Nestle is an especially lucky dog. Her owner isn’t just a passionate animal advocate, but he’s also a veterinarian. Dr. Tyler Simpson brought Nestle home as a baby while he was putting himself through vet school, and since that day Nestle has been Tyler’s constant companion.
She joins Tyler at work, hikes and swims with him every weekend, and never misses an opportunity for a long walk or game of catch in the backyard. On the rare occasion that Tyler has to go somewhere alone, Nestle always greets him at the door with a squeaky toy in her mouth and an undeniable expression of happiness on her face.
Unfortunately, enjoying such an active life took its toll on Nestle’s body. As a vet, Tyler took every precaution he could to preserve Nestle’s health and comfort, from managing her weight to supplementing with nutraceuticals. His diligence paid off for nearly a decade, but Nestle’s lifetime of excitement and movement finally caught up with her.
From Energetic Pup to Painful Senior Citizen
It took nine and a half years, but one day when he returned home, Nestle didn’t greet Tyler at the door.
No pattering of her paws, no squeaky toy dropping to the floor. Just silence. Tyler ran around frantically looking for Nestle and found her lying in her bed. As he walked through the door, she just looked up at him. She didn’t even move to come closer or lick Tyler hello. He instantly knew something was wrong.
Nestle, always a crazy, energetic lab, suddenly wasn’t. She may not have been a young pup anymore, but how had she become a senior citizen overnight? The wear and tear of countless tennis ball throws and frisbee tosses, dock dives and mountain climbs had finally revealed itself.
From that day on, Nestle’s arthritis aggressively stripped away her physical abilities. Tyler tried physical therapy, loaded up on NSAIDs for her pain relief, and contemplated the potential for surgery, but nothing stopped Nestle from experiencing more and more pain.
Soon she could barely put weight on her leg. Sitting down and standing up became excruciating. Going for a long walk, her favorite pastime, was out of the question. Even crossing the front door was a chore.
Why Did Tyler Choose Stem Cell Therapy for Nestle?
Arthritis had robbed Nestle of her spirit, her zest for life, and Tyler knew he couldn’t sit idly by and watch as traditional treatments failed his best friend. He also knew that if he didn’t find an alternative quickly, Nestle’s arthritis would cause a tear in her ACL and force her into surgery.
The problem was, no alternatives were readily available. So Tyler decided to use his veterinary knowledge and research experience to find one. He accidentally stumbled upon a few research articles describing the use of stem cell therapy to treat humans, and suddenly the seed was planted.
Tyler vigorously searched for any information regarding stem cell therapy in animals. He was lucky enough to connect with stem cell researchers who helped Nestle become one of the first dogs to receive a cutting-edge regenerative therapy known as HUC-DT stem cell therapy.
Nestle’s Procedure and Early Results
Tyler believed that stem cell therapy was Nestle’s last hope. The day of her procedure arrived, and Tyler crossed his fingers as a tiny IV bag full of human stem cells was infused into Nestle’s painful, aching joints. That one single bag of stem cells had the power to not just alleviate Nestle’s pain, but to also stimulate the healing processes her body had shut down long ago.
It didn’t take long at all for Tyler to start seeing incredible results. Only two weeks after Nestle’s stem cell therapy, Tyler came home and opened the front door to a sight and sound he had sorely missed — Nestle trotted up and greeted him with a squeaky toy in her mouth!
Nestle’s Recovery Surpassed Tyler’s Expectations
From that day on, Nestle continued to show improvements almost on a daily basis. She became more lively, alert, and energetic. Tyler could practically feel a new sense of brightness and happiness radiating from her body as she embraced the lifestyle he thought she’d lost forever.
The most significant change occurred about a month after Nestle’s stem cell therapy procedure. It was a normal weekend at home when Tyler heard his kids shouting and laughing in the backyard. He ran out to the patio to see his kids chasing Nestle around the yard as she played a game of keep away with the bocce ball.
It was a scene he hadn’t thought would ever be possible again, let alone just a month after Nestle’s stem cell procedure!
How Is Nestle Doing Today?
The only word to describe Nestle today is fantastic. She’s bright, alert, and happy, even as she battles a round of bone cancer treatment. A full year and a half after her first and only stem cell therapy, Nestle is happy, content, and enjoying life with Tyler and his family.
Are Stem Cells Right for My Dog?
It’s important to understand that stem cells aren’t pharmaceutical medications. They’re natural biological agents that are naturally drawn to inflammation. They respond to inflammation by secreting their own natural biochemicals that accelerate the natural healing process, reduce inflammation and pain, and repair damaged tissues.
However, since stem cell therapy doesn’t block a specific pathway like standard pharmaceutical drugs do, you can’t guarantee specifically measured results. This makes some pet owners uncomfortable, especially since we’re so used to medications promising specific results within exact time frames.
If you’re willing to think outside of the box and use this natural method to address your dog’s health concerns, stem cell therapy could be the right solution.
Stem Cell Therapy Is the Right Choice If Your Dog Has Inflammation
Inflammation is an important health marker because it indicates that significant damage could occur in the future. If NSAIDs help your dog feel better, then inflammation is hard at work and stem cells could be the right choice to combat pain and inflammation safely and naturally.
Stem Cell Therapy Is the Right Choice If Your Dog Has Arthritis
Your dog is also likely a candidate for stem cell therapy if your vet can easily identify areas of creaks and cracks during a physical exam. These creaks and cracks indicate arthritis, pain, and inflammation, all of which trigger swelling in the joints and extreme pain.
Though we can’t guarantee specific stem cell therapy results, we can guarantee that the majority of dogs we treat have impressive success stories like Nestle’s. Unlike standard drugs that carry a long list of dangerous side effects, stem cell therapy is virtually risk-free. Whether your dog is suffering from seizures, dementia, hip dysplasia, or intervertebral disc disease, stem cell therapy has the potential to reduce pain and accelerate healing.
If you want to join the growing number of pet owners who believe that stem cell therapy is worth a shot, or if you have your own dog at home who deserves a second chance like Nestle, get in touch with Stem Cells for Dogs now. We have all the information you need to get started with HUC-DT stem cell therapy and explore its potential to transform your dog’s quality of life.
