Case Studies 3
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.
Franz is a competitive canine athlete training for Schutzhund (protection dog) events. He to ACL in September 2014. His owner wanted an alternative to traditional therapy, so after evaluation, Franz received a total of four prolotherapy treatments, directly followed by stem ce injections and PRP (Protein Rich Platelets) treatments.
Franz did not exhibit visible discomfort during these treatments, and he quickly began to improve. His gate became very fluid and his strength significantly increased. Following the completion of the combination treatment regirru Franz experienced complete healing of the ACL tear and increased strength and endurance. Fr is now back to training and competing in Schutzhund events.
