Rob was 17 years old when he injured himself in November of 2005. We arenít certain how the injury occurred, but he tore the lateral branch of the suspensory ligament on his left hind leg. He was lame, on stall rest, and in a lot of discomfort. After having the leg ultrasounded, our vet gave us a poor prognosis and NO hope for a full recovery. This was especially upsetting to my daughter and I. I desperately searched for other treatments and found Vet-Stem Cell therapy. He was treated with stem cells in January of 2006.
Rob has since made a full recovery and has not experienced any further lameness. The ultrasounds have shown the ligament to be completely healed, with no shorting or scar tissue. Rob is back to full dressage training. We are extremely pleased with the results of stem cell therapy and would highly recommend this treatment to other horse owners.
