Animal Academy Podcast: A Conversation with Chris Zink DVM, PhD, DACVP, DACVSMR

A Conversation with Chris Zink DVM, PhD, DACVP, DACVSMR


Over the years as I’ve raised, trained and competed in sports with my dogs. I’ve learned lessons, some the hard way. At the same time there’s been growing research in the field of canine rehabilitation in sports medicine. I attended training, lectures and then had to reach out to veterinarian specialist when my dogs had injuries. Some were sports related, others had injuries just chasing squirrels in the backyard.
I had the privilege to attend one of Dr. Zink’s seminars called Coaching The Canine Athlete. I then reached out to Dr. Zink about my dogs recent injury, then followed up with an evaluation and treatment plan to help her heal. This whole process of rehabilitation and learning about activities to help my dogs get into better condition created not only a bond with my dogs, but increased their quality of life.
I am honored to be able to speak with this episodes guest Dr. Chris Zink, who is one of the primary specialists who has helped my dogs over the years.
