Attention, Clients of Little Creek Veterinary Clinic:

Mid-month reminder emails have been sent, for pets that are due or past-due for a check-up and boosters.

If you are not seeing our emails in your Inbox, please check your Spam or Junk folder, as they may get routed there when we send notices to many clients at one time.

If you are not sure of your pet’s vaccine status, please Contact Us online or by phone (757-583-2619.)

A lot of changes can happen to your pet over the course of the year. Let’s work together to keep your pet happy and healthy!

To our military families:

The Virginia Zoo is OPEN for Veterans Day and to honor those who have served, active duty military, veterans and their families can enjoy $5 admission November 10–18, 2018.

Go a little wild this Veterans Day —  you’ve earned it!

Today we continue our journey through Animals in Ancient Art, featuring works on view at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia. The Chrysler Museum is free to the public, so you can see how impressive these works are, up-close.

As shown here, animals have inspired objects created for daily use and ritual use for many centuries. The bond between humans and animals is not a modern creation; animals have been revered for their strength, wisdom, and as symbols of good fortune throughout history.

Learn more about the symbolism of animals in ancient Chinese art. 

The artworks in this gallery were collected in Persia, China, and Japan. The oldest object in the selection presented here is a Chinese wine jug featuring birds and fish; it is dated to approximately 500 BCE. 

This is only a sampling of the items you’ll find in the museum’s collection. Enjoy!

We’re ready for Halloween — are you?

Say “hello” to Brom Bones and his pet rat, Templeton.

Speaking of a reason to change your look: two old favorites on our shelf — Dermal Soothe spray and Oxyfresh Pet Oral Hygiene — have revamped their packaging and labels.

Here they are, so you’ll know what to look for:

There are scarier things around Norfolk and Virginia Beach this Halloween than witches, ghouls, and ghosts.

Watch out for foxes, raccoons, bats, and skunks — common carriers of Rabies, a deadly virus that can be spread to animals and people. 

Check your pet’s Rabies vaccination status — if it’s due or past due, make an appointment today to update your pet’s Rabies vaccination — don’t wait!

[If your pet is a patient at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic,
be sure to Contact Us.] 

There is no cure for Rabies. And Rabies is always fatal. That is why preventing Rabies with a vaccination is one of the most important things you can do for your pet and your family — and it’s the law.

If you’ve been looking for a good reason to dress in a matching costume with your dog before Halloween — we’ve found just the thing for you: Barktoberfest Dog Walk & Festival, featuring a Pets & People costume contest! (Details below).

Other highlights of the day include the Dog Cake Walk, Bobbing for Tennis Balls, Demonstrations, Dog Yoga, and more.
