Local pooch revived with stem cell treatment, Statesman reports

Susie Lynch and her Newfoundland dog Samson (in photo at right) at their home on Tuesday, March 3, 2009. Samson recently underwent a new procedure to treat arthritis in dogs, where a veterinarian took some of his fat, isolated the stem cells inside of it and then reinjected the cells into areas in his legs where he was suffering from arthritis. Lynch says he has greatly improved from the procedure. Read the story by Claire Osborn on the Statesman website
