It never ceases to amaze me. This is the video of his after- treatment neurological exam.

This is amazing!Thank you so much for sharing. The videos have really made an impact in me, and I think will have the same impact on many others.

To think that THIS much improvement can be seen in Riley, and yet, there are still people who refuse to look at this advancement fairly and give it a due scientific research process.

I hope when and if I ever deal with disorders that can be treated via stem cell therapy, it will be a more available procedure.

Riley continues to do well several months after the last treatment.
He was re-evaluated last week by the treating veterinarian and he is doing great for an 11.5 yo GSD.

I feel the same, I think it is the future of medicine. It is a pity that there are so many hurdles in research on humans.

Hi all, I am new to this Forum and need some help for my GSD.

My boy Hans (9yrs old) has DM and I am looking for any and all information on the stem cell Therapy. Also, any information on vitamins or any thing else would be appreciated. I have him in a Biko Brace now to be able to exercise him more and that seems to be helping. I have had to put boots on both back feet because of dragging and wearing the nails down to bleeding. They also seem to be helping and he is such a good boy about anything I put on him. I also take him swimming every other day which he loves!

DM is such a terrible disease, I'm sorry that you are dealing with it.

You might need to pm the OP about the stem cell question, if she doesn't see this post later. My understanding is that this is still in the experimental phase, but it's VERY exciting.

There is a Health Sticky at the top of the health forum, which has information DM and other spinal conditions. You will have to scroll down and find the actual thread, or do a search in the page, the links got messed up when the board changed over.

There is also some information here:
