We are so excited to announce the Carolyn will be travelling with Team Canada to the International Federation of Cynological Sport (IFCS) World Agility Championship (WAC).
The National Agility Team is made up of the best dog and handler teams from all across Canada. Every year Team Canada competes against the best teams of other countries at the IFCS World Agility Championship (WAC). This year’s competition will be held in Hellendoon, Netherlands on April 10-14th.
Carolyn is so excited to offer her expertise to Team Canada and is looking forward to helping these amazing canine athletes achieve their maximum potential in the ring. Carolyn will be joined on the Health Care Team by Dr. David Lane of Points East West Veterinary.
MCR would like to thank the organizing committee for this amazing opportunity and for recognizing the role canine PT can play in helping our performance dogs.
Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to get updates from Carolyn in the field!
If you are in Ontario, there are very important proposed changes to the Veterinary Act of Ontario you should be aware of, specifically as it relates to your ability to receive treatment for your dog(s) from qualified individuals outside of the veterinarian field.
To read a letter from Carolyn, click here: mcr_letter-_oct_2017.pdf
The proposed changes would impact Carolyn's ability to deliver the service you have come to know and value in the following ways:
😳 Prevent Carolyn from being able to diagnose the cause of your dog's pain/dysfunction, despite previous and relevant training as a registered physiotherapist
😳 Prevent the use of acupuncture and dry needling by Carolyn without a consult before each and every treatment ($$$)
😳 Prevent the use of therapeutic modalities (e.g. joint mobilization, soft tissue work) by Carolyn without a consult before each and every treatment ($$$)
