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.All of our courses are 100% online, and run over a set period as a group. You can access the course lectures, guidelines and materials on our friendly learning platform at any time during the course, and complete work at your own pace.Courses are fully tutored and our discussion-based approach means that you can discuss topics with your peers and share problems and solutions, with the input, guidance and support of your tutor throughout. You will receive feedback on coursework, and all of our CPD is certified as formal/assessed distance learning.
