Academy of Physical Rehabilitation Veterinary Technicians - APRVT


Hi guys. I was hoping to get some help with a case. My cousin's dog was diagnosed with FCE. What are some physical therapy activities she can do to help her? I was thinking range of motion, massage, and underwater treadmill
Hello there! Looking for some advice. I am half way through the CCRP program and need to select an elective for my next section. The 2 I narrowed it down to from those offered was canine pain management or treatment of osteoarthritis. Both would allow me certification in said subject. Both cost the same amount and both are extremely interesting. Just wanted to hear what those in the field would recommend since I can only take 1 at this time. Thanks in advance!
Does anyone have any thoughts on this program? I've heard some concerns from dog trainers but have not yet heard anything from the veterinary side and I get asked about it periodically. Do you think this would be a worthwhile investment for a tech getting started in rehab and fitness?

Hey friends!!! I get to open up my rehab clinic again in January, we had some flooring issues. Anyway, I want to do a Grand Re-Opening and Open House, what are some ideas you think would be great? I'm planning on contacting some of our reps for prizes and gift certificates, candy (duh), Starbucks cards, a Pooch Kissing Booth, Guess how many____, gift basket raffle. Anything else you can think of?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I was gonna do a few demos of what we do with the treadmill and floor work too.
I'm wondering how clinics set up laser packages. Do you do it by site, by time, pricing? I know everywhere is a little different. Currently we charge $45 flat no matter how many sites or how long it takes. We want to change it up a bit so any information would be greatly appreciated. We have a class 4 laser fyi. Thanks!!
I'm interested in attending Healing Oasis. Has anyone attended?

Things are changing day by day with COVID19, but one thing that doesn't change is that our patients will still be dealing with pain and discomfort. We need to help our patients stay comfortable and help our clients stay calm and understand what they can do for their pets and how we can help in some restricted capacities.
