Canine Kinesiology Taping Course

The course

Besides the equine taping course, VetkinTape also offers Canine taping courses and has even designed a special size kinesiology tape for this sector (VetkinTape 3 CM). The courses are developed in cooperation with canine practitioners with veterinary physiotherapy experience, professionals from the Animal Health industry and VetkinTape.

Canine kinesiology taping

Kinesiology tape for dogs is -just like taping equines – an addition to the skills portfolio of canine physiotherapists and is used in many applications. It is commonly used for pain relief and improvement of the blood circulation & lymphatic flow. VetkinTape sees an increasing demand for veterinary taping on dogs and anticipates many veterinary professionals and physiotherapists will use this method in their daily practice. It is a new & additional technique of veterinary rehabilitation & animal physiotherapy.
