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.

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!
