Keno

In March of 2006 my 5 year old German Shepherd, Keno, blew his left ACL while swimming in the ocean. Ten days later he blew his right ACL while simply walking in for dinner. Since then he has had 6 knee operations in total; this gives you a good idea how badly his knees were pitted and riddled with arthritis. During this two year period Keno was on Metacam daily and occasionally either Tramadol or codeine, when he was having a painfully bad stretch.

Dr. Janice Crook got word of Vet-Stem and decided to do her research. This research convinced both of us that it was worth a shot and on August 7th, 2008 Keno received his stem cell therapy.

It had been over two months since Keno walked on all four paws. Well, you can imagine everyone’s surprise when 4 days after receiving his stem cells, that Keno started to walk with all paws on the ground. He started to manage coming up the stairs when called, and then even when he wasn’t called.

Within two weeks Keno was back at K9H20 where Kendall DeMenech noticed he was making a much fuller motion with his back legs and because of his added mobility he was swimming much higher on the water and moving “Damn fast!”

As of November 2008 Keno has shown no signs of relapsing or stopping. He plays with his toys, jumps on the bed to watch late night TV with me and comes up and down the stairs any time he wants. As well, he is getting up from laying position much easier and doesn’t stiffen up after his normal swims. And most importantly Keno is off ALL medications and back to being an oversized puppy again!

I have no idea what the future holds for Keno but in regards to Vet-Stem my wife Linda and I couldn’t be happier with the way we were treated or the results. And not a week goes by that I do not get a chance to tell people about Dr. Crook and Vet-Stem.

Granite

Granite, our 8 year old Chocolate labrador, has suffered from degenerative bone disease and arthritis in both front elbows.

Before stem cells, Granite walked bow legged and with a limp. He acted as though he was in great pain, and since he is a service dog he was unable to go on long walks with his owner.

He didn't play much, and would not even chase squirrels. The improvement was fantastic after he recieved his stem cell therapy. We now go out more and people remark how well he now walks.

You made Granite's life and my life a whole lot better! Thank You

Zeus

Zeus has had major symptoms of arthritis for the last 6 years of his life. He was always limping, had swelling of the joints, and was very unstable on his hind legs. Both of his hind legs had ligament injuries, which limited such an active dog. Since his osteoarthritis was getting worse, and I felt surgery was too invasive a procedure, I decided on Vet-Stem therapy. Within a week and a half of the stem cells being injected we really started to notice a difference. He used to not be able to stand up, and now he can lift off from his backend; he no longer has to drag himself up from the front. It is great to watch him moving, running, and being in less pain. This saved his life. Click here to watch the full news segment as featured on Phoenix ABC 15

Abbey

Abbey, our 12 year old Golden Retriever had suffered from poly-arthritis for years. We had managed her pain for 4-5 years by using various alternative medications, Chinese herbs, supplements, acupuncture and traditional drugs. Her coat deteriorated, her muscles atrophied and she had a lot of swelling and pain in her joints. Many times we had to carry Abbey or put her in a wagon to pull her around. A couple weeks after her stem cell therapy she was chasing bunnies and squirrels and her coat grew back doubly-full! We had our dog back after 4-5 years of constant pain management. Abbey is no longer on half the medications she was prior to the stem cell therapy. Thanks for giving me a front row seat to a miracle.
