"Are you a certified canine rehabilitation practitioner in the veterinary field and looking to advance your career? Noah’s Ark Veterinary & Boarding Resort is a progressive, full-spectrum practice nestled between Baltimore and Annapolis that is seeking an experienced CCRP to run our rehabilitation department.
We are home to one of the most innovative therapeutic class IV cold laser systems available worldwide and are able to work with a number of conditions including orthopedic issues, non-healing wounds, aural hematomas, atopic dermatitis, lick granulomas ("hot spots"), chronic otitis, rhinitis, gingivitis, cystitis, and more. We also offer hydrotherapy through the utilization of an underwater treadmill; this form of therapy is highly recommended by veterinarians for a wide range of orthopedic concerns, as well as a great source of exercise for physical conditioning and weight loss. Other modalities potentially implemented include therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation (both Neuromuscular Electric Stimulation and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), as well as land exercise regimens which utilize physical therapy equipment.
We welcome your knowledge and experience, and, in turn, will provide an environment that is rewarding, interesting, and enjoyable. We look forward to hearing from you.
