    April showers bring May flowers.  Spring is filled with beautiful new growth: grass, shrubs, flowers, and even weeds. Okay, the weeds are usually pretty ugly, but regardless of looks many pets take this opportunity to graze on this new found growth. This can be extremely dangerous as many spring time plants - including rhododendron and azaleas - are highly toxic to pets and can be fatal. If you are ever in doubt, please reference this comprehensive list of plants.

    Last summer, the greater Savannah area broke many heat records with over two consecutive months of 90+ degree days.  The current season isn’t expected to be any cooler.  Anyone who goes outside for a prolonged period of time needs to know the dangers of heat stroke, what can be done to prevent it, and steps to take should they suspect someone is suffering from it.

    Spring is here, and that likely means your family is about to be spending a lot of time outside on the soccer and baseball fields, at the park, and on the beach.  Spring brings beautiful weather, and with it, a variety of allergens.  In the south, tree pollen season is roughly February through May, with pollens from oak, cedar, and pecan trees being the worst allergy triggers. Over-the-counter (OTC) oral antihistamines are a popular choice for allergy sufferers.

    Approximately 7.6% of the US Population has some form of asthma.  Regionally, nearly 70,000 people in the 20-county WTOC viewing area suffer from this chronic condition.  For many asthmatics, physical activity can trigger an attack.  This event is known as exercise-induced asthma.  For most people, however, asthma is an allergic disease.  As with other allergies, those with a family history of the condition are more likely to develop it.
