ABWAK Zoo Animal Osteopathy Workshop
Tony Nevin has been providing osteopathic care for both humans and animals for over 30 years. In this exclusive 1-day workshop, aimed specifically at animal-care professionals, Tony will outline the principles of osteopathy to treat musculo-skeletal problems in mammals, birds and reptiles. The day will include both class room work and practical hands-on sessions with some of Chessington’s resident stock.
Topics covered will include:
- Recognising changes in body language, behaviour and gait and the use of such in diagnosis.
- Thermal imaging to help diagnose musculo-skeletal complaints.
- Formulation of treatment plans.
- Target training to promote muscle exercise.
- Enclosure design to promote physical wellbeing.
This CPD training, brought to you by ABWAK, is a rare opportunity to gain an insight into this niche subject area, carrying the prospect of tangible benefits to the animal welfare at your collection.
