Overview

Animal Physical therapy is a new industry that has been getting wide recognition with the increase of pet adoption. Its main purpose is to provide rehabilitative care for animals that have undergone surgery, been injured or suffer from chronic pains, and is also a great way to speed up recovery in animals and to improve quality of life. It is a great career path with plenty of progression opportunities for individuals that love working with animals.

If you too are an animal lover aspiring to get into the animal physical therapy or related industry or simply want to learn animal physical therapy to administer it to your pets on our own, this course might just be the one for you were looking for. This course, with over 9 modules, will equip you with all the necessary knowledge and skills needed to provide effective physical therapy treatments to pets. You will be demonstrated on how to read signs of pain in animals to perform easy and enjoyable exercises.

The course curriculum will also touch on topics that will help you improve mobility of hips, knees and elbows of pets in a safe and compassionate way and to perform gentle exercises for animals suffering from stiff joints. This course is also set to enlighten you on physiotherapy and the situations to use and avoid it, followed up by some professional techniques to massage your pets. By the end of this course, you will have a well-grounded knowledge on animal physical therapy to progress within the industry or to help your pet live a healthy life.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that South London College has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria.
