What Our Students Say: 



Foundation Course students 2017

“The canine manual therapy course was an excellent opportunity for learning and professional development. It was different from usual veterinary CPD and I really enjoyed learning how to help patients without being invasive through the use of gentle targeted techniques. It was also really useful to review all the muscle groups and to start thinking about patients and conditions as a whole, not just as a list of symptoms and differential diagnosis.” Claudia (Veterinary Surgeon)


“I started the course as a first year student, so I was worried about the osteopathic knowledge that was going to be required. However, the lecturers take all students levels into consideration and really help the less knowledgeable to understand the terms, and get everyone really involved in the learning process. Over the number of weekends I improved so much and am now much more confident than when I started.”  Martha (First year M.Ost osteopathic student)


Feedback from previous ESO animal course attendees


“My fellow classmates – fast becoming friends – are wonderful. A diverse, enthusiastic mix of students from all over Europe! We all have our own strengths and ways of working and this comes across as a positive class dynamic.  There is hands-on practical from weekend one, so no endless hours of theory, wondering when the practical session will start.”


“Very inspiring course. Leaves you wanting to do more.”


“The lectures have all been very clear and interesting. Lecturers were supportive throughout. No questions too silly to answer. It was a great, well run course.”


“A very enjoyable and well run course”


“ A big thank you to the team for a great introduction to the world of animal osteopathy. The atmosphere was both enjoyable and focused, and the elements of learning well chosen. I particularly enjoyed the addition of the behavioural lecture, which I think was a distinctive feature from the other courses presently offered.”


“ A very safe, enthusiastic learning environment. Couldn’t have asked for more.”


“Thank you for an outstanding experience.”


“Fantastic introduction to canine osteopathy and how to start doing some hands on practice, safely and confidently.”
