Overview

Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system; a dynamic structure that controls voluntary movement, posture coordination, and integrating information received by the body. This course examines both the structure and function of the equine nervous system. It seeks to help students understand both microscopic and macroscopic aspects and the complex circuits through which the animal experiences and responds to a stimulus. Join us in our deep dive into one of the most important canine systems.

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.

"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

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...

Olivia McDonald, Canada
Canine & Equine Rehabilitation and Conditioning Therapist
Student Int’l DipAO program

"I'm really enjoying the content and the way you present the information in the video lectures. Everything is very logically explained, making it easier to learn and making me look forward to downtime throughout the day where I can sit and go through a lesson. Obviously, there are lessons where I need to go back and review things a few times to truly grasp certain concepts, but the combination of the notes, videos, textbooks, and extra resources makes that possible."

Christopher Bates, UK
DO, Equine Therapist
Student Int’l DipAO program

"I have received excellent service and assistance in my studies here! The course content is thorough and high-quality delivery. The practical treatment videos are extremely useful, and the lectures are very well taught. I recommend LCAO courses to anyone wishing to expand their career or start a brand new one. As a lifelong equestrian, this industry is growing and growing every year, so now really is the time to jump in."

What our students say...

Julia Richards, UK

“ 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

Firstly, the program will thoroughly review the Systemic Anatomy and Physiology of all body systems. Following that, you will be introduced to the Functional Anatomy course which will cover the structures of axial and appendicular skeletons, biomechanics of canine locomotion, and the functions of muscles, joints, and spinal segments. This will provide you with a better understanding of their relationship to movements.

In the third course, which is centered on canine pathology and diseases, you will delve into over 100 health conditions, including infectious and systemic diseases, as well as tumors. The course will discuss the causes, symptoms, diagnoses, and treatments available for each of these conditions. To obtain additional information about the program, please download the Program Outline provided 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.
