This 4-hour lecture/lab will open with an overview of laser technology and its uses in general practice, tricks to get the best clinical results with the laser you have - or plan on getting - and some research on how it works and what it does. Following the lecture, students will participate in an interactive presentation of cases, protocols, and treatments on live canines. The program is open to DVMs (who examine the patient and prescribe treatment) and technicians (who perform the laser treatment).

Laurie McCauley

Canine Rehabilitation Institute

A 1992 graduate of Colorado State University's School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Laurie McCauley (DVM, DACVSMR, CCRT, CVA, CVC) was the Medical Director of TOPS Veterinary Rehabilitation for 17 years and now runs Red Tail Rehab in North Carolina. Since starting TOPS Vet Rehab in 1998, Dr. McCauley has been credited as one of the pioneers of veterinary rehabilitation, and has become one of the most recognized names in this field. Dr. McCauley is board certified in Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, certified in rehabilitation by the Canine Rehabilitation Institute, in veterinary acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society, and in animal chiropractic by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. In addition to these certifications, Dr. McCauley has also been on faculty of the Canine Rehabilitation Institute since 2004. She is a contributing author to Canine Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, Canine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, The Clinical Textbook for Veterinary Technicians, and Building the Canine Athlete Strength, Stretch, Endurance and Body Awareness Exercises (a canine exercise video). She is a frequent national and international lecturer on the topics of complementary medicine and rehabilitation. Dr. McCauley was awarded the 2011 Iams AARV Award for Excellence in the Field of Rehabilitation and the 2015 AHVMA Holistic Practitioner of the Year Award. She is credited with introducing the world to the use of underwater treadmill therapy as a part of canine rehabilitation, a modality considered almost standard in veterinary rehabilitation today. Outside of her acquired skills and expertise in rehabilitation, acupuncture, and chiropractic, Dr. McCauley brings an uncommon passion and energy to her work. This combination of skills and passion has helped Dr. McCauley return agility dogs to the ring, police K-9 dogs to service and companion dogs back to normal function.
