    I accedently posted this in the wrong area... so sorry for the double post. :/

    My 1 1/2 year old Mastif/Newf/Sharpei/Lab (???, She was a rescue puppy) has very advanced elbow dysplasia. So far the only options my vet has given me have been elbow replacement or just pain relievers/ anti inflamitorys.
    I have been researcing other options online and found alot of articles on stem cells dramtically improving dysplasia in dogs.
    This is SUPER exciting to me!
    I just want to know if anyone has had this done to their dogs and how it turned out? Or just any info on it in general?

    Haha, i havent found anything else really about it. But i still have hope! I would much rather do stem cells than an entire surgery. I feel like it would be an easier healing process. And i have found 4 vets within an hour of my house that do this procedure. I need to call them actually...

    Again, if ANYONE knows of anything on this subject let me know!! pretty please.
