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.
