Third Thursday Educational Series – Advances in Medicine & Alternative Treatments for Your Pets

Homeward Trails and Dog Paws ‘n Cat Claws are partnering together to host an educational series called “Third Thursday” to bring you great resources for your pet.

In May the focus is on advances in veterinary medicine and alternative treatments, presented by Dr. John Herrity, DVM, practice owner of Burke Animal Clinic.


Cost: $5 donation to Homeward Trails

Dr. Herrity has been caring for pets in Northern Virginia for over 25 years.  He attended Virginia Tech and graduated with honors from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.   Never satisfied to tell a client, “There’s nothing more I can do for your pet,” he continues to look for ways to increase the quality of life for his patients.  He practices integrative medicine by offering traditional veterinary medicine alongside progressive holistic therapies, such as stem cell therapy, Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation, cold laser therapy, homotoxicology, and Bicom bioresonance therapy.

These therapies give Dr. Herrity more options to treat injuries, illnesses, and chronic conditions and to provide drug-free alternatives to pain management.  He’ll talk about his philosophy on healing and how he treats common conditions, such as torn cruciate ligaments, allergies, kidney disease, and hip dysplasia, with therapies that don’t just treat or mask symptoms but address underlying issues that, once treated, may improve the overall wellness of pets and help them live with a better quality of life.  He’ll share real-life cases and answer questions.
