Housecall for Health: Walking Paralyzed Dogs
A new treatment is helping paralyzed pets walk again, and is offering a glimmer of hope for humans with spinal injuries.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Scientists have made a huge step in curing paralysis through dogs. A study at Cambridge University restored movement to dogs with severe spinal injuries by bridging breaks in the spine with specialized cells taken from their noses. Crippled dogs were able to walk and run after the treatment, and the trial is the first to demonstrate effective spinal cord repair.
Experts hope the technique will restore at least a small amount of movement in humans.
