Emergency service

Veterinarians are here 24 hours per day and no appointment is necessary in emergency circumstances.

We are centrally located within a few miles of the NJ Turnpike, Route 322 and 295.

Our doctors and staff will coordinate closely with your primary care veterinarian, so that we exchange medical records to ensure we have the information we need to care for your pet and so that your veterinarian’s office maintains complete records following your visit at our hospital.

Regenerative medicine

Saint Francis is home to the region’s first canine-validated regenerative medicine laboratory which offers stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma treatments for patients.

We process your pet’s own bone marrow-derived stem cells and platelet-rich plasma, which allows us to use your pet’s own cells in his or her therapy.

Stem cells have three defining properties: they are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods; they are unspecialized; and they can give rise to specialized cell types.  In short, they have the ability to differentiate into cartilage, bone, tendons and ligaments for repair and regeneration. These attributes make them useful in the treatment of soft tissue like tendons and ligaments, osteoarthritis, post surgical repair, and spinal conditions.

Primary functions of stem cells for regenerative therapy include:

  • Regenerate and heal injured tissue
  • Decrease inflammation (anti-inflammatory)
  • Stimulate new blood supply (angiogenesis)
  • Activate resident stem cells (chemotactic for progenitor cells)
  • Stimulate healing and tissue growth (supply growth factors)
  • Create a scaffold for healing tissues (form an extracellular matrix)
  • Protect cells from death (anti-apoptosis)
  • Break down scar tissue in chronic conditions (anti-fibrotic)

Bone marrow-derived stem cells are typically obtained under a brief anesthesia or heavy sedation. A needle is inserted into the medullary cavity (center of the bone) and the cells are aspirated with a syringe.

Stem cells are then injected under ultrasound or arthroscopic guidance.  Injections are performed under sedation or a brief anesthesia as an outpatient procedure.
