TEDDY BEARS' PICNIC
This year 50,000 people and teddy bears came out to enjoy the 27th Annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic held on May 26th, 2013. Inside the Dr. Goodbear Clinic our BEAR AWARE Food Allergy Clinic saw over 500 bears, all with severe food allergies. Our allergy nurses, doctors and volunteers treated bears for their symptoms with epinephrine trainers, tested them for food allergy and gave each one a special allergy bracelet and a sticker. There were tiny bears allergic to eggs and big bears allergic to peanut as well as kittens and puppies allergic to fish and even some giraffes who allergic to milk. Here are some of the photos from that day!
