So good to see that Riley is doing so well.

Have to say, watching the first couple videos made me cry. Brought back memories of my Alexi who had DM.

Love the last video of Riley having a good time!

Being able to demonstrate such dramatic improvement with stem cell therapy also has huge implications for humans with neurological disease and spinal cord injuries.

This is truly incredible - thank you for posting this Rebel!

Is there a place where people can get more information?

Not yet, this treatment is very experimental. Two GSDs were treated up to date (Riley being one of them). The other GSD showed dramatic improvement as well after 4 treatments. His disease was more advanced.

It's nothing short of a miracle. I lost Tasha, my first GSD, to DM and am almost in tears that there may finally be something on the horizon that will spare dogs and their owners from the heartbreak of this debilitating disease.

Thanks for posting this!!!

I agree, I am in awe myself, seeing a dog that was falling down the stairs jumping into a pretty high truck. I have seen the video of a mouse improving, but this is a big animal. And thinking of the hope the treatment offers many animals and humans - it is simply humbling. I am sure everybody who lost a dog to DM (i did) will understand.

This is so new that it has not been published anywhere yet (I just made the movie last week). There is another GSD who is a similar amazing success story (I have his movie), but that 's it. I am hoping that these successes will help raising funds to broaden the research.
