My 8 month old puppy who is an American Bulldog was diagnosed with double hip dysplasia and instead of surgery I am considering stem cell therapy. I have been researching this topic but not very clear on some of it. Is STEM therapy a good option?

My dog limps (her hind right leg) when she first wakes up but moves perfectly fine after awhile. Do you think she has something like arthritis? We cannot afford to go to the vet and I would like to avoid xrays unless you think it necessary.
