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.

Did you know we have a full time staff of animal caregivers for all the fish, mammals, birds, reptiles, and invertebrates? We met with mammal and bird caregiver, Laly to ask a few questions... Q: Where did you go to school? A: I earned my Bachelor’s degree in comparative psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi and am currently working on my Master’s degree in environmental management at the University of Houston- Clear Lake. Q: What is your favorite part about your job? A: I love the pure joy and excitement an animal gets when they figure out a new behavior we have been working on. Q: What is the most important part of your job? A: I would say that the most important part of my job is facilitating the ability for the everyday person to develop a connection with an animal they may never have had the opportunity to see up close otherwise. I feel this connection is the driving factor behind so many efforts to protect and conserve our environment and the animals we share it with. Q: What is your favorite behavior you have trained? A: My first favorite behavior is a color discrimination behavior with Wednesday, one of our green wing macaws, where we use sign language to tell Wednesday what color of toys we want him retrieve. My second favorite behavior is one you will see in our show this summer. If the host of the show forgets a line, Gretchen, one of our rats will bring them a cue card on stage. Q: If you could tell Facebook one thing, what would it be? A: This planet is completely and utterly interconnected. Every effort you make to protect your favorite animal ends up protecting all the animals in that same habitat.

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.

To try to help them reconcile with the family, or if not, give them the same opportunity that I had.” #feelgoodfriday https://yhoo.it/2GXwZU4
