Stem Cell

tina123 Member Posts: 5

Has anyone out there done stem cell for their arthritis ? A friend of my sister swears by it and as he is a Vet, he decided to include this operation to his dog patients and has worked wonders. It is not for all and you have to be diagnosed first to see if you are a possible candidate.

I really would like to hear more first hand experiences so if you are one of them. Pls share us your story.
