About this course

Veterinary Physiotherapy: An introduction

Do you want to do more in practice to help your geriatric patients with the daily struggles associated with osteoarthritis? With a prevalence of *20% in adult dogs and 80% in geriatric dogs, and similar figures for cats, a large amount of patients coming through your practice will be suffering with osteoarthritis to some degree.

We will look at massage and use of effleurage and petrissage; passive range of movement exercises, stretching, improving proprioception and balance, strength building (with and without basic apparatus), exercise advice, and many environmental considerations that can be easily implemented.

The skills that you will learn on this course will enable you to provide a more thorough, rounded and rewarding service to your patients, and your clients will love the changes that they see in their pets too.

Your learning from the course will ultimately enable you to set up clinics to help owners help their pets.
