Canine Palliative/Hospice Care & Oncology Massage: Online
How can we best support our canine companions when they are
at their most vulnerable: during and after cancer, chronic illness, or injury,
and at the end of life? In this online course, students learn approaches
to palliative and hospice care that complement the care provided by a
veterinarian. Students also receive an overview of canine cancer and learn
how massage and bodywork may help as an adjunct therapy.
A blend of theory and demonstration videos, this course covers topics such as the unique needs of the palliative and hospice patient, cancer myths and types of canine cancer, and guidelines for working with cancer patients as well as with patients who have other health-related conditions that require palliative and/or hospice care.
Additionally, students learn about pet parent education and empowerment and working with other caregivers. Special emphasis will be placed on learning safe and effective bodywork techniques that can be used by pet professionals and pet parents alike.
This is a Continuing Education course that can be taken at any time. No prerequisites. Appropriate for pet professionals and pet parents alike.
CE hours are available for NBCAAM.
