Course Dates: June 3-6, 2023

Prerequisites: This course is open to veterinarians, physiotherapists and veterinary technicians/nurses. Veterinary students may take this course any time after their first year of veterinary school. Physiotherapy students may register for this course, but can't start the course until after they graduate and are licensed. Veterinary technicians/nurses must submit an Employment Agreement Letter indicating that there is a veterinarian or physical therapist either certified in canine rehabilitation working in their practice or registered for Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation.

Pre-Course Work: All students will have 17 hours of pre-course online work to complete before the in-person session. We will send you instructions for accessing the pre-course work approximately 45 days before the start of class.

Course Description: Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation provides students with a fundamental understanding of canine anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. Students build relevant structures on canine skeletons using clay and get hands-on experience palpating live canines. Common orthopedic and neurological disorders of the canine patient are covered including both conservative and surgical treatment options. Canine rehabilitation therapies that apply traditional physiotherapy techniques including manual therapies, therapeutic exercise, and physical modalities are taught along with ways they can be incorporated into veterinary practice.
