Animal Osteopathy at the ESO

Our animal courses are led by Dustie Houchin, an Animal Osteopath of over 15 years and Chair of The Association of Animal Osteopaths.  Dustie is supported by a team of committed and passionate lecturers who have extensive animal-related lecturing experience, including membership of the ESO’s MSc/postgraduate teaching faculty*.

Animal Osteopathy Courses

We are considering a new, exciting calendar of animal related courses for osteopaths and paraprofessionals. Options being considered:-

  • Short Animal Osteopathy CPD workshops covering a range of topics
  • Animal behaviour
  • Equi-taping
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Electrotherapy
  • Rehabilitation

*In March 2015 the University of Greenwich awarded the ESO validation for three new postgraduate animal osteopathic programmes. The MSc Animal Osteopathy (Canine and Equine) and their associated PG Certificate and PG Diploma. We were the first Osteopathic Educational Institute in the UK to offer such a programme and commendations were made to both Miss Houchin and the ESO for having created such an excellent programme of education for this embryonic profession. Entry to the validated programmes is currently closed; the animal osteopathy team is developing a new range of internally validated short courses.
