This course is designed for Veterinarians, Registered Veterinary Technicians, Veterinary Assistants, and  Physiotherapists working in Animal Rehabilitation.  

Rehabilitation is fairly new to the veterinary world, and a significant number of canine patients are not receiving adequate post-operative rehabilitation.  Most veterinary clinics and clients do not have access to animal rehab professionals, so this course is the next best thing!

This course will take you through the phases of healing, the principles of building a rehab program, how to use a laser for the best post-operative outcomes and an easy to follow, step-by-step 12 week exercise program.  We even include owner handouts and a Pre-Op Guide to put your own logo on.  This course can be done at any time, at your own pace.  

Improve patient outcomes and clinic incomes by creating your own Post-Op CCL program.

This course has been approved for 6 Continuing Education credits from the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the different phases of healing and how rehab principles apply in each phase
  • Learn common acupuncture points to use with your laser to improve patient outcomes
  • Create a Pre-Op Guide for owners to help prepare the home and perform Passive Range of Motion and Massage
  • Follow a 12-week exercise program which includes concentric, eccentric and isometric exercises, proprioception and balance training and strength and power exercises
  • Learn how to implement a rehab program into your own practice to improve surgical outcomes, reduce the percentage of contra-lateral CCL rupture, and create rehab income
