This course will provide the participant with a dissection lab in which participants will be guided through a clinically supervised dissection of the dog and will have access to anatomical teaching specimens. A palpation lab on live dogs is included to review important anatomical structures for rehabilitation. Laboratory experiences for selected physical agent modalities used in canine physical rehabilitation are incorporated including superficial heating and cooling agents, therapeutic ultrasound, extracorporeal shockwave treatment, laser therapy, and electrical stimulation. This course also provides the participant with the basic clinical skills necessary to prescribe and provide therapeutic exercise programs for dogs. Topics covered include exercise physiology, range of motion and stretching, gait training, strengthening exercises, balance and proprioceptive exercises, aquatic exercises, and exercises for wellness/prevention. Outcome measures (goniometry, circumferential measurements, etc.) will also be practiced in this course. Bandaging and orthopedic and neurological evaluation/assessment of the rehabilitation patient will also be performed with supervision.

PrerequisitesCompletion of Canine I and Canine II PT online lecturesand participant must be a Veterinarian, Veterinary Technician, Physical Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistant, Occupational Therapist or an actively enrolled student in one of these fields. Breaks & Lunches are included. Participants will be assigned to a lab group. Depending on lab group size groups could have 1/2 day off however participants should plan to attend all full days. This course is required for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants and actively enrolled students in these fields. This course is not required of Veterinarians, Veterinary Technicians or actively enrolled students in one of these fields but it can be used to fulfill the Canine V requirement.
