Happy Pet Stories

Pulpito

When I adopted Pulpito in Puerto Vallarta Mexico, he could not stand on his hind legs. He had been found on the street likely having been hit by a vehicle. He was about six months old and weighed 9 pounds. I took a chance adopting him, but the fact that he had an appetite gave me hope. When I got back to New York, I contacted Dr. Gladstein, whom I had met in New York before my departure for Mexico, knowing of her excellent reputation as a general veterinarian, as well as her specialty in orthopedic issues. The vet in Mexico had said he had a broken hip but I knew it was more than that. In fact, he had a crushed hip and knee on the right rear, and broken bones in his left rear leg too. His right rear leg was almost atrophied. Dr. Gladstein ordered Xrays and we discovered that his damage was quite extensive. While we consulted a surgeon, Dr. Gladstein recommended alternative therapies which turned out to be the much better decision - much more effective, less invasive and, of course, much less expensive. With laser therapy, A-cell therapy, electric stim, the right supplements (including those especially prepared by Dr. Gladstein), and proper food Pulpito has made a great recovery. You would never know this was the same dog I brought home months before. He weighs a healthy 15 pounds, runs, jumps, loves playing with other dogs, lifts both legs to do his business, and has a lot of energy. Thank you, Dr. Gladstein, for returning this wonderful pet to health. I feel very lucky to have him under your care.

I would like to thank Dr.Babette Gladstein for the wonderful treatment that my dog received for his ACL tear. The injury happened in September 2014 and we were immediately offered traditional surgery. My research lead me to this wonderful option of using prolotheraphy, the hardest part was to find veterinarian who can do it. Many vets that I called never even heard from it. I was very lucky to find Dr.Gladstein who has extensive experience in successfully using this modality. We started our prolo in September 2014 and received 4 treatments. My dog never displayed any visible discomfort from the treatment, but was noticeably getting better. His gate became very fluid and his strength significantly increased.

Dr.Gladstein followed prolo with stem cell injections and then PRP treatment.

The combination provided not only complete healing of the ACL but increased strength and endurance of my dog. We are able to continue our Schutzhund training and participate in competitions. Pictures speak a thousand words!
