Quite an Adventure.

An adventure for our family. 

Go here for more information about
this company.
You can see the TV spots and newspaper articles
here.

This is something I would like to share with you animal lovers out there.
Some of you may have seen it on TV.
It is a wonderful program being used successfully in several dogs now and in extensive research for use in horses.

Our new grandson-in-law is the manager of the company manufacturing the product used by Vets all over the country.
His company is located in Nicholasville, Ky.
His name is Jeremy Delk and if you read this and are interested in this procedure for your beloved animal, you just need to call your vet and inquire about it.
Your Vet will then make arrangements to have the kits in his practice.

Jeremy and Cindy own racehorses and became interested in this company due to the work being done to make it available for horses.
It is going to happen and already is to some extent.

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - In-house stem cell therapy - another medical first for Kentucky. The first in-house stem cell processing system is being used to treat animals here in Kentucky and humans could soon benefit.
The company that developed this breakthrough technology is headquarter in Nicholasville, Kentucky. And so far the results of the therapy are impressive.
This process avoids that controversial debate about using embryonic stem cells, and could add years to your dogs life.
Getting stem cells from your own fat used to require waiting weeks for the cells to be processed, until now.
Cooper, a 7-year-old Golden Retriever, had a torn ACL in both sides of his hinds - or knees.
He had fat-derived stem cell therapy at the Finchville animal clinic several weeks ago. Fat was removed from his side, and his own stem cells extracted from the fat. Then his own stem cells were injected into the damaged area to grow new tissue.
That's not new - what is new is the process that is used to extract the stem cells. A new high tech kit, that is used to process the cells on site, without having to send the tissue off to a lab for processing.
In fact, sending the tissue off to a lab and waiting weeks for the stem cells to be ready to be injected back into the body can result in the loss of up to 40% or more of the precious cells, compromising the result.
This technique saves more cells, is more affordable, and is showing an amazing outcome.
The Adipose Stem Cell Processing kit is made by a company whose national headquarters is in Nicholasville, Kentucky. Jeremy Delk is the managing director of Medivet.
"What we've done is developed the world's first in house stem cell procedure kit - it allows veterinarians to do this procedure in house on the same day," said Delk.
The process is working so well in dogs, that vets are now using it in horses.
And in the near future, medical doctors could use it to treat humans.
Dr. Cathy White, the veterinarian at the Finchville Animal Clinic says she is pleased with how well the therapy is working on the first dog to undergo the procedure, and says it won't be long before the process is used in human therapy.
"What a wonderful thing to be able to know that in a few years, it's gonna be humans in a few years. Now people getting knee replacements, getting hip replacements, this is going to be the modality of the future. There's no questions about it.", says White.
Though this procedure is less expensive than the conventional stem cell therapy, where tissue is sent off to be processed, it's still pricey. It's $1,800 - compared to several thousand. But for a young dog who has many years left, owners say it's worth every cent.

Glad you've got relief from your tendinitis and back issues. The idea of adipose stem cell processing is totally cool!! I've got more than enough adipose tissue to go around!

That's impressive. I guess you can make progress more quickly with animals than humans because of the rigorous testing for humans.
