While skeptics insist that there is not enough actual evidence to support efficacy of the stem cell therapy, others are very excited about it. I am one of latter. Jasmine is one of the dogs who had been treated with stem cells and the shape she's in is truly remarkable.
Perhaps quality of life is not easily quantifiable.
But I can tell you that Jasmine surely does not care about that. All she cares about is being able to live her life to the fullest.
What do stem cells do?
Vet-Stem has been providing stem cell training and services to hundreds of veterinarians in the U.S. and Canada since 2004. Over 6,000 animals have been treated for arthritis and/or tendon and ligament injuries, many of which were not responding to other treatment methods.
