(CHUBBUCK, ID) — An area animal clinic performed southeast Idaho’s first stem-cell procedure this week. Local News 8 reports that Alpine Animal Clinic in Chubbuck helped two animals ease their pain on Monday. The procedure used fat tissue from the animals, which will be used to create anti-inflammatory cells aimed at reducing discomfort associated with arthritis. The animals are expected to start feeling the effects of the new treatment within a few weeks.
