Default New Treatment for Canine Arthritis

Dear Friends, I'm new to this website, but am so glad to find it, and hope to make many friends through it.
I don't know if any of you have heard of the newest technology available for treating canine arthritis. It's being offered after 2.5years of private canine studies in Colorado.

This same technology has been used successfully on the EQUINE'S all over America and Europe for the last 8yrs. You can go to any equine website or even type in: http://www.IRAP Therapy.com and come up with so many sites that offer the use of this product for horses all over the country.

This product is called: IRAP, (Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein). It is AUTOLOGOUS Conditioned Serum, meaning it is the animal's own blood, completely natural with NO additives or chemicals.

Through special incubation and processing the anti-inflammatory and growth factors are extracted from the serum, and injected into the affected joint or ligamentous tissue. The mechanism of the IRAP is to "block" the receptors in the joints or tissues from accepting the destructive cascade of properties that cause the arthritic process. As the anti-inflammatory effects take place, the pain is relieved, and the body is allowed to try and repair itself.

In our studies, we have seen effects lasting up to one year. These effects are: ridding of the pain and inflammation with return to moderate lifestyle. Many times there is no need for additional supportive medications with this treatment. We have had 100% success rate treating the hips, elbows, LS Joint, and ligamentous tissues.

By the way, I'm waiting on a GS puppy that is still a gleam in his daddy's eye. Hopefully I'll have my new soulmate by September! Wish me luck.

Good going girlfriend! As I had stated in my introduction , there are many EQUINE websites available to sing the praises of IRAP Therapy.

Is IRAP therapy out of reach for people on limited income? Is it a one-time thing?

Maggie Rose Lee, That's an incredible equine hospital you linked to. My daughter's an animal science under grad, and I forwarded it to her just now.

I haven't ever calculated the cost of the Adequan over 2 years because there were times a friend gave me some to use but would be interested to see that.

There is also the fairly new VetStem stuff http://www.vet-stem.com/ but this sounds interesting and long lasting too. Used in humans, too?

I swear, if you give it to a horse, I will try it!

Hey everyone! I just got back online, (my deer chihuahua was sleeping in!). I'm so excited about all the responses. Please refer to this link and we can talk further. GOOGLE: OSSEUS ENTERPRISES.com.

Believe it or not, this came from Europe as they use it on people successfully there for the last 15years on hips, knees, and spine's.
It came here 8years ago for the EQUINE's as I spoke of before.

If you have any trouble with the link, please PM me and we'll get together.
