Did you know BluePearl hospitals stayed open ...

Did you know BluePearl hospitals stayed open 24/7 during both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma? Our Florida medical director explains in this article some of the things we learned about your pets while weathering the storm.

    Hurricane 2018: What a veterinarian learned from Irma
    They say you learn a lot about yourself during a crisis. But during Hurricane Irma last year, we also learned a lot about your pets.

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.

    The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Celebrates 3 Millionth Case
    The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center recently hit a milestone when they assisted their 3 million caller, a pet parent whose Sphinx cat had ingested a high amount of toxic medication. Read more about this case, and how APCC helped save this cat's life.

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!

Hurricanes hit BluePearl hospitals in Texas and Florida last year, and our courageous veterinary professionals worked around the clock to save pets' lives. As you can imagine, we learned a lot from this experience. We wanted to share our knowledge with other veterinarians. So thanks @dvm360 magazine for sharing this article about our lessons learned!

    Hurricane lessons: Four things we learned from Harvey and Irma
    Last year's hurricane season was not kind to people or animals. We all saw how storms flooded Houston, tore through Florida and hammered Puerto Rico. As the 2018 hurricane season approaches, I've been thinking about the lessons these storms taught us. BluePearl Veterinary Partners kept animal hospitals open 24/7 in the midst of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

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.

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:

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.
