Tango Gets Treated with Stem Cells for Arthritis at 9 Years Old

Posted by Bob under Dog Arthritis

Meet Tango (right), a 9-year old Beagle with severe arthritis who, we are happy to report, is doing great 9 months after stem cell therapy changed his life.  Flutter, his English Setter buddy, is glad to have him back.

“In his 9th year, Tango’s arthritis had progressed to the point where he could barely walk.  Multiple tests, x-rays, and alternative therapies had no effect, and pain medications were barely keeping him mobile.  Sadly, I could see his days winding down dramatically.

Tango went in for stem cell therapy in September 2009 as a last resort.  He is now 10 years old and acts like he’s 3!  My feisty beagle is actually RUNNING, can keep up with his younger playmate, Flutter, on long hikes, and most days, he’s moving faster than I am. 

I am so very grateful to have my best buddy back!”

– Linda, Tango’s mom
