The following testimonials have been submitted by owners on behalf of their pets. VetStem wants you to remember that similar to other treatment options, not all pets respond to VetStem cell therapy. Approximately 25% of dogs treated for arthritis had no improvement in quality of life according to voluntary owner surveys.

Pet owners should discuss appropriateness of treatment for their pet including potential complications of surgery, potential outcomes, a comprehensive treatment plan and associated costs with their veterinarian prior to treatment. A checklist of points to consider can be found here to take to your veterinarian.
