stem cells to help with joint problems?

Recommended Posts

I wish that veterinary medicine could find something that would help. So many otherwise healthy dogs get felled before their time because of terrible joint problems.

 

It might be something to at least look into. I didn't know anything about this when I lost Ellie last year. I have no idea if I could have afforded it but I would have like to have been able to look into it at least.

I wonder what this company is doing that is different than all the others who offer stem cell therapy. I had stem cell treatment done last year on my dog's arthritic hip and I'm very happy with the results. The veterinary surgeon who performed the procedure has been doing stem cell transplants for 8+ years.

The hospital where I work now does some incredible stuff with stem cells and PRP therapy. I've seen dogs with partially torn cruciates be treated with stem cells and go on to compete in national level dog sports within 6 months.

 

We are also doing quite a few studies on stem cell therapies. I'll have to find out if any are specifically for joints.
