This evening, Dr. Fiona McClure, a veterinarian at Cherrydale Veterinary Clinic, will be giving a lecture on inflammatory bowel disease at the PetMAC Marketplace in Arlington from 5-6 p.m. Please visit or call 703/908-7387 to get more information or to RSVP.

Nothing says “date night” like a pre-dinner discussion of IBD.

From the PetMAC web site:

Dr. McClure has been an internal medicine specialist for 8 years and during that time she has had a special focus on gastrointestinal disease and endoscopic techniques. She will cover the range of symptoms, potential causes, diagnostic options and treatment options for IBD, which is a very common disorder found in dogs and cats.

Oh, yeah – a $10 donation to Homeward Trails Animal Rescue is required for this event. So not only is it educational but it also helps our little animal friends in their time of need.
