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 ($$$)
😳 Prevent the use of therapeutic modalities (e.g. joint mobilization, soft tissue work) by Carolyn without a consult before each and every treatment ($$$)
