I recently learned that my vet offers stem cell therapy for dogs and by all accounts, it has been quite successful in performance dogs he has treated (herding, agility, flyball mostly) and for about the same costs as surgery (used extensively for knee problems). I know it's been used pretty extensively in horses as well. And for those that may not know about it, it seems like something worthy of checking into before going the surgery route. Although my dog isn't injured (knock on wood), I found it very interesting and wondered if anyone here has any experience with stem cell therapy?
Here's an article from Nature about it:
