, you can expect to generate more revenue, differentiate yourself from your closest competitors, and earn more satisfied clients.

Generate More Revenue For Your Practice

Compared to the conventional method of stem cell therapy, HUC-DT stem cell therapy takes a fraction of the time and costs a fraction of the money.

This process does not require anesthesia, bone marrow harvesting, or other complex procedures that must be completed by a professional veterinarian.

Instead, a vet technician can lead the HUC-DT stem cell IV procedure under supervision of a veterinarian.

This allows a vet tech making a salary of about $15 or $20 per hour to generate anywhere from $500 to $700 in revenue in a simple 15-minute appointment. No other procedure has the potential to deliver so much pure revenue in a small time frame.

Better yet, it allows a technician to generate significant profits for a veterinary clinic, something that is rarely seen in small animal medicine.

The math speaks for itself. If just one technician completes four HUC-DT stem cell procedures in a month, he will generate $2,000 per month and $24,000 per year for the entire vet practice.

In reality, any active clinic is likely to have technicians handling far more than four procedures per month, which means the revenue generated by one single technician will likely far exceed $24,000.

Overall, implementing HUC-DT stem cell therapy makes it possible to open a new source of continual revenue and let a technician handle the procedures.

The stem cell procedures alone will almost pay for the technician’s entire annual salary!

It’s an unprecedented benefit in small animal medicine to simultaneously increase your bottom line, improve efficacy of staff members, and help animals recover from significant injuries.

Set Your Practice Apart

Fifty years ago, each town had one veterinarian that everybody knew. Residents didn’t have to think twice about finding vet care for their pets.

However, today we live in a much busier world where five or six vets compete against each other and large corporations like PetSmart threaten local neighborhood businesses.

There are only a few ways to set your practice apart in the midst of such intense competition. You can either lower your prices to become the cheapest clinic, or you can provide a unique service to your clientele.

HUC-DT stem cell therapy is the perfect service to differentiate your vet practice from the clinics around you.

HUC-DT stem cell is cutting edge medicine that very few vets are using. By harnessing the power of HUC-DT, you can shape the reputation of your practice and become known as the leading industry expert in your area.

This makes it possible to generate new clients and positive word of mouth, which continues the cycle of boosting revenue, all while improving the lives and wellness of the canine patients that you love!

Make Stem Cell Therapy Affordable

In addition to your desire to watch your vet practice succeed, you also have the heart of a vet who wants to help every sick and injured animal.

Before the advent of stem cell therapy, many injuries and illnesses simply couldn’t be treated effectively. Arthritis, hip dysplasia, and dementia, just to name a few.

HUC-DT stem cell therapy makes it possible to offer your patients the procedure they need without the intimidating and restrictive price tag. HUC-DT has been used as a successful therapy for many common canine problems:

While the old stem cell therapy costs at least $6,000, HUC-DT is available to patients for only $2,000.

Better yet, this price point provides 5 million viable stem cells per mL, compared to only 1,000 per mL in the more expensive conventional treatment. A full 5 million cells increases the potential for healing exponentially.

Stem Cell Therapy for Veterinarians

Stem Cell Therapy Is Evidence-Based

As a veterinarian professional, you may be thinking, “HUC-DT stem cell therapy sounds great, but I’ve never heard of it before. I’ve only seen papers on mesenchymal stem cell therapy.”

HUC-DT is an innovative therapy that is just launching off the ground, so the extensive research and literature simply don’t exist yet. Studies take many years to complete and report, and HUC-DT is very new.

However, even without hundreds of existing studies, there is no denying that HUC-DT is evidence-based.

The Human-Dog Connection

Many animal species use the same proteins throughout their bodies. These proteins are made of amino acids arranged in specific sequences.

They trigger receptors within cells and are utilized in nearly every tissue in the body. Since over 98% of proteins are identical in composition and function across animal species, it’s possible to use a treatment on one species that was obtained from a different species, such as giving insulin from a porcine species to a dog.

Dogs, humans, horses, and primates have especially similar protein structures. Because the process of inflammation is driven by these proteins and other biochemicals, dogs and humans also share very similar inflammatory processes.

As a result, stem cells can be taken from humans and used successfully in canines. This is why HUC-DT delivers such impressive results despite the stem cells being transferred between species.

An Accidental Discovery

Stem cells have been used to treat humans for decades, and the science is now more advanced than ever before.

The idea to use stem cell therapy to treat dogs was actually discovered accidentally during stem cell studies for human purposes. Scientists were using animals to assess the effects of cord blood stem cells and ultimately observed real, tangible improvements in the animals.

This led to the question- “Why aren’t we using stem cells to treat dogs?”

It’s true that cord blood stem cells were first identified to treat human conditions, but HUC-DT offers powerful benefits to dogs as well. The body doesn’t know any difference between the source of stem cells, it simply sees a chemical that can fight inflammation and stimulate tissue regeneration.

Stem Cell Therapy Safety

No veterinarian wants to introduce a treatment that puts patients in danger. Fortunately, stem cell therapy is a very safe procedure with no side effects seen to date.

HUC-DT stem cells in particular are delivered into the body in their purest form- there is nothing foreign to trigger any type of unwanted reaction.

This explains why no negative side effects have ever been reported after HUC-DT stem cell therapy.
