Dog & Cat Success Stories
Babette - Osteoarthritis in hips and knees
Babette was nearly unable to go up a flight of stairs. When she tried, she would fall as her back legs gave out on her. This caused her to lose her balance and fall on the steps. With perseverance, she eventually made it up, but she was in pain. I always knew when she was suffering as she always panted when experiencing pain. I asked Dr. Reck why she would pant while sitting or lying down. I learned that day that this was her way of expressing pain. Dr. Reck examined her and did an x-ray. She told me she had osteoarthritis in both hips and stifles in her rear legs. She had extreme difficulty getting into my car without my assistance. Babette slowed down on walks and had difficulty rising up from lying down. At that point, I realized that stem cell therapy would greatly increase her quality of life. Babette can go up the stairs without a problem. It seems like she is a puppy because she no longer pants. She can walk at a greater clip and sometimes tells me she does not want her walk to end. At times, we can continue and other times I have to go to work. She can get in a car with a lot more ease and she is more willing to do so. She has become a younger dog since having this procedure. I am so grateful that I was able to do this for my Babette. I want her to have quality of life!!! I am so thankful for Dr. Reck and her expertise with stem cell therapy. Thank you VetStem Biopharma for offering this. I can hardly wait for our 60 day check-up as this has been a total game changer for Babette and me!!!! Note: Pet owner received one free year of stem cell storage in exchange for their honest testimonial.
