What our students say...

Maggie P.
Holistic Vet
Montana USA

I’m loving the neurophysiology lectures. In fact the 3D modules used to show the nerves as they come down the limbs and the path of the cranial nn in the skull are Great Visuals for an osteopath. The description of a nerve action potential/conduction is explained better in this course than it was in my college.

Postgraduate Diploma in Canine Osteopathy

(Equine & Canine streams)

585 hours
$ 2,000.00 USD

Prof. Stuart McGregor explains the physiological principles of the Osteopathic Articular Balancing method used by animal osteopaths in the treatment of canines and equines alike.

Step inside the Canine Neurophysiology course at LCAO and explore an eLearning platform that is interactive, comprehensive and easy-to-use.

Have a peek inside a video-lesson led by Professor Stuart McGregor

"In our treatment, there is something we call ‘intent'. This is where we apply the techniques intending to enable healing. We imagine ourselves inside the tissues being treated and then bring about positive change."

- Prof. Stuart McGregor, DO, Animal Osteopath, UK

"One of the main principles in osteopathic medicine is that treatment should restore health to the local tissues. This involves the restoration of blood supply, nerve supply, and lymphatic drainage. Where any of these are absent, the tissues can only be in poor health."

- Prof. Stuart McGregor, DO, Animal Osteopath, UK

"Osteopathic techniques are safe and non-controversial in their nature and actually work better on animals than they do on humans. This is entirely down to the better biomechanics of the pronograde four-legged posture. Animals do not collapse in their structure in the same way as humans. It is therefore much easier to correct the structure of an animal than it is of a human."

- Prof. Stuart McGregor, DO, Animal Osteopath, UK

Nigel Hole BSc (Hons)

Animal Osteopath and student of Prof.McGregor
United Kingdom

Stuart’s expertise and passion for the subject of animal osteopathy is indisputable and his ability to impart his knowledge to the dedicated learner is second to none. I have been using his techniques to treat animals with great success for 16 years and have built a highly successful practice.

What our students say...

Danielle G.
Osteopath
Newbury UK

Stuart McGregor has given me all the tools I needed to go out and effectively assess and treat animals. The long lever articulation and mobilisation techniques taught by Stuart allow for animals to receive effective treatment. Animals respond fantastically to this form of treatment as it can be done in less time and is less invasive, making it an effective form of treatment for animals. The long lever technique is the basis of most of my treatments today!

Erik M.

I have just completed the preclinical module for the Canine stream of the Diploma in Animal Osteopathy program. The content of each course is deep, thorough and engaging. Each module takes you on an investigative journey that inspires and educates. I very much look forward to the Equine segment.

“ An intimate knowledge of anatomy, physiology and musculoskeletal pathology is essential.  Once learned, we don’t forget it because we keep it in mind every time we touch a dog or pick up a horse’s foot.“

- Prof. Stuart McGregor, DO, Animal Osteopath, UK

Overview

You will begin with learning the systemic anatomy and physiology of all body systems.  In the course on functional anatomy, you will examine structures of axial and appendicular skeletons, biomechanics of canine locomotion, functions of muscles, joints and spinal segments as they relate to movements. The third CHSE course reviews over a hundred health conditions: infectious diseases, systemic diseases and neoplasia (tumors), including their causes, diagnoses, signs, symptoms, and available treatments. To read more, please download the Program Outline below.

What our students say...

Angela S.
kennel owner and breeder
MN, USA

I am a physiotherapist and a kennel owner who took the Canine Health Science Essentials course in order to renew my professional certification. I was worried that I would be bored with the material because of my anatomy background, and I teach dog anatomy as well. That was not the case! I loved the course. I thought it was well organized and had wonderful video resources. I thought that the staff from LCAO was very responsive and helpful. I think this course was better than many continuing education courses that I take for my PT license renewal. I was so impressed with LCAO that I am now thinking of doing their diploma certification in canine osteopathy. I would highly recommend LCAO and the CHSE course.
