Mountain Ridge Animal Hospital and Pain Management Center of Lafayette, Colorado Helps Local Shepherd Manage the Pain of Arthritis Naturally

February 20, 2014 --

Four-and-a-half year old Dakota, a German Shepherd from Colorado, is managing the pain from osteoarthritis with the help of stem cell therapy thanks to Mountain Ridge Animal Hospital and Pain Management Center of Lafayette.  Dakota’s positive results showed almost immediately, and just a few months post stem cell therapy using Vet-Stem, Inc. services, he is doing activities that he has not done for years. 

Dakota was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at just three years old, and in less than two years time his owners felt his quality of life had significantly started to deteriorate.  Robert Landry, DVM at Mountain Ridge Animal Hospital and Pain Management Center has been doing regenerative cell therapy with Vet-Stem for six years, treating various types of orthopedic issues and arthritis in small animals, and determined Dakota was a good candidate for the procedure. 

Dr. Landry began Dakota's procedure on a Tuesday in October by collecting a small sample of fat called the falciform fat pad, which was sent overnight to Vet-Stem's lab in San Diego, California.  Received the next morning, the lab processed Dakota's fat and created injectable doses of his own stem cells to be overnighted back to Dr. Landry.  Thursday Dakota received his hip injections and recovery began. 

"Dakota's results were almost immediate," Dakota's owners expressed, "He moves around with ease now and can even go up and down the stairs.  Last week he jumped into the back of my SUV, which he hasn't done in years.  His quality of life is so much better and he seems truly happier.  Before the stem cell therapy Dakota never wagged his tail, and now he doesn’t stop!  His quality of life is so much better and he seems truly happier."

Dr. Landry and the team at Mountain Ridge Animal Hospital and Pain Management Center specialize in companion animal health care, striving to provide the highest quality in Veterinary health care and customer service.  Some of their specialties are pain management, surgery, and regenerative medicine.  By understanding and valuing the special role that pets play in a family Dr. Landry and team are genuine advocates for each pet's health and care.
