Dog & Cat Success Stories

Opus - Bilateral hip osteoarthritis

Image of Dog & Cat

Opus had moderate arthritis and hip dysplasia, which started to manifest when he was 6. He'd been doing well on Adequan and the occasional Rimadyl, and started to get a little worse when he was a little over 8. My vet and I had been discussing Stem Cell Therapy all along, and decided to wait until the medications started to lose a little of their effectiveness. Although we are continuing the Adequan, we were able to discontinue the Rimadyl, and Opus runs around the yard as if he were a 3 year-old. I'm very happy with the procedure, and it's good to know that we have another dose should it become necessary in his remaining time. Note: Pet owner received one free year of stem cell storage in exchange for their honest testimonial.
