Dr Tee's Canine Physical Rehabilitation for Veterinary & Para-Veterinary Professionals

Practical Sessions Only

This course is designed to for Veterinary and Para-Veterinary professionals who have already completed the theory component of “Dr Tee’s Canine Physical Rehabilitation course” OR the “Certification in clinical integrative canine rehabilitation” from the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies (CIVT) 

The goal of the course is to provide course participants an opportunity to gain practical experience under the mentorship of Dr Tanya Grantham to enhance the small animal, physical rehabilitation skills of veterinary and para-veterinary professionals. This course is best suited to appropriately qualified veterinary hospital staff, who work in clinics where surgeries are performed and where the use of these treatment modalities can be used, to improve the surgical outcomes for the hospital patients. This course is also designed to teach the participants on how they can assist their patients and clients in the conservative management of a number of orthopaedic and neurological conditions. Some clients cannot afford surgery, and not all patients are “good” surgical patients. In a world where clients are connected to the internet, they are looking to their veterinarians for alternatives and assistance, which will have a positive impact on their pet’s quality of life. If this is you, or your practice then sign up for this course.
