• GOFUND ME Stem Cells for Charlie's Back


Info on the procedure at

Let's give 7 year old Charlie "The Wonder Pup" every opportunity to walk again. Charlie's story began on January 29, 2018 when he went down in his back with IVDD. He was taken to NC State Veterinary School for MRI's and other testing and had surgery on January 31, 2018 to attempt the repair of the discs that were damaged causing him not to be able to use his back legs. Wanda's Little Rescues in Raleigh, NC stepped in for his after care and to start the rehabilitation process. Charlie is a happy, healthy dachshund who is determined to walk again and we here at Wanda's Little Rescues see that hope and fight in his eyes and body language every day. Charlie has since gone through acupuncture, laser treatments, water therapy and electro nerve stimulation since surgery, which he has shown great potential by being able to wag his tail, he has great reflex and he will bark when he needs to poop. This shows the great promise that this amazing baby has. Wanda's Little Rescues has done a lot of research on stem cell therapy and the success rate that this has had on IVDD babies and Charlie is ready for his next adventure in the healing process. Dr. Garner of Safari Veterinary Hospital in League City, Texas would surgically open the scar from the previous surgery, then place very potent neutral stem cells on top of the lesion, holding them in place with gel foam. Dr. Garner has performed this procedure several times with great success.
