Winnie Was Treated With Respect

Our 7-year-old, 7-pound miniature pinscher-Chihuahua mix became suddenly ill with what our primary vet thought was immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, and advised that she be rushed to the emergency hospital as she could die before morning. Thankfully, we did so. After receiving intensive care during the night, in the morning she was transferred to BluePearl, who […]

A Serious Eye Problem Threatened Chiquita’s Life

Dr. Anja Welihozkiy, in the Sarasota office, saved the vision of our 16 1/2 year old Chihuahua, and probably also saved her life. As a very senior citizen, Chiquita enjoys lying in the sun, eating snacks and riding in the basket of my husband’s bicycle. Unfortunately, she developed a serious eye problem that threatened her […]

Treated My Best Friend Like Family

My dog, my best friend, my companion, was put to rest at the BluePearl in Louisville, Kentucky. He was old and it was time. He was treated like family, and I will never forget how well he was treated. The entire staff was caring, sympathetic, and professional. God bless them all. RIP my companion. Kevin […]

BluePearl is in a Totally Different League

Our little Peke got sick through the night and we woke to find she was vomiting and had bloody diarrhea. She couldn’t get comfortable and wouldn’t drink. I have had bad experiences at other emergency clinics with my previous two dogs, so I was very anxious about taking my baby to anyone but my vet. […]

Felt Like a Miracle Taking Deidra Home

Our miniature French poodle, Deidra, suddenly became sick and was diagnosed with IMHA (immune-mediated hemolytic anemia) and ITP (immune thrombocytopenia). She was transferred to BluePearl-Midtown in critical condition (after 2 weeks in ICU from another hospital). Her anemia had been persistent and non-responsive to immunosuppressive medication. Dr. Eatroff started plasma exchange procedure (removing plasma with […]

You Will Never Be Forgotten

Our African grey parrot got sick. We called our vet here, and the avian vet wasn’t in, so they recommended we take Charlie to BluePearl-Tampa. There we met Dr. Shakeri. Never in my life did I meet someone so caring, compassionate and gentle. To our dismay, Charlie wouldn’t make it, so we made the “choice.” […]

Sadie is Home Thanks to You

Our dog, Sadie, had been lethargic, rarely eating and just didn’t seem like herself. We took her in to our local vet and she improved slightly after IV fluids, antibiotics, and an overnight stay there. However, after a few days, she was continuing to deteriorate. When she added vomiting and not eating at all to […]

Rocky’s Symptoms Were Frightening

When I brought our sick 5 1/2 pound yorkie, Rocky, in on a Sunday evening, his legs were collapsing. He was flinching continually, as if in sharp pain. First guesses were possibly poisoning or a brain tumor. We were devastated. A blood panel test revealed very low calcium, which can cause such frightening symptoms. Rocky […]

Gussy Loved His Radiation Treatments

Gussy, my 4.5-year-old Cairn terrier, was diagnosed with a basal cell carcinoma on his tongue and my vet recommended Dr. Lachowicz at BluePearl. Gussy’s tumor was located very close to a major artery. They could not be sure all the cancer was removed during the biopsy, so it was recommended that Gussy have 15 radiation […]

Gracie Was Attacked at the Dog Park

Our 4-month-old chocolate lab was bitten by a great Dane at the dog park. She sustained large puncture wounds on her face and ears. We were very shaken up when we ran through the doors of BluePearl with her in our arms. We were greeted and assessed quickly and brought back into an examining room […]
