The procedure costs $2,500, which may sound like a lot, but it is cheaper than a hip replacement, and has a shorter recovery time. This stem cell therapy has an 85% success rate, which is great news for Lola, who is walking and running again without pain.

Stem cell therapy for dogs
Stem cell are offering new promise to help dogs in pain. Check out this story of Lola, who had debilitating arthritis, and was barely about to walk. Lola was lucky that her person and vet knew about a new stem cell treatment where they take cells from the dogs fat and transform it into joint tissue. How amazing is that?
