“Here’s a picture of Yogi at the beach. He’s in great shape, 2 years after the stem cell treatment. We joke that he goes around singing “I feel good” in a James Brown voice.
Yogi was infected with 3 tick born diseases including Lyme’s about 2 and ½ years ago. The Lyme’s, together with significant hip dysplasia, proved a terrible combination. He got so bad (even after weeks of antibiotics that cleared up the Lyme’s) that in the evenings he stiffened up so much he could barely get up from a lying or sitting position. Some days he was in so much pain he didn’t want to go for the daily park outings with the other household dogs and would just sit forlornly on the deck.
