Program offers on-site training for staff and up to 140 hours of continuing education credits to help clinics offer pet rehabilitation services
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (July 12, 2022) – Vetoquinol USA announces the launch of a new program to help veterinary clinics jump-start rehabilitation services: Vetoquinol Rehabilitation Business Solution (VeRBS).
The program offers a two-day, on-site course with lectures, hands-on labs, and business planning services for up to 10 clinic staff members. Upon completion, the clinic will be prepared to launch rehabilitation services for dogs and cats immediately — including basic equipment.
"Just like people, dogs can benefit from programs that help improve fitness and overall mobility,” said Heidi Rooney, MBA, Business Solutions Development Manager, Vetoquinol USA. “With the VeRBS program, clinics can make staff training and equipment selection nearly turnkey. After a two-day training session, clinics will have the fundamentals to help patients regain strength, mobility, and comfort to become active family members again."
The VeRBS program offers:
- On-site, personalized courses led by qualified instructors
- Hands-on labs
- Measurement methodologies
- Therapeutic techniques
- Business planning guides and treatment evaluation templates
- Marketing materials
- Instruction for using a variety of rehabilitation equipment
The courses are led by Beth Frank, DVM, MS. Dr. Frank earned her Canine Rehabilitation Therapist Certification (CCRT) and is certified in veterinary medical acupuncture (cVMA). During the in-person course, participants will receive training in rehabilitation of the forelimb, hindlimb, geriatric patient, neurologic patient, and feline patient. The program provides 14 hours of continuing education credits per participant with a maximum of 10 staff members.
"Adding rehabilitation services has direct benefits to patients, and it empowers staff to manage their own cases and build deeper client relationships," Rooney said. "Our experience working with veterinary clinics allowed us to hone in on a service that’s in high demand, convenient for the practice, and boosts the bottom line."
