The Peeps and jelly beans you find in your Easter basket are generally not toxic to dogs, but they can lead to gastrointestinal upsets, Dr. John Gicking, our criticalist in Tampa, told the Dodo. It's the solid chocolate bunny you have to be wary of. Here's how to keep your pup safe this Easter:

    What Happens To Your Dog If He Eats A Chocolate Bunny?
    Long considered an Easter staple, these adorable cacao creatures can cause your dog some serious discomfort - or worse. "The toxic part of chocolate for dogs is something called theobromine, which is a caffeine-like substance," Gicking tells The Dodo. "Dogs are more sensitive to the caffeine-like effects of theobromine than humans.

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.
