Wobblers Goldic Injections a Success!

My 9 year old Doberman Max was diagnosed with Wobbler Disease in April 2017. After finding out that surgery with a combination of medication was not going to get him back to 100% I was determined to find another solution. In a short period of time, Max was unable to walk - a wagon is how we were taking him outside for potty breaks.

In June/2017 I travelled to Cincinnati, Ohio to have Max injected "Goldic" - a revolutionay treatment offered by Arthrogen USA, that is less invasive than surgery, or long term use of medication. After 4 injections, I'm happy to say that Max is now "CURED" of Wobbler disease.

It is my hopes that other people who experience this horrible disease in larger breed dogs, have this option available to them, where they can use it locally at a vet here in Canada. The procedure is very simple, and there is no need for surgery or medication. Great part it is, it's 'affordable' - the cost of the MRI that I needed to get done at St. Joseph hospital in London, Ont.

If anyone needs more info please feel free to message me.

Wobblers

Wow.... Having dealt with paralyzing CVI (non-Wobblers) in a young dog, I find this amazing. We treated our boy with surgery, laser therapy, acupuncture and meds. He's been on Prednisone or a derivative his entire life. He is now a happy heathy senior and his disease has been in remission for most of his life.

I have heard of this procedure, but I have never heard a first hand testimony about its effectiveness. Actually, involving stem cell regeneration, it seemed quite experimental.

In case anyone is as interested as I am, here is their website. It pretty much explains everything: https://arthrogenusa.com

Thanks!

Hi John...yes it is the future of medicine - regeneration without surgery or medication. Max was on Prednisone and it made him quite lethargic and actively peeing. By the time I arrived for his treatment in Cincinnati he could't walk at all. So it developed quickly for him after he was diagnosed in April timeframe.

Either way, he is cured now thankfully and enjoying life again. That wagon is now collecting dust.

Goldic does more than cure wobbler disease btw -

I actually have an intellectually vested interest, over and above Sheriff's history, I am curious about the possibility of human use.

This year, I had both a total hip and knee replacement due to severe Osteoarthritis. I am still looking at a patella (knee cap) replacement. This was mostly due to excessive abuse of my joints due to my athletically joint abusive lifestyle. Soccer, tennis, full contact martial arts, extreme aerobic exercise, long distance cycling and the like. There was traumatic injury involved, but most was "wear and tear". Probably some genetic issues also. I am 64 yo and have been dealing with these issues since I was a kid.

My offered solutions were negligible.... Pain killers, half-ass PT, NSAIDS, etc. So... I ended up with joint replacements.

It hasn't been easy, but I can't complain. I can walk again and am looking forward to accelerating my physical exercise.

The bottom line, is that the concept of cell regeneration interests me.

Just a note here so that there is no confusion. Degenerative Myelopathy is NOT the same as Wobblers Disease. Lately there seems to be confusion about this--recently there was a gene test developed for Degenerative Myelopathy (and I think it only covers certain breeds) but it and Wobblers are two different problems.

Frank, I'm thrilled for you and your boy! Advances in stem cell treatments for a whole array of problems are really exciting to me. The more repairs that can be made by utilizing the bodies own means the better off we'll all be.

Thank you for sharing your experience! I had a Dane with Wobblers that we treated with surgery, even though the surgery was successful I wish this option had been available or that I had known about it when he was diagnosed.
