Stem Cell Injections

We decided to go ahead with the Stem Cell injections through the company Vet-Stem.  Though expensive, they carry virtually zero risk, aside from a site infection, in comparison to the surgery.

Vet4 will gather the cells from his rear and stitch up the incisions made.  From there, if there are enough cells, the culture will be sent to the lab, and in about two days, they are able to be injected into the leg!

UPDATE:

There were enough Stem Cells to inject!  Chance is doing extremely well and is able to come home in a few days!!!

I asked if Vet4 could get Chance supportive back shoes before he left and he said he would.

Time to set up a trailer and get his stall ready in Sperryville!!!!
