Small Animal

Good afternoon. I wanted to take a moment today to personally thank you for the opportunity The Gorilla Grant I was awarded provided me. I completed my SAMP100 practical this past Saturday with a 97! You have an excellent team in Sandy, Lori, Jaime and Rubi. Each one of them helped me get to where I am today. I’m so excited about my future and the great things that I can do for the small animals in my community! I hope to honor your Gorilla and my Peatie with every special soul I come in contact with.   Thanks again for everything!   Margaret Taormina, CSAMP

I loved the hands-on time with the horses.  The pace of the class was great, well-broken up between lecture and practical.  The lectures were very well-done.  Great explanations and very interesting.

~ Laura Huddlestone — Large Animal graduate

I liked all of it.  I really like getting all of the detail about the muscles.  I liked that the teachers were nice, friendly and approachable.

~ Karen Stone — Small Animal graduate

I feel very lucky to have been able to attend this program.  The entire experience was very rewarding and positive.  I’m excited to get out and … start building a new practice!

~ Linda Nylander– Large Animal graduate

I found the instructors to be excellent at demonstrating and explaining information.  By the time I went to the practical session, I felt very prepared.

~ Polly Klein — Small Animal graduate

I’m even more enthused to pursue this avenue of bodywork.  This has been one of the best continuing education courses I’ve ever done.  Thank you!
