Veterinary Highlights: VetStem Biopharma Begins Enrollment in Pivotal FDA Clinical Study of Osteoarthritis in Dogs

I am a big believer in regenerative medicine and VetStem is a company who processed and stored Jasmine's stem cells. We used stem cells from Jasmine's own fat tissue in conjunction with her knee surgeries, to treat her arthritis as well as IV dose to help with her IBD.

We had great results with stem cell treatments.

For Cookie's knees, we opted for platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) mostly because of logistics. Fancy outfits in the US often use PRP and stem cells combination.

We have first-hand anecdotal experience with the success of regenerative therapies.

We've used them in the past and they will always be on the top of our list of treatments to consider.

One complaint about stem cell therapy is insufficient evidence that it really works. This should hopefully now change with this new study. It will enroll more than 200 dogs at 17 US veterinary clinics. I can't wait to see the results.
