Thank you for wanting to complete the course for Canine MSTR®.
Just one more task to complete -
your case studies!!!
These guidelines will help you in preparing your case studies to complete your MSTR® for Dogs coursework.
The following details should be included:
Age and Sex – Neutered/Spayed or Intact
Is the dog a family pet and/or do agility training, sports, etc. ?
Description of issue as described by owner
Assessment technique and result of assessment
Does the scar affect the dog in daily life (range of mobility, pain or discomfort)
Include pre treatment assessment informationInclude post treatment assessment information
Photographs may be included if the scar is visible and you have a signed agreement with the pet owner to share
Did the dog respond in a negative or positive way to treatment and what did that look like?
In what ways has the treatment improved the animal (ROM, increased energy)?
In what way has the treatment changed the animals demeanour?
Apart from the above information you are free to construct and present your studies in as creative and interesting a way as you choose. Videos, photos etc. are all welcome as long as they show a clear improvement.
On the Canine student resource page you will find a PDF ‘Pre and Post Treatment Evaluation Form’ for you to use. This is NOT a case study form. It is intended to help you gather information about a dog as you proceed through your treatments. It may be included as part of your case study presentation.
When you are ready submit your case studies to your Canine MSTR® Instructor, Frances Carter. (You should have her email address already.)
