According to BluePearl's head of behavioral medicine, Dr. Jill Sackman, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs. Does your cat know any tricks? Tell us in the comments.

    How to train your cat - and why you should
    It's common knowledge that dogs can be trained to obey cues and do tricks, and it's a common misconception that the same is not true for cats. Actually, cats are very trainable and have a learning capacity similar to dogs, according to Dr. Jill Sackman, a BluePearl veterinarian and pet behavior expert.

But for cats and dogs with debilitating and painful disease or trauma to the leg, amputation can sometimes be the best decision for quality of life and pain relief.

Dexter the Labrador retriever was shot in the head more than once, and a good Samaritan brought him to our BluePearl hospital in Brandon. While it appears the bullets missed his brain, he will need oral surgery to repair jaw damage and begin his journey to recovery. Dexter is getting excellent care by BluePearl clinicians, and rescuers with Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida are working to find him a new home.

    Dog, shot in head, taken to veterinary hospital (w/video)
    BRANDON - Someone shot a Labrador retriever in the head, more than once. Rescuers can't say why. But they have rallied around the dog in recent days, giving him a new start and a new name: Dexter. In one way, he was a lucky dog, though clearly not lucky enough.

Is it acceptable to let your shy dog avoid other dogs and people if she’s otherwise healthy and content? Dr. Jill Sackman of our Behavioral Medicine service tells Pet MD the answer is a resounding yes.

    Timid Behaviors in Dogs: Are They Normal?
    Does your dog prefer the company of just a few friends (human or canine), or enjoy hanging out solely with you? We asked the experts why some dogs are timid and whether there's anything you should do about aloof behaviors in dogs.

Have you ever heard that animals can talk on Christmas Eve at midnight? What would your pet say if they could talk?

    How Talking Animals Became a Christmas Legend
    For all its very logical and sensible legends and traditions, Christmas has quite a few strange ones too (like, say, gravity-defying reindeer). Some rare bits of Christmas mythology are even stranger still, like the one that claims that at the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve, animals gain the power of speech.
