Ipo is my younger, and usually non-problematic dog 

ipo - veterinary stem cell therapyAfter one Sunday afternoon, she came back limping on her left hind leg.  My stomach sank a little as I palpated her joints and put her through range of motion exercises.  IPO was diagnosed with a partial tear of her cranial cruciate ligament through x-rays.

... Stay tuned in 3-4 weeks for updates on her results.
