Making the decision to opt for stem cell therapy turned out to be hugely successful for Alpha. We are delighted that not only has Alpha returned to work but he has gone on to exceed our expectations as an advanced endurance horse.

We did stem cell therapy on a horse called Runatim who was a big heavy topped horse. Jeremy Swan from Bourton Vale Equine Clinic did it in January 2005 and he ran that year in December over hurdles. We stuck completely to the exercising instructions given to us and since it was done he has never had a problem with that leg. In fact, if you were to run your hand down his front legs you would not be able to tell. He went on to win a point to point and is now happily retired at home as a general hack. Personally I would have no hesitation in recommending stem cell treatment but, as with any injury, it must be given time.

The transformation is very impressive and the horse seems to be improving with each application. Chancellor is staying consistently sound and has been able to regain his early promise.

I have used the E-PET system to treat a variety of soft tissue injuries in equine patients over the last 12 months. I find the system easy to use, and have seen good results. I believe that following administration of E-PET, tendon and ligament healing is faster and of better quality than after rest alone or with other therapies such as extracorporeal shock wave treatment.

To be honest initially I was rather anxious about trying stem cell but felt I had nothing to lose because in my mind poor Harley was already a write off. I am so pleased that we went ahead with the treatment. His recovery has been incredible and his performance feels as good as ever. Last season was amazing and I am really looking forward to this year – starting with the South of England later this month. I would definitely use stem cell therapy again.

Chancellor felt like a different horse at Epsom. He was a horse who was difficult to keep right for any length of time but the Hoof Support seems to have done the trick.

Stem cell therapy is real advancement in the treatment of tendonitis. The ultrasonographic and clinical improvement of the tendon is highly noticeable.

E-PET provides a very convenient way of essentially providing a growth factor therapy for a variety of soft tissue injuries. The principle of the treatment is to accelerate healing by stimulating cell proliferation and matrix synthesis.

I am highly delighted with the results of the stem cell treatment. The help I’ve received has been second to none. You would hardly even notice the horse has had a tendon strain.
Penny Lownds - Trainer
I am convinced of the potential of stem cell technology in the treatment of tendon and ligament damage in horses.

A tendon injury for a dressage horse used to be the end of the road, now we are getting elastic repairs and that means most horses can return to full competition work. It is a life saver.

Mr Cool’s treatment is progressing extremely well, we’re delighted with his progress …this treatment is a great improvement
Martin Pipe CBE – Champion Trainer
I used E-PET on a 5-year-old Warmblood with sudden onset hind limb lameness that occurred during a dressage training session. A lameness work-up revealed desmitis of the medial collateral ligament of the coffin joint. Only the proximal portion of the lesion was visible with ultrasound, as the distal part was within the hoof capsule. In my opinion, this injury usually carries poor prognosis. After intra-lesional injection with E-PET and rest, followed by controlled exercise the horse is now back in work and doing well. I feel the E-PET improved this horse’s prognosis dramatically. I have also used E-PET on a number of check and suspensory ligaments with good success and believe it improves prognosis and speed of return to work.

We had only owned Zoe for 6 weeks when she suffered a 30% tear to her deep digital flexor tendon whilst messing about in the field. We were given several options of treatment but the vet felt that as it was such a new injury and so large a tear that stem cell therapy would be the best way to treat her as it would give her a good chance of returning to full work and staying sound. She had the stem cells implanted and we then began the year long rehabilitation process. She came back to full fitness and won her first 2 day event 20 months later. Her scan results showed that the tendon had healed and there was no sign of damage. I would thoroughly recommend stem cell therapy as a treatment as I feel it gives a much stronger repair to the tendon.

I thought you might be interested in the results I have had, using your hoof supports.
I own a 16.2hh TB that I bought as a first horse for my daughter 5 years ago. Admittedly he had very flat feet but as he was obviously badly in need of shoeing I assumed that good regular shoeing would sort them out.
He was very often lame, normally because of corns but worried there might be a more sinister reason I had him x-rayed and when nothing showed, egg bars were fitted to try and help, to no avail.
I was then recommended your hoof supports and although I was unsure, when they were fully explained and I heard about the effect it had on the tubules in the foot I thought it would be worth a try.
I have been using them for approximately 2 years and there have been significant changes. The initial support they gave, meant enough growth in the foot to allow us to work him without the constant refitting of lost shoes and severe bruising. We were then able to remove the shoes for 2 1/2 months to harden and shape the foot. We have had only one small corn since using them and this was easily removed and the shoes replaced immediately.
His heels were so flat there was no daylight between them and the ground. You can now get your finger beneath. He is now in full work, fitter and sounder than he has ever been, been hunted, done all Pony Club activities and has been selected for the Area Horse Trials where he will be competing in the Open.
I am over the moon I tried them as I am convinced that without them a very talented TB with a delightful temperament would have been consigned to the scrap heap because of his feet.
