Canine Physiotherapy courses
The Canine Rehabilitation Institute is pleased to be returning to Australia to offer its continuing education program.
We received such a positive response to our February 2016 Canine Sports Medicine course that we will be returning to Australia in October! We have scheduled our Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation course for October 14-18, 2016. If there is sufficient demand, we will continue with the remaining course in our certification program — The Canine Rehabilitation Therapist.
