About this course
Do you want to do more in practice to help your geriatric patients with the daily struggles associated with osteoarthritis?
With a great prevalence of osteoarthritis 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.
