CAM not only believes in the multimodal approach to managing arthritis but has also seen it work countless times when a multidisciplinary team is engaged.

Therapists bring new skill sets to case management. You tackle elements of the dog’s condition which helps improve quality of life and pain control as well as function and capability. CAM thinks that you - the therapists - can be the missing piece of the complex puzzle.

To ensure you awesome individuals are ‘fully up to date on all things arthritis‘ CAM has created a course just for you - the therapist!

Owner education is the cornerstone of gold standard canine arthritis management, not only because a well-informed owner is more likely to be compliant with a management plan, but also because there is so much an empowered owner can do to manage and influence the disease process at home. CAM is committed to providing unbiased education resources for both owners and canine professionals, and through the CAM Education Initiative, we are aiming to revolutionise owner education in therapy practices worldwide.
