How did a dog named Jake wind up 1,000 miles away from home? We may never know. Who are the heroes that returned Jake to his family in Arizona? Several extremely generous people and one microchip.

    Volunteers drive lost dog thousands of miles to return to owner
    20 volunteers and four days of driving, but more than a year after he was lost, Jake the coonhound made a 2,000 mile journey back to his family.

Did you know BluePearl hospitals stayed open 24/7 during both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma? Our Florida medical director explains in this article some of the things we learned about your pets while weathering the storm.

    Hurricane 2018: What a veterinarian learned from Irma
    They say you learn a lot about yourself during a crisis. But during Hurricane Irma last year, we also learned a lot about your pets. HURRICANE GUIDE: Emergency information, tracking map and storm resources Literally hundreds of dogs and cats came in to BluePearl Veterinary Partners' 24-hour animal hospitals in the Tampa Bay area during last year's hurricane and its aftermath.

When her cat Rosita accidentally ingested med...

When her cat Rosita accidentally ingested medicine meant for her dog, BluePearl veterinary technician Amanda Fernandez did what 2,999,999 people had done before her: She called the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center. “Thankfully, prompt medical attention and the guidance of APCC’s knowledgeable staff allowed Rosi to make a full recovery with ‘nary a hitch in her giddy-up,’ Amanda says.” Amanda and Rosi learned that they were APCC’s 3 millionth case when their call was answered, and they want to say, “thank you to the entire staff at APCC for doing what you do—all day, all night; every day, every night, without fail.” If you need to reach the Animal Poison Control Center, call (888) 426-4435. And by the way, most BluePearl hospitals also are open around the clock. Our veterinarians are experts on many toxic substances that pets get into, but we sometimes call the poison control hotline also. It's a great resource.

    The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Celebrates 3 Millionth Case
    The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center recently hit a milestone when they assisted their 3 million caller, a pet parent whose Sphinx cat had ingested a high amount of toxic medication. Read more about this case, and how APCC helped save this cat's life.

In honor of Cute Puppy Monday (if that’s not a holiday, we think it should be!), we offer this shot of 10 ridiculously adorable golden retriever puppies. One of them, Dakota, was a patient at our BluePearl hospital in Nashville, Tenn., when she had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. Luckily one of board-certified emergency and critical care specialists was able to treat Dakota and help her get back home to her loving family. Thanks to rayoflightphoto.com for the great image!

Hurricanes hit BluePearl hospitals in Texas and Florida last year, and our courageous veterinary professionals worked around the clock to save pets' lives. As you can imagine, we learned a lot from this experience. We wanted to share our knowledge with other veterinarians. So thanks @dvm360 magazine for sharing this article about our lessons learned!

    Hurricane lessons: Four things we learned from Harvey and Irma
    Last year's hurricane season was not kind to people or animals. We all saw how storms flooded Houston, tore through Florida and hammered Puerto Rico. As the 2018 hurricane season approaches, I've been thinking about the lessons these storms taught us. BluePearl Veterinary Partners kept animal hospitals open 24/7 in the midst of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

Great news for State Farm customers. We also love this photo the Houston Chronicle used from last month's Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival. Thank you for being our sponsor and your support of the community Erwin McGowan Agency!

    State Farm, Texas' biggest auto insurer, to drop rates by 3%
    State Farm is decreasing auto insurance rates by 3 percent in Texas, expecting to save the average customer $35 a year. With the exception of a smaller rate decrease in January, State Farm hasn't lowered its rates since 2011 as the industry grapples with an uptick in motor vehicle accidents, expensive auto repairs and volatile weather.

A very playful 9-week-old Labrador retriever named “Pup Pup” did the unthinkable... she swallowed a metal bar protruding from a fence and was unable to shake herself loose. Pup Pup was saved after a midnight run to BluePearl in Sandy Springs, where Dr. Nicolas Berryessa was able to remove the metal rod without surgery. @wsbtv has the full story.

    Puppy recovering after swallowing long piece of chain-link fence
    ATLANTA - A puppy in foster care is recovering after she got part of a chain-link fence stuck inside her. Pup Pup, who's just 9 weeks old, was at a foster home in Blairsville last Friday night, when her caregivers heard a commotion in the backyard.
