We Got Your Back! A Talk and Walk

Tomorrow, August 30th is National Holistic Pet Day!

To celebrate our furry companions, we are partnering with Davis Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center for a event called "We Got Your Back: A Talk and Walk."

The goal of this event is to educate the public about the benefits of chiropractic adjustments in humans and animals. Dr. Buchoff of Holistic Pet Care and Dr. Raymondi of Davis Chiropractic will share their expertise. In addition, we will be demonstrating proper lifting and handling technique and end the evening with a leisurely walk around Brookdale Dog Park in Montclair, NJ.

Admission is FREE.

Come on out and bring your friends and your dog. It's a nice way to unwind before Labor Day weekend.

Again, "We Got Your Back" is TOMORROW, August 30th.
7:00-8:00PM, 20 Bellvue Ave Montclair, NJ (Brookdale Dog Park)

The Magic Healing of Stem Cell Therapy

Brusier Raffiani, a ten-year-old chocolate labrador retriever, presented to our clinic in April of 2012 with arthritis, limping, and severe pain. After exhausting multiple treatments that seemed to be palliative and partially effective, his owner opted to do Vet-Stem Cell Therapy in July of 2012. Vet-Stem also has their own blog.

The process of stem cell therapy involves harvesting the falciform ligament inside the patient's abdomen and sending the specimen to the VetStem lab in California. They extract the stem cells from the adipose tissue and send them back in syringes within the next day. Depending on the animal's case, stem cells may be injected directly into the joints and also intravenously.

Why does this work? Stem cells are pluripotent, meaning that they are versatile and can take on whatever role is most needed. If an animal suffers from osteoarthritis, stem cells will act to rebuild the joints affected, removing the cause of inflammation, and drastically decreasing pain. Scientific literature claims the effectiveness of stem cell therapy against some cancers. Dr. Buchoff has seen this firsthand in a case of hemangiosarcoma of the spleen.

Bruiser has seen dramatic results in only a short few weeks. Here is his owner, Beri's testimonial:

In Bruiser's case, he now is happy, care-free, and playing like a puppy again!
