Who is this course for?

Is this course for me?

If you are an RVN either looking at implementing successful and highly attended senior pet health clinics in practice or wanting to extend your service and offerings to an already established clinic, then this course is definitely for you.

Senior Pet health clinics are becoming a very popular clinic within the veterinary world. With pet’s living longer and owner’s researching on more ways to help their pet, clinics have never been more sought after.

Approximately 4 out of 5 older dogs suffer with age related osteoarthritis and many patients suffering from multiple diseases, it is crucial we are up to date with our knowledge to be able to give the best advise possible.

The aim of this course is to give you a brief but all encompassing introduction into how to set up succesful Senior pet clinics.

We will look at what the most common age-related conditions are, what monitoring tools we can use in the clinics, what practical advice we should be giving owners and then how we bring it all together and implement the clinics and have clients coming back for more.

All our courses include small bitesize videos with an accompanying workbook, so you don't have to write a single word (unless you want an excuse to get your stationary out 😉)

  • How is this course presented?

    Our courses are more than just a webinar.

    You will be taken through easy to digest bitesize chunks of learning, via a series of informative tutor video presented slides.

    Research shows, that online learning knowledge is easier to retain and absorb if video content is used rather than just audio, which is easier to just switch off from and become distracted. This way you can have a human connection to your tutor which is so important.

    So that's what we do...



Emily Ashdown

I am a qualified Animal Physiotherapist & Registered Veterinary Nurse. I have been working with animals since I was 16 where I started as a kennel assistant at a rescue kennels. I then trained in my local practice to become an RVN. I have worked at different practices including the RSPCA Birmingham animal hospital where I gained a lot of experience and even worked on the ITV show Give a pet a home! I shortly went back to private practice and Became a Deputy head nurse where I found my passion for rehabilitation by using class IV laser therapy. Whilst working in this practice I researched the different types of Lasers and set up clinics for primarily Geriatric patients. I became very passionate about rehabilitation and in particular the difference Laser therapy was making to many of my clients and with my own working cocker spaniels. I then decided to pursue a Diploma in Animal Physiotherapy with the college of Animal Physiotherapists. I started to work for Companion Animal health as a product specialist in primarily Laser therapy but also other rehabilitation products and regenerative medicine. I still work for Companion as I have a real passion for teaching practitioner’s how to use Laser successfully but I also bought my own Laser and set up Worcestershire Animal Therapy where I offer a mobile Physiotherapy and Laser service. I also Do some work for Bromsgrove Canine Hydro and Physio where I enjoy seeing many different cases. From time to time I also still Locum in emergency Vet clinics and I teach Animal First Aid. In my spare time I’m also a member of the IAAT Committee to help push the Musculoskeletal industry and I’m fully registered as a RAMP member. I also have a certificate in Feline Medicine and would like to educate further in rehabilitation for feline’s.
