Spring is here, and many pets love playing outside and exploring the garden. While your pet may enjoy the time outdoors, it's important to be mindful that some common plants can be highly toxic to pets. BluePearl veterinarians explain how to keep your garden safe and avoid plant toxicity emergencies in this ABC Action News article:

    Local vets warn about toxic plants after dog nearly dies from accidental poisoning
    TAMPA, Fla. -- Veterinarians from BluePearl Veterinary Partners are warning homeowners about the danger of toxic plants and other garden dangers this spring. This comes after a Tampa pet owner's dog nearly died after ingesting parts of a toxic plant. While sago palm may look like a simple green, leafy plant, it is actually highly toxic to dogs.

Finn the rescue pup developed signs of a serious, chronic illness shortly before his second birthday. BluePearl's Dr. Jean Ferreri, who is board-certified in veterinary internal medicine, diagnosed him with primary portal vein hypoplasia, an incurable disease that affects blood in the liver. Finn's loving owner Christina Fried established Finn's Fund to assist other families whose dogs are facing a vascular liver abnormality. Read more about this special pup and Finn's fund:

    Rescue dog inspires new fund for canine patients with liver conditions
    After spending his first few months on the streets of New York City, Finn the mixed-breed dog found his family in Christina Fried '94, who adopted him into her home in 2006. Just before his second birthday, however, he started showing signs of a serious, chronic illness.

While we tend to suffer from allergies respiratorily, dogs pick up allergens through their skin. Left untreated, a small allergy problem can become more serious long-term problem. Dr. Chris Cook, our veterinary dermatology specialist in Michigan, talked about allergies with @USAToday for their annual Pet Guide. That handsome bulldog is Henri, a dermatology patient of Dr. Noel Radwanski in Tampa.

    Like people, dogs can struggle with seasonal allergies
    When spring arrives, many of us humans are reaching for the tissues and allergy meds. Turns out our dogs may be suffering, too. Instead of respiratory symptoms, most dogs with seasonal allergies have dermatological reactions - irritated skin, ear or paw infections and a tendency to lick, bite or scratch the affected areas.

Easter lillies are commonly found in homes and gardens this time of year. However, many people are unaware that these gorgeous flowers are highly toxic and somtimes fatal for cats. BluePearl vets warn cat owners about the dangers of Easter lillies:

    Easter Lilies: Fatal Attraction!!
    Easter lilies are a common fixture in households across the country this time of year. What many people are unaware of is the risk that these gorgeous flowers hold for curious household cats. Many members of the Lily family are toxic to cats, and ingestion of very small amounts of the plant can lead to signs of toxicity.

    A natural disaster, such as Hurricane Harvey, can be deeply traumatizing for those who live through it, for those who respond to it, and for those who know someone directly affected by it. It's critical that we take care of ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities when disaster strikes.

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.
