Autologous bone-marrow-derived stem cell therapy uses your horse’s own stem cells to treat musculoskeletal diseases. We harvest a bone marrow sample from the horse’s sternum or pelvis and send it to a lab that cultures the cells. We then use these cells to treat a variety of conditions, including tendonitis, desmitis (ligament inflammation), osteoarthritis, and osteochondrosis (OCD) defects. Stem cells are injected directly into the site of the area that requires treatment, where they then develop into new cells of the desired tissue type to help in repair.

A Message From Bend Equine Medical Center To Our Small Animal Division Clients

As of March 31, 2023, Bend Equine Medical Center will be discontinuing our small animal veterinary division other than chiropractic and acupuncture. As always, we continue to proudly serve as Central Oregon's premier equine hospital and offer around-the-clock care for your horses and equids.

You and your pets are close to our hearts and we are honored you trusted us with their care over the past decade. Please contact us to have your pets' records transferred to your new small animal veterinarian.

Thank you for your email
