Physiotherapy has greatly proven to help injuries, disability and illnesses through movement and exercises and is starting to gain wide attention amongst pet owners as well. If you love working with and helping animals through physiotherapy, then this Advanced Diploma in pet Physical Therapy – Level 3 might just be the one for you. This course hosts high quality learning materials that will thoroughly delve into the concept of pet physical care to mold you into a highly sought after professional that you wish for.

Starting with an introduction to the concept of animal physical therapy, this course will look into the importance of it in treating animals. You will then learn the situations in which to use physiotherapy and when not to, followed by modules that will focus on the issues in animals that can be managed using physiotherapy.

To carry out a physiotherapy session, it is first important to assess the condition of the pet in question. Therefore, this course will guide you on how to decide if the animal needs physical therapy after assessing. This course has also included a few modules that will enlighten you on how to build partnerships with veterinary professionals to offer physiotherapy services to animals that might require them.
