Luna and Lolita were born in March 2012 and came to us when they were 8 weeks old. They belong to our little family of four like a fifth and a sixth cog. We tried to take really good care of them, but we were quite inexperienced. The elbow pain the darker-colored dog suffered from was already apparent in the first winter of her life, and, by next spring, she had serious difficulties standing up (the cheerful, always lively puppy turned into a bad-tempered, hardly moving pup), while the other puppy was growing healthily. As recommended by others, we contacted veterinarian Dr. Ottó Sebő in Makó, who operated on both elbow joints of Luna in the early summer of 2014. Following surgery, Luna recovered rapidly, and, for approximately half a year, there were no problems, but, after that, pain in the legs and difficulties standing up recurred. At the vet’s suggestion, we joined the Stem CellX (mesenchymal stem cell) transplantation program with great expectations and fear.
From the third month following the transplantation, Luna has been the totally symptom-free, smiling doggie she once was. Just like her naughty sister, she has become a happy, extremely playful team member of our family (showing almost human characteristics). She has no difficulty whatsoever in moving; she swims very well, (while Lolita can only paddle). They race across the garden in huge leaps and wrestle, and, though they own the whole court, our garden remains awesome, and we love them for that. We hope Luna will remain healthy and happy all her life, and we owe many thanks to Stem CellX for this opportunity!
Stem cells were injected into the joints of Málna, a young English Bulldog, to promote regeneration following cartilage tear. Ever since, she has been speeding with an energy exceeding that of her breed.
