The Florida Hospital for Animals in Tampa is giving its staff a new nickname — Code Blue.
The code word comes from a local pet owner who has a very rare disease, according to the hospital.
In addition to the new name, the hospital will now use the phrase “code blue” in its social media accounts.
The name Code Blue is an acronym for Code for Cats and Dog, which is an abbreviation for code.
Code Blue refers to the color that comes from the cat’s fur.
“The code comes from that color, and that’s how we refer to ourselves,” said the hospital’s director of public affairs, Michelle E. Boggs.
She said the name Code Green was chosen for the same reason.
“It’s a reference to our veterinary team, which has been really amazing,” Bogg, who has been a veterinarian for 20 years, said.
She says the hospital had no idea what the name would sound like.
“There are a lot of people who are passionate about their animals,” she said.
“We wanted to create a brand that really resonated with the public.
We also knew that we wanted to be respectful to the animals.”
The hospital, which opened in 2013, has about 4,000 cats and dogs in its care.
The hospital has been operating for a few months.
Brough said she’s been in communication with the local Animal Control Officer about the change.
She plans to post the change on the hospital website when she’s finished.
The change will also be made to the website for the Animal Control officers and the Animal Services Manager, who oversees all animal care.
She also said the department would change the way it handles complaints from animal owners.
“We have a policy of never charging for an animal in our system,” she explained.
“So, if an animal is reported, the vet will look at the paperwork and come to a conclusion about whether or not the pet is in need of care.”
She said there are currently two animal control officers in the Tampa Bay area.
She said one is an animal control officer and the other is an on-call animal control person.
