(WLIO) - To many people pets are like children, and owners would go to the ends of the Earth to protect them.

This is the case for Susan and Tim Enright.

Their 5-year-old chocolate lab, Norman, had a stroke in April that left him paralyzed.

Now the Enrights are hoping that a cutting edge medical treatment might help Norman recover.

Veterinarian Dr. Ronald Anders is performing stem cells treatments to help restore movement in the dog's body.

Dr. Anders used fat cells and sent them to a lab to be duplicated, thus creating 4 million stem cells. The cells are then sent back and injected into Norman.

The procedures may cost up to $2,250, but for the Enrights it's worth every penny.
