Gracie - Bilateral Hip Dysplasia and Osteoarthritis

Image of Dog & Cat

Description: Gracie, our Golden Retriever, was only two when she suddenly could not stand up. It was heartbreaking to see our precious, rambunctious pup hurt so badly. Gracie had always been VERY active and mouthy during her first two years of life. In fact, we had commented on how much she had calmed down by the age of two. Little did we know she had been struggling with pain. We immediately took her to our veterinarian, Dr. Wendy Wolverton, who confirmed through Xrays that she had an extreme case of hip dysplasia. We were given our options, none of which sounded great. Then Dr. Wendy suggested we speak to her partner, Dr. Angie Zinkus, who had performed many successful VetStem Cell therapies. Although it has only been a few months since her therapy, we have seen a vast improvement and consider it a huge success! Comments: Gracie is back to her silly self, running as fast as she can to chase our backyard squirrels!! Thank you, VetStem and Dr. Zinkus for this wonderful solution to Gracie's painful hips. Note: Pet owner received one free year of stem cell storage in exchange for their honest testimonial.
