“And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem…to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn.”                Luke 2:4-7

May the spirit of the season remain with you
throughout the coming New Year!
Merry Christmas,
from Little Creek Veterinary Clinic!

At Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, we’re offering Trupanion’s FREE 30-day pet insurance certificate to benefit new dogs and cats between 8 weeks and 14 years old.

The catch is, you must activate the certificate within 24 hours of your pet’s examination at our clinic to get the free 30-day coverage. But don’t worry — Trupanion is available to you 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. So, even if you see us on a Saturday, you can activate your certificate on a Sunday.

Pets are always surprising their owners with their antics — unfortunately, some of those tricks can lead to a hospital stay. When that happens, you’ll be glad your pet was covered with veterinary pet insurance.

Trupanion’s 30-day pet insurance trial period lets you check out their service and even compare them to other pet insurance companies — all while acting as a safety-net as you shop for coverage during the trial period.

Want more benefits? How about:

  • No caps
  • No limits
  • No penalties for filing claims
  • No waiting periods (waived during trial period only)

[*Some restrictions apply. Available for pets between 8 weeks and 14 years of age. Certificate must be activated within 24 hours of the veterinary visit. Pre-existing conditions are exempt from coverage. Trial period lasts 30 days; coverage will be discontinued at that time unless pet owner arranges regular paid coverage. $250 deductible will apply to eligible claims filed during 30-day trial period. Complete details, including coverage & restrictions, available at www.Trupanion.com.]

We’ll do our best to offer the Trupanion certificate for all new patients, but feel free to ask us about it, too!

If you are a current client of Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, we want to be sure you are receiving our reminder notices for your pet’s health maintenance needs.

If you have not received an email reminder from us in over one year, we may not have your current email address, or our reminders may be getting routed to your spam folder. Be sure to add us to your Safe Senders list, so that our messages will appear in your inbox.

Some clients have indicated that they no longer check email regularly, and would prefer a postcard instead.

We can also place a phone call to your main contact number, if you prefer.

Even if you are receiving our email reminders, we are happy to adjust the method by which you receive your notices.

Please Contact Us to let us know your preferences for receiving health care reminders for your pets:

  • email
  • postcard (include your mailing address)
  • phone (include a phone number)
  • you no longer need to receive our reminders

Your pet’s health is important to us, and we want to be sure that we are communicating with you in the style you prefer. Let us know how we can help!

Bonus: This article explains the importance of communication between you and the veterinarian when your pet is sick or hurt.

Reminder: You have more options for flea, tick, and heartworm control + convenient home delivery!

At Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, our flea, tick, and heartworm control options don’t stop at our stockroom doors! 

Choice       Accuracy        Convenience

You have the option of choosing a non-stock product [i.e., one that we do not carry in-clinic] from a trusted source: our vendor-based pharmacy. We will place the order for you, ensuring accuracy in the order. And for your convenience, the products are shipped directly to your door.

Authentic Product       Guaranteed Performance

Some online pharmacies import counterfeit products from overseas or other sources, because they are not authorized by U.S. manufacturers to sell authentic flea, tick, and heartworm control. And some product guarantees are voided when flea, tick, or heartworm control products are purchased through a non-veterinary source.

When you order non-stock products such as Advantage Multi, Bravecto, Revolution for dogs, Sentinel Spectrum, Seresto for cats, Trifexis, or others, through our vendor-based pharmacy, you can be assured you are getting the authentic product along with available manufacturer’s product guarantee.

Contact Us to let us know the name of the product you’d like to order. Remember: some products are by prescription only, and require a doctor’s exam (and possibly a blood test) before ordering.

Bonus Link: Thinking of ordering cheap pet products from your favorite online mega-store? You may want to think twice. Here’s why.
