Canine Rehabilitation

AIMLA is proud to announce that we are now offering the following online courses powered by Northeast Seminars from The University of Tennessee: The Certificate Program in Canine Rehabilitation:

Companion Animal Pain Management Certificate Program – 25 CE Hours

This course is designed to help veterinarians and vet techs identify the pathologies that will benefit from effective pain management practices.  It provides an in-depth discussion of the neurobiology of acute and chronic pain.

Osteoarthritis Case Manager Certificate Program – 20 CE Hours

The purpose of the University of Tennessee Arthritis Case Manager Course is to improve the care and quality of life of dogs with osteoarthritis by having a designated case manager to help guide treatment and communicate with the owner. Osteoarthritis is a common and significant condition; approximately 20% of all adult dogs are afflicted. This course is designed to help identify dogs with this debilitating disease earlier to allow treatment designed to improve clinical function and extend quality of life. This program embraces the multimodal treatment of arthritis and provides an evidence-based approach to treatment options. Further, this course embraces the team approach to osteoarthritis, recognizing the valuable roles of the veterinarian, veterinary technician, and owner in managing each case.
