Well, it’s Day 25 and I’m happy with the results so won’t wait any longer. I’ve been using StemEquine, a stem cell enhancer designed for horses, with Cliffy. It’s a new product having only been on the market for a couple of years.
It’s not a cure for his arthritis. He still has days where he is stiff and can’t use the leg like he used to. But he is so much happier than he was, that alone makes the difference. I haven’t resorted to Bute or steroid injections. I might start adding a glucosomine supplement back to his diet now that the “test run” is over.
StemEquine is pretty palatable; it’s a powder that I just mix with his feed and he eats it right up. It contains a plant that induces the release of Cliffy’s own stem cells which are already present in his body. I don’t know the details — I just know it has made a difference for us. But those who would like more info can check out this FAQ page.
I like it so well that I decided to become a distributor so I can get discount rates for this and for StemEnhance for my dad to try. (They make human and pet products too.)
In my humble opinion this is definitely worth a shot and I would love to hear results from other people.
Thanks everyone for all the good thoughts and wishes for Cliffy and me. You guys are the best!
