In the meantime, we encourage you to continue your education through online learning opportunities, including our Online CE Course Subscription as well as our Introduction to Veterinary Clinical Research course that will begin in late May. 

To help facilitate online learning, we are offering our annual Online CE Course Subscription for $625 (a 20% savings) through April 3rd.

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

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?vetstudentprograms

Veterinary student with white dog 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

Our Updated CCRT Curriculum Begins in 2020!ccrt     

We are excited to announce our updated Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) program for veterinarians and physical therapists.

Starting January 1, 2020, the three modules for CCRT certification will be:
  • Module 1: Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation. The content of this module will remain essentially the same. This is a 5-day course.
  • Module 2: Clinical Skills (formerly called Canine Rehabilitation Therapist). Students will be introduced to clinical assessment, goal setting, treatment planning, and outcome measurement from a physical therapy perspective. This is a 5-day course.
  • Module 3: Clinical Applications. This is a new hands-on course where students will be able to practice their evaluation skills, create assessments, and present treatment plans for all types of canine rehabilitation cases. This is a 3-day course.
  • Internship: A 40-hour internship remains a requirement for CCRT certification.
These changes only apply to the CCRT certification program for veterinarians and physical therapists. There is NO change to the CCRVN/CCRA curriculum for veterinary technicians/nurses.

Congratulations to Bean, Our Breezie Demo Dog of the Month! breezie

Bean_ the Breezie Demo Dog Winner of the Month
Our March Breezie Demo Dog Award Winner is Bean, the beloved companion of Dr. Angelikie Zafiris, an emergency/critical care veterinarian at Coral Springs Animal Hospital.
Dr. Zafiris describes Bean as a "wacky" female spayed greyhound who is approximately 9 years old. Bean was originally obtained by a local emergency facility after sustaining a track-related injury (tarsal fracture). At that time, her fracture was repaired, and she very willingly enrolled in a blood donor program, saving the lives of the many anemic puppies of the world. After two years of being a blood donor, she was adopted by her current mommy and has been living "the life" ever since.
"Bean is a goofy, free spirited, love machine that is like no other greyhound known to man," Dr. Zafiris adds. "She enjoys long runs on the beach and submersing herself in water; although folks, don't let her fool you, she will sink like a log. She loves to wear pajamas in the cold weather and is most notably known for her short wiggly tail, long tongue and silly personality. Bean is overwhelmingly loved by all the amazing nurses at CSAH and was recently gifted the most fitting collar; covered with hearts, rainbows and unicorn guinea pigs by Theresa (one of the night nurses)."
CRI faculty member Kara Amstutz, DVM, CCRT, CVPP, CVA, explains why Bean was chosen for the Breezie Demo Dog Award: "Bean was a superstar the last two courses I have worked with her. Everyone in the hospital knows her too - as you walk her out to potty or to class, the employees passing by exclaim "Bean!" similar to the show "Cheers" with "Norm!" She is super patient with the students and allows for easy palpation. She is just a sweet and gentle girl. Love her."
In recognition of this honor, Bean will receive a gift bag from Jiminy's valued at $50. Congratulations, Bean!
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!

OrthoPets Case Study: Finn    
We've asked our colleagues at OrthoPets to share case studies with us as a way of providing more education about orthotics and prosthetics.
Finn is a 4-year-old male border collie who was presented to Avondale Veterinary Healthcare in Iowa in September 2019 for radial nerve paralysis of his left thoracic limb after jumping out of a car window 6 months prior. On the physical exam, his carpal extension was 150 degrees and flexion was 33 degrees. He had muscle atrophy of this triceps, biceps, and trapezoids, and good control of his elbow. He also had a wound on the dorsum of his paw due to dragging the limb.

The original plan for Finn was to try to utilize a carpal orthotic (dog wrist brace) to slowly gain extension of the carpus. When OrthoPets received the case and media, they had concerns about the triceps function and the possibility of gaining extension due to the length of the injury. The owners elected to visit the OrthoPets team at Colorado State University to verify.
The evaluation by Martin Kaufmann and the team at CSU determined that Finn had impressive triceps control and would benefit from an accommodative-style hybrid orthotic/prosthetic to return his extension to the ground in a normal alignment.
Finn returned to Dr. Christie Carlo's care in Iowa and was fitted with the hybrid device. He took to it right away and is regularly attending rehabilitation to gain better elbow extension. His paw wound has healed as well. Finn's quality of life is now back to normal. He is very active and enjoys chasing the ball in the device!
