Regenerative Medicine


    

Regenerative medicine is an intelligent technology that can be implemented in the field. What follows is a video series of Dr. Thaler's interesting journey to learn more about harvesting and implanting stem cells in horses. Dr. Thaler traveled to Vet-Stem Inc. in California to provide you with the "inside scoop" on stem cell isolation and culturing. The discussion with Vet-Stem's founder, Dr. Bob Harman, and Dr. Thaler is very informative, educational and exciting for horse owners. Dr. Thaler also introduces IRAP therapy which he has been performing in the field since 2006. He shares his insights as a field practitioner about the ease of application in the field.
