Milestone 3000th Dog Treated Using Vet-Stem Cell Therapy

2011-01-04 --

Little did we know in 2008, when Vet-Stem first offered stem cell therapy for dogs and cats, that so many veterinarians and owners would adopt stem cell therapy. We are celebrating this holiday season with the milestone of the 3,000th treatment of a canine companion with stem cells! We are honored that so many pet owners and veterinarians have placed their trust in the Vet-Stem Cell Therapy technology to treat osteoarthritis and tendon and ligament injuries. We are proud and delighted to hear the stories of the reduction in pain and improvement in quality of life in so many dogs.

Here is one of the many success stories:

Vixen Miller - 11yr old Agility Champion
Border Collie and stem cell advocate since 2007
Right hip lameness, caused by agility accident

Vixen finished 8th out of 300 of the top agility dogs in the world in 2005 at the USDAA Cynosport World Games. She earned her MACH and ADCH titles-championship titles from two major organizations. Then in 2006 she suffered a normally career ending hip injury that left her with a painful bone-on-bone condition. Often, she could barely walk. After stem cell therapy and recovery, Vixen competed against hundreds of dogs to become a finalist in the National Competition.

"I want to express my sincere gratitude to Vet-Stem and my veterinarian for giving Vixen her health, happiness and a pain free life using Stem Cell Therapy. At the age of 11, four years after the initial Stem Cell treatments, Vixen continues to enjoy an active pain free life. Thank you Vet-Stem. - Shannon Miller.

I met Shannon and Vixen at a competition recently and what a team! Vixen was the show celebrity because everyone knew the story of her struggle with pain and her incredible will to return to competition. Congratulations Shannon and Vixen!
