VetkinTape® Online Equine Kinesiology Taping Courses

VetkinTape® Online Equine Kinesiology Taping Courses

Online Canine and Equine Kinesiology Taping Courses have been developed in cooperation with veterinary practitioners and other professionals from the Animal Health industry. Therefore, they will provide a very practical (case-based) approach to the kinesiology taping for animals. These courses (in face-to-face vorm) are available in around 20 countries worldwide, both very practical and theoretical. Currently we provide two type of online courses; canine and equine. Although the basis is the same, the split is needed as we see different cases, injuries and problems with both segments.

Course feedback

Course feedback

“It where two very interesting and educational course-days. After explaining the concept, functionality and possible applications of kinesiology tape, we practiced taping on eachother, cool! The second (practical tape apply-ing) part of the course contained: the observation of taping, which tapingtechniques to use, techniques for which application and when are the effects noticable.“
