Veterinary Highlights: Dog Owners' Feedback On Stem Cell Therapy

Check out the survey results as dog owners report their experience with stem cell therapy for arthritis.

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?
Greater than 80% of dogs with arthritis have improved Quality of Life.


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.

  1. Oo good post on stem cell therapy! Happy New Year ♥

  2. They are some happy stats Jana. Is your dog still going ok on the stem cell treatment from a few years ago? I am interested how long people are finding the treatment works for.

  3. Yes, very happy stats :-) Jasmine is doing great; not just only by our observation, but also by our vet's observation. On his exam reports he always marks it as "abnormal" as she is doing so much better than would be expected considering what the initial situation was and the expected progress from there would be.

    Jasmine is happy, active, playful ... she is like an 8.5 year old puppy. We are extremely happy to see her like that. She is doing better than we ever hoped for.
