Soft Tissue Injury and Repair : Maintaining Your Dog's Health online course

Soft tissue injuries that are untreated or not managed correctly, can last a lifetime in a dog’s body, as well as being complicit in forming compensation and postural problems; these can result in an ongoing lameness where the cause can be difficult to identify.  


This 2 hour specialist course explains what happens when muscle and fascia are damaged, and the effects on the body. It also examines the negative impact of our human environment and how common activities can lead to repetitive strain injuries.


You'll learn how to help protect, maintain and enhance your dog's musculoskeletal health.
