The #APRVT is excited to announce that our very own President, Kristen Hagler and Vice-President Wendy Davies are instructors at The WVC 2016 Veterinary Technician Symposium June 27-29, 2016 | Oquendo Center | Las Vegas
Here is a sneak peek of one of Kristen's featured case studies:
#TechnicianTakeover! At 16 weeks old, Dustin, a yellow Lab, had an accident in puppy class, which resulted in a spiral fracture of his right distal tibia. In physical rehab, Dustin’s goals were to rebuild his muscle mass and core strength, improve his gait and balance and coordination… But where to start? Kristen Hagler, BS, RVT, CCRP, CVPP, OACM, CBW, (a symposium instructor), decided that treadmills, both underwater and on land, were the best course of action. Underwater treadmills help improve strength, provides resistance and helps relieve weight, while the land treadmill helps develop pertinent muscles, and assists with gait and joint awareness.
Dustin is now a happy and healthy 4-year-old who continues his work in rehab! To hear more from Kristen register for #VTS2016 here: http://www.wvc.org/vts/
