Stem-cell therapy used on Mid-Mo dog
JC veterinarian performs first surgery of its kind
Wednesday, December 15, 2010
Animal stem-cell surgery was performed in a clinic for the first time in Missouri last Friday.
Ellie, a 4-year-old Labrador Retriever, had developed signs of osteoarthritis and tendonitis in her elbow.
For a young dog, knee or elbow replacement was not the best option.
