A Message from Our CEO, Janet Van Dyke, DVM, DACVSMR.

Thank goodness we are nearing the end of what has been such a challenging year. Here at CRI, we find ourselves looking forward to 2021, and to new opportunities for innovation and growth. We have all had to learn new ways to work, to teach, to communicate, and to share time with those we love. From these lessons, we will move forward armed with new skills and insights that can make our program even better.
Thanks to the hard work of our faculty and staff, we were able to respond to this pandemic relatively quickly. We created webinars that kept our students and graduates engaged and advancing their skill sets. When it was clear we were going to be dealing COVID-19 for a while, we created hybrid versions of our core modules, with live lectures and discussion groups via Zoom followed by small in-person labs. Based on what we learned, we developed a more streamlined version of the hybrid courses that we will start offering in 2021. Our core modules are sold out through the first quarter of 2021, and we are filling wait lists as we begin organizing our second quarter calendar. Keep your eyes on the CRI website and the monthly e-newsletters for updates.
We are also beginning to add our most popular CE courses to next year’s calendar. I can’t imagine a better time to take Business of Canine Rehabilitation than right now. This course is offered entirely online via pre-recorded lectures and three live Zoom sessions. The instructors include three very successful CRI graduates who share their extensive experience operating rehabilitation referral practices in free standing facilities, large multi-specialty practices, general practices, and mobile. They understand the challenges presented in each setting, teach best practices for creating working relationships with referring veterinarians, and dive into the topics of social media, scheduling, pricing structures, and how to turn your passion into profit. Seats are limited for this course. Don’t miss out! See information in this newsletter regarding registration.
Wishing you all a joyous, peaceful, and healthy holiday season and start to the new year.

Janet B. Van Dyke, DVM, Diplomate American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, CCRT
Founder and CEO
Register Now for Our February Live/Interactive Business Course!
Registration is open for our February Business of Canine Rehabilitation course! This course will held entirely online with recorded video lectures and three interactive Zoom discussion sessions on February 10, 17, and 24, 2021, at 8 pm EST. Please see our Business course page for a detailed course outline.

In this course, students will learn how to write a business plan that fits their finances, space, staff, and client needs. Interactive panel discussions will present strategies for achieving profitability in a canine rehabilitation practice including design, equipment selection, services/fees, operations, staffing and marketing.

Our recent Business course in this live/interactive format received great reviews from participants:

"All three instructors had the perfect balance of different approaches, backgrounds, and areas of expertise in the field. They complemented each other nicely and it was great to learn from all of them."
- John Quinn, Hospital Manager, Belmont, Massachusetts

"Super helpful course! Thank you!" 
- Stephanie Kindred, DVM, CCRT, Winter Garden, Florida 
"I loved that all instructors come from different backgrounds, and currently have different business models. Very helpful for those of us currently practicing in one model of business (house call), with plans to expand into another (building a brick and mortar)."
- Heather Misener, DVM, CCRT, CVAT, Gig Harbor, Washington

Earn Your Acupuncture Certification in 2021!   
We have scheduled our acupuncture modules through May 2021. Our acupuncture modules are held in person in Littleton, Colorado, with small groups and social distancing.

We are limiting class size to 10 students to allow for social distancing and will notify registrants of any changes at least 30 days prior to the start of each module. If you have already started Acupuncture certification, please contact us so we may help you register for the remaining modules and finish your certification as a Certified Veterinary Acupuncture Therapist!

"I felt as though I gained far more from Module 2 [Veterinary Medical Acupuncture for Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Patients] than Module 1, but not necessarily due to the fact that the module was better. It had far more to do with the amount of needling practice that I was able to do in the weeks separating the two courses ... the increase in confidence in the actual needle handling and point finding allowed me to focus far more on the finer points of learning new areas to choose for specific conditions."
- Erin True, DVM, CCRT, Elk Grove, California

Veterinarians: If you are already certified in acupuncture, be sure to check out our accelerated program for more hands-on training and increased knowledge of neurophysiology-based acupuncture.

In the accelerated program, students watch the online videos for two of the three modules, and then attend one live module (either Module 2 or 3) for additional hands-on training. For the live module, we strongly recommend students attend Veterinary Medical Acupuncture for Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Patients (Module 2). Students must watch the videos from Introduction to Veterinary Medical Acupuncture (Module 1) before taking the in-person module.
Remember, save $200 when you register for Acupuncture Modules 1 and 2 or Acupuncture Modules 2 and 3 as a 2-course package.

Residents: Need to Complete a Research Project?

We plan to offer this course in early 2021. This online course, led by faculty member Dr. Chris Zink, includes 10 live discussions held once a week and is limited to 15 students to allow ample time for interaction.
Visit our website to learn more about our special discount for ACVSMR and VOS residents. Residents: join VOS to get 25% off the tuition!
Our Introduction to Veterinary Clinical Research course has received great reviews from students!
"I absolutely loved this class. Chris's enthusiasm for research as well as her openness to people who are not in academia as nascent researchers was refreshing. As someone who went directly into practice rather than the internship route, it was very helpful in defining the research process from how to form a solid hypothesis from a germ of an idea all the way to writing the paper. It also provided a basis to read journal articles with a more critical eye. The tips that Chris provided from her years of experience in the research field were invaluable."
- Beth Ellen McNamara, DVM, CCRT, CVMA, CVAT, Harrison, Maine

"I learnt a great deal during this course and look forward to putting it into practice. Thank you."
- Tanya Grantham, BVSc, CVA, CCRP, CCBW, Benoni, Gauteng, South Africa
"Wonderful course - I learned so much."
- Sheradan Pate, DVM, CVA, CCRT, Pismo Beach, Hawaii

Research Update from Canine Home Exercises

Surface Electromyography of the Vastus Lateralis, Biceps Femoris, and Gluteus Medius in Dogs During Stance, Walking, Trotting, and Selected Therapeutic Exercises.
The Study: This study evaluated the muscle activity patterns with surface emg of the vastus lateralis, biceps femoris, and gluteus medius during stance, walking, trotting, and selected therapeutic exercises in clinically sound, healthy dogs.
Static exercises included:
  • Elevation of the forelimbs onto a 30 cm tall platform.
  • Elevation of the forelimbs onto the same 30 cm platform with the hindlimbs on a 15 cm tall inflatable balance device.
  • Standing on a round 91 cm balance board.
Dynamic exercises included:
  • Walking at a comfortable speed for three trials of 7–10 strides.
  • Trotting at a comfortable speed for three trials of 7–10 strides.
  • “Up and over” a 30 cm tall platform.
  • Backwards dancing

Level of Evidence: Descriptive Study

Study Limitations: Surface emg has limitations including measuring the sum of muscle activation making measuring specific muscles difficult. Since emg is placed on the skin, the electrodes may move over multiple muscles during a functional activity.

Impact on Clinical Practice: For all muscles, the least activation was at the emg baseline measured in static stance. All muscles showed increased activation with exercises.

Biceps femoris had the least activation on the wobble board, the greatest activation during backwards dancing.
Vastus lateralis has the least activation with the forelimbs on the platform, the greatest activation during up-and-over and backwards dancing.
Gluteus medius had the least activation with the static exercises, the greatest activation during leg weight trot and backwards dancing.
Canine Home Exercises Are an Integral Component of Any Rehabilitation Plan. We Make It Easy.

Special Offer! Evidence-Based Resources at Your Fingertips - From Canine Arthritis Resources & Education.

CRI is pleased to be a sponsor of Canine Arthritis Resources and Education (CARE). Osteoarthritis is one of the most common conditions you will see in your practice, with at least 1 in 5 dogs developing the disease in their lifetime. As the leading cause of chronic pain, OA can have a significant impact on the quality of life for your patients, and for your clients who are caring for dogs in pain.
While OA isn't curable, the earlier you can identify and manage it, the better impact you can have on your patients' quality of life. With CARE, you'll find tools, resources, and evidence-based information to help aid you in your practice.
CARE was founded by CRI faculty member Kristin Kirkby Shaw, DVM, MS, PhD, CCRT, DACVS, DACVSMR, as a central resource to answer the most common questions about OA that she encounters from colleagues around the world. The website covers everything from diagnosing developmental orthopedic diseases to nutrition and weight loss, rehabilitation, pain management, lifestyle modifications, and more. There are resources to share with clients, as well as extensive, evidence-based content for dog owners to help them manage their dog's OA at home.
CARE is offering a special through CRI. Visit CARE and use coupon code CRI25 to receive 25% off the ANNUAL PRO membership.

PT Students: You Can Now Register for Rehabilitation Certification Courses Before Completing Your Degree.

Attention, physical therapists and PT students! You can now register for CRI courses during your final year in PT school and start your certification as a canine rehabilitation therapist as soon as you have graduated and are licensed! We will NO LONGER require that you graduate before registering for courses. This will allow you to achieve your dream of working with animals much sooner!
Physical therapy students can register for any courses that licensed physical therapists can take, but you cannot start the courses until you graduate and are licensed. To become certified as a CCRT, you must complete the three required courses plus a 40-hour internship. In addition, you must have completed one year of clinical experience in human physical therapy after receiving your PT license.
Have questions? Contact us at We are very excited to continue helping more and more PTs along this exciting journey! 
Veterinary Students: Have You Heard About the Changes to Our Rehabilitation and Acupuncture Certification Programs?
We know that veterinary students that graduate with certifications in veterinary rehabilitation and/or acupuncture have more to offer a potential employer. But finances and school schedules can make this additional training very challenging. With this in mind, CRI has made adjustments to our rehabilitation and acupuncture certification programs just for veterinary students.

Certification in Canine Rehabilitation (CCRT): Students can start their training by taking Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation any time after their first year. They can then take the second module, Clinical Skills, any time after their second year. After their third year, they can take the last module, Clinical Applications, followed by a 40-hour internship. Certification will be awarded when the students obtain their veterinary licenses.

Certification in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture (CVAT): Students can start their training by taking Introduction to Veterinary Medical Acupuncture any time after their first year. They can then take the second module, Veterinary Medical Acupuncture for Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Patients any time after their second year, and the last module, Canine and Feline Medical Acupuncture, any time after their third year. Certification will be awarded when the students obtain their veterinary licenses.

We encourage veterinary students to take advantage of the 20% discount off the tuition we are currently offering. We are also in discussions with our sponsor companies to develop tuition assistance programs.

For complete details, please see our Veterinary Student Certification page or contact us at

Congratulations to Ruby and Kindle, Our Breezie Demo Dogs of the Month!

Our December Breezie Demo Dog Award Winners are Ruby and Kindle, the companions of Maureen Baumtrog. Ruby and Kindle are Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers who have both had storied careers in many canine sporting events. Ruby, who is 12, excelled in Agility (competing at Nationals 5 times), and has titles in hunting, obedience, Rally and lure coursing. Now "retired" from these sports, she works as a Trick Performer, Certified Therapy Dog, and enjoys scent work and barn hunt. Kindle, 8 years old, prefers dock diving, where this year she was the only Toller in the U.S. to qualify for regionals in Elite Distance, Master Air Retrieve and Master Hydro Dash. In addition, Kindle has titles in hunting, scent work, obedience, Rally, and lure coursing. Like her sister, Kindle is a Trick Performer and Certified Therapy Dog, bringing much needed breaks to the US Space Force airmen at Schriever AFB.

We are so fortunate to have these two super stars adding “CRI Dog Professor” to their long list of titles! We look forward to many more excellent classes with them as they help our students to learn new techniques. For many, these two girls give a first opportunity to work with, assess, and "treat" an elite canine athlete.

In recognition of this honor, Ruby and Kindle will receive a gift bag from Jiminy's valued at $50. Congratulations, Ruby and Kindle, and enjoy your yummy Jiminy's treats!
The Breezie Demo Dog of the Month Award is given in memory of Breezie, who was the lead demo dog for our Coral Springs courses for more than 9 years and helped to educate more than 800 veterinary and physical therapy professionals. She was such a great demo dog that our faculty would beg to have her in their small group sessions. Breezie's favorite holiday was Halloween when she was always the best dressed dog in Coral Springs!
