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

I am happy to report that 2021 is off to a great start. We got wonderful reviews from our students for our first two modules of the year – Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation and Clinical Skills. Our Veterinary Medical Acupuncture program is back in full swing with modules scheduled every month. And we launched our very popular Business of Canine Rehabilitation course to a sold-out class and a wait list growing for the next time it is offered.

Registration is now open for our very popular Canine Sports Medicine course, September 16-18 at our Littleton, Colorado, facility. Dr. Chris Zink will cover the common injuries seen in canine sports, the training techniques that can be employed to prevent injuries, rehabilitation techniques to regain peak performance in our working and competing dogs, and so much more. Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to learn from a world-renowned expert, author, and past president of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Are you interested in offering orthoses for your patients but don’t know where to start? Are you already using orthoses in your practice but challenged by how to make necessary adjustments or alterations to the devices? We have the course for you! Our Veterinary Orthoses and Prostheses course will be taught by Patsy Mich, DVM, DACVAA, DACVSMR, who has over 15 years experience and success in prescribing, developing, and adjusting veterinary orthoses and prostheses. Our plan is to add this course to the calendar for this fall. If you are interested in attending, please email us at, and we will add you to the interest list.

While we have been busy updating our curriculum and looking at additional opportunities for CE, we have also been hard at work behind the scenes developing our faculty. Our Teaching Assistant In Training (TAIT) program, coordinated by Senior Faculty Member Amber Kenney, prepares interested CCRTs and CCRVNs to join the CRI team. They start by participating in our Zoom classes. With sufficient experience in this role, TAITs can then join our in-person lab sessions, shadowing faculty and TAs. I encourage all CCRTs and CCRVNs who think they would enjoy working with our students and sharing their personal experience to sign up for this wonderful program by emailing us at

We continue to monitor COVID metrics as they slowly improve in Colorado. Our instructors are starting to be vaccinated, giving us hope that before too many more months go by we will be able to return to larger class sizes. This should help us clear the backlog of veterinarians, physical therapists, and veterinary nurses wanting to pursue certification. Until then, we appreciate everyone’s patience. Our plan is to return to our teaching facility in sunny Florida in November with full in-person classes. Fingers crossed!

Thank goodness we are finally getting closer to that normal life which we all took for granted. In the meantime, be well and stay safe.

Join Us This Spring for Acupuncture Certification!   
We are pleased that COVID-19 numbers in Colorado have improved and gathering restrictions have been modified, allowing us to add more students to our acupuncture modules. We have a few seats open in Introduction to Veterinary Medical Acupuncture (Module 1) on March 26-28 and Veterinary Medical Acupuncture for Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Patients (Module 2) on April 23-25. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Register for both modules with a 2-course package and qualify for a discount!

Our upcoming modules are filling up, so register or contact us to join our interest list. 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 Words of Our Students ... 

"I LOVED this first course! All of the instructors were knowledgeable, approachable, and you could see their enthusiasm for what they do. The [anatomy classes] were a great way to review and relearn anatomy and to visualize what the muscles were doing. Loved the small groups for hands-on and immediately getting to review what was just taught. The constant reinforcement really helped things come together. Looking forward to Clinical Skills!!"
– Jennifer Magilton, VMD, Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania

We plan to offer this course in 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
During the course, students receive a comprehensive introduction to clinical research in the veterinary setting, covering the entire process from concept to publication.

Research Update from Canine Home Exercises

The Effects of Photobiomodulation on Canine Elbow Osteoarthritis.
The Study: This prospective clinical study evaluated the effect of photobiomodulation therapy vs. sham on the use of NSAIDS and lameness in 20 dogs with naturally occurring elbow osteoarthritis. 20 dogs were randomly assigned to either the treatment group (10-20 J/cm2 to the elbow joints) or the sham group (0 J/cm2 to the elbow joints). Treatment was completed for 6 weeks. The treatment group showed significant improvements in pain score, lameness scores, and lowering the NSAID requirement compared to the placebo group.

Study Limitations: Per the authors, the inclusion criteria reflected the clinical heterogeneity of elbow OA, the study had a small sample size, inability to standardize pre-existing NSAIDs, and possible biological effects of the sham laser.

Impact on Clinical Practice: This study suggests higher doses of laser therapy, 10-20 J/cm2, may be effective in treating some of the clinical signs associated with osteoarthritis in canine patients.

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. Visit the CARE website to learn more.
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.

Congratulations to Mimzy Buttercup Brown, Our Breezie Demo Dog of the Month!
Mimzy Buttercup Brown Foster
Sometime around 14 years ago, a small, brown, wild animal arrived at the little shelter on the corner. Her hairs were sunburned, moth-eaten, and dense from nary seeing a brush.
At this same time, there was a human in search of a pretty, small dog that could be a model to help with the human’s canine rehabilitation business.
The little shelter on the corner contacted the human about the arrival of said small brown dog, and she put the wheels in motion to have the little brown evaluated by her sister, a dog behavior expert, to make sure she would be a good fit for the human and her black lab Quinn.

Upon arrival at the shelter, the sister exclaimed, “Well, she is not pretty” but rather she was quite cute in her very own way. And on this fateful day, that small, brown, wild animal joined the loving home of CRI Senior Faculty Member Sasha Foster, and she became the one and only Mimzy Buttercup Brown Foster.
With Sasha’s endless care and organic kibbles, Mimzy did flourish. Her coat became shiny and smooth, her prance became more pronounced and her giant character in a small, stout package became more and more evident. As a dog school drop-out, she was able to remain a small, brown wild animal with a rather fancy name, because she preferred it that way. In her years with Sasha, the two have become the dearest of friends and speak that secret language that only occurs between two beings that know each other well.

Mimzy has been Sasha’s business partner and has played a significant role in teaching Canine Rehabilitation Institute students. Recently declaring her retirement from regular work as a Dog Professor, Mimzy has been granted the title of Dog Professor Emeritus at CRI.

This month, Mimzy is also our Breezie Demo Dog Award Winner! In recognition of this honor, Mimzy will receive a $50 gift certificate from Jiminy's good for any of their treats or dog food. Congratulations to Mimzy and Sasha! 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!
