Becoming an Equine Physical Therapist
I've been doing some research today at school, and.. well.. I may have opened up a giant can of worms for the school counseler! She helps all of us seniors with college stuff and figuring out our lives, etc, etc. I brought this to her after a quick google search that sparked my interest, and she had actually never even heard of an Equine Physical Therapist! Which doesn't surprise me, it is still a very new concept especially concerning non horse people.
Anyway. The research her and I have done so far has shown that there really is no set course or degree that you can take to become an EPT (Equine Physical Therapist). Using an acronym here because this is a long term! Too much typing.
The two most popular ways of getting to EPT are starting first as a human PT or getting your DVM first. I would prefer to go the PT direction because it is shorter but I also feel like getting my DVM would help with the legal side of things.
I'm not sure where to start here. If anyone has advice, its completely welcome!
