Posted by Bob under dog arthritis, stem cell therapy

Many dog owners who are considering stem cell therapy for their dog want to know if stem cells are a one-time treatment or if periodic injections are needed.  The answer is yes to both questions.

Some dogs treated with stem cells see a prolonged benefit that lasts years, click here to read Yogi’s experience. Other dogs, especially older dogs with more severe arthritis might need re-treatment periodically. 

Vet-Stem has compiled treatment results of young and old dogs.  The results show that 63% of older dogs and 78% of young dogs did not get re-treated in the 12 months following initial treatment.  The need for re-treatment will vary depending on each animals condition, activity level and overall health, but this valuable information may help you decide how to treat arthritis in your dog.
