VOP Certified Prosthetist/Orthotists

OrthoPets’ traditional business model positions the collaborating veterinarian to work in conjunction with Veterinary Orthotic and Prosthetic (VOP) case managers via remote telemedicine. This model requires a patient pet parent and a veterinarian and veterinary staff who are willing to learn and forge ahead into a new world. Some veterinarians love it and thrive often incorporating VOP into a new service offering at their clinic. Some veterinarians find VOP is outside their arena of comfort or area of interest. While OrthoPets has Partner Clinics scattered across the continental United States, Canada and even Internationally, OrthoPets sought to improve upon the field of VOP and drive it forward into a new direction. Thus, in 2022, OrthoPets partnered with human Certified Prosthetist Orthotists (CPOs) across the country.

What is a CPO?

A CPO is a human healthcare professional specifically educated and trained to manage comprehensive orthotic and prosthetic care. While their education and experience are largely rooted in the human healthcare, OrthoPets has supplemented and augmented their education with training in Veterinary Medicine, specifically veterinary anatomy, orthopedic and neurologic pathologies and VOP device design. At OrthoPets, we value the veterinarian’s expertise and the Veterinarian-Client-Patient relationship. Our partnered CPOs continue to collaborate with the veterinarians and follow all state veterinary practice act laws.
