The Pet Stem Cell Institute
We invite you to take a look around and explore
the Ultimate in alternative pet healthcare
The Pet Stem Cell Institute is an entity led by Dr. Michael Amsberry involved in the research, application,
and education about Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy in Pets. These activities are primarily conducted
out of Dr. Amsberry’s practice, Saint Francis Pet Care Center in Tarpon Springs Florida, but involves many
other researchers and facilities in the area and nationwide.
This is Jax, he is one of Dr. Amsberry's loyal patients!

and participants must qualify with our application guidelines.
Meet Dr. Michael Amsberry, DVM
Dr. Amsberry is the owner of The Pet Stem Cell Institute and
St. Francis Pet Care Center in Tarpon Springs Florida.
Dr. Amsberry recently founded The Pet Stem Cell Institute to further research stem cell therapy as a safe
and effective treatment for his patients. He is particularly interested in treating conditions that have been
difficult to manage and those that require chronic drug use.

We sure hope you caught tonight's news story following Cosby's journey with stem cell treatment. If you missed it, here's the video. Please share this with your friends and help spread the word. To find out more, please read the story on Fox 13's website here:
We were on the news!
The Story: Veterinarian, Mike Amsberry is offering stem cell therapy for dogs. This study is focused specifically on four-legged friends with arthritis. We had the pleasure of doing a short interview with Erik Waxler of ABC Action News on our latest breakthrough FDA pivotal stem cell study. This particular story highlights one of your candidates and long-time furry friend. Cosby. He, like may of our four-legged friends isn’t getting around like he used to. With our latest osteoarthritis study, we hope to help him get around a lot better after treatment. Lear more about the study here and if you think your pup may be a candidate apply here.
What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. In addition, in many tissues they serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive.
St. Francis Pet Care Center is privileged to provide veterinary care to Tarpon Springs and the surrounding communities including East Lake, New Port Richey, Palm Harbor, Trinity, Holiday, Odessa, and Keystone. Our focus is on preventative medicine – to help treat or cure diseases before they have a chance to cause discomfort to your dog or cat.

Welcome To The Pet Stem Cell Institute
Our commitment to The Pet Stem Cell Institute’s client is to educate the pet parent, clearly communicating the potential risks and benefits of Stem Cell Therapy, what the therapy will consist of, what we are providing, what are our expectations of the pet parent, and how we will provide follow-up care. Whether a pet is enrolled in a study or is receiving individual treatment, we are equipped to provide the following:

If you have a beloved dog that could benefit from these life-saving stem cells, please apply to become part of this stem cell study.
Have some Questions?
We are a privately held entity led by Dr. Michael Amsberry involved in the research, application, and education about Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy in Pets. These activities are primarily conducted out of Dr. Amsberry’s practice, Saint Francis Pet Care Center in Tarpon Springs Florida, but involves many other researchers and facilities in the area and nationwide.
These cells are found throughout the body but are more concentrated in fat and bone marrow. Mesenchymal stem cells are constantly being created and used to repair and restore tissues in our bodies (primarily connective tissues such as bone/cartilage/muscle/tendon) that have been damaged or simply die from natural causes. As we age, we have fewer and fewer stem cells. These cells have the unique ability to travel to where they are needed (homing), decrease inflammation and pain, and become the tissue(s) that the body needs at that location at that time. Simply amazing!
We believe that they respond to “homing signals” produced by the body. The scientific community believes that these may be hormonal and/or electrochemical signals. There is much more research to be accomplished. We have shown that this happens, just not sure as to how.
Stem cells that are harvested from the patient and re-introduced back into the same patient are known as “autologous” and cells harvested from a patient and transplanted into another patient are known as “allogeneic”.
