When Tripawds founder Jerry came home after amputation surgery, his vet said “Just let him be a dog.” We didn’t know what that meant for a Tripawd. If only we had a canine rehabilitation therapist ready to explain how to help a three-legged dog (or cat) get strong. But now, you do!

Learn from the best vet expert in canine rehab therapy.
Dr. Waterhouse is a leading canine rehabilitation therapist who graduated in 2004 from the University of Sydney Veterinary School in Australia.
In his early days as a general practitioner, he was drawn to the areas of veterinary alternative medicine, including traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and acupuncture.
In 2010, John moved to the USA to undertake a fellowship in pain management and rehabilitative medicine, and an externship in diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound. Later, he became a Certified Canine Rehab Practitioner (CCRP) through the University of Tennessee.
Dr. Waterhouse went on to help build and open the new Canine Rehabilitation & Arthritis Center in Colorado Springs, owned and operated by Dr. Mike Bauer of the Colorado Canine Orthopedic Group.
He speaks at vet conferences on the topics of Canine Arthritis and pain management in relation to canine sports medicine, and is also founder of the Veterinary Teaching Academy.
Along with his wife, veterinarian Dr. Celia Waterhouse, the duo teaches veterinary professionals the latest canine rehabilitation methods, while giving non-veterinary professionals access to evidence-based information that improves our pets’ health and quality of life.

Sorry to hear about your local chiro, Kerren. I’m glad you signed up, and hope Mona is feeling OK otherwise. I made sure Dr. Waterhouse will include cat tips too. See you there!
Hey folks, hope you got to watch this! It’s got a lot of info geared to the vet community but there are many things we can learn from it.
And this is also just a reminder that Dr. Waterhouse’s webinar is only available free for the next 34 hours. After that, he will make it available in a more pet-parent friendly presentation on his website, probably in about two weeks. We will keep you posted.
