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.

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.

Feel good friday! Single mother of 5 proudly poses with children in law school graduation photos: 'We did it' “I feel like with what I’ve been through as a child and in my upbringing, I can probably help some of these juveniles who may feel like there’s no hope for them,” Champs explains. “I want to be the one to fight for those children who are in these horrible living arrangements. 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

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.
