We love to celebrate Halloween at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic – not just because it’s fun to decorate and tell ghost stories, but because it’s our vet’s birthday!
Dr. Miele through the years
We’ll tell you why on the big day.
For now, here’s a little Halloween jingle:
From pirates to zombies
From witches to ghosts
We like all the costumes
But we love candy THE MOST!
Halloween Haiku to get you in the mood:

Two dogs went missing today around 1 PM from the 1300 block of E. Little Creek Rd. in Norfolk.
They are a male Shepherd-Rottweiler mix (has a microchip; last seen wearing a collar) and a female brindle French Bulldog (no collar.)
If you see either pet, call the owner at 702-806-8957.
Please be on the lookout for “Billy,” a young male Westie.
He became lost in Norfolk, but could end up in Virginia Beach
if someone has picked him up.
“Billy” may be shy, so if you see him, don’t chase him.
Instead, call the owner at the number listed below or
call Animal Protection (757-664-7387 in Norfolk / 757-385-4444 in Virginia Beach).

The Pet Pantry is administered by the Norfolk Animal Care Center (aka “animal control.”) Help is temporary and is based on financial need. Click on the Pet Pantry link to learn how to apply for membership.
One important caveat: pets must be spayed or neutered to be eligible for assistance.
If you are not in need of assistance, please consider donating unopened bags and cans of food to the Pet Pantry.
Meanwhile, all this Nor’easter wind, rain, and car-killing flooding has gotten me thinking about the heavy storms of years past. Historically, a number of people who should have evacuated to emergency shelter during hurricanes, didn’t do so because they refused to leave their pets behind.
In response to this concern, Norfolk has opened Bayview Recreation Center to people evacuating with the following types of pets: dog, cat, bird, rabbit, rodent, or turtle; provided the pet can be crated and is not used for commercial purposes. Learn about the shelter’s Rules and Regs here.
Remember: don’t wait until the last minute to take action. Plan ahead and know what you’ll need in the event of an emergency evacuation with your pets.
