At Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, we’re praying that Hurricane Irma stays away, but we advise pet owners to have a plan in place if this storm — or any other — should head our way.

Dr. Donald Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian, recommends that pet owners take the following precautions, whether they evacuate, ride out the storm at home, or head for a pet-friendly emergency shelter:

  • Gather your pet’s vaccine records, especially the Rabies certificate; you may need to show this information at shelters or hotels. (If your pet is not current on its vaccines, Contact Us to schedule an appointment today.)
  • Ensure you have at least a two-week supply (or more) of your pet’s most-needed medications. Drug refills can be difficult to come by if veterinary clinics are unable to re-open right away.
  • Pack a first aid kit. Suggested contents can be found in the booklet “Saving The Whole Family,” available at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic for $2.00.
  • Ensure you have adequate food and water for your pet — typically a minimum of two weeks’ worth, if evacuating. If there is time, order extra Prescription Diet food.
  • Be sure your pet can be identified with a microchip ID, ID tag, or tattoo, if it should become separated from you.
  • Gather leashes, collars or harnesses, and pet carriers, to safely transport your pet.
  • Pack a favorite blanket or toy, treats, and food/water dish to give your pet a sense of comfort and familiarity.
  • Continue to treat your pets for fleas and heartworms, as pests can become more problematic after a storm.
  • For dogs: pack a supply of waste bags. For cats: pack a small litter box with litter or paper towels.

“Saving The Whole Family,”
available now, at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic.

UPDATE: This pet has been reunited with his owners.
(Photos removed).

This distinctive-looking intact male dog was found on Branchwood St. in Norfolk just before 3 PM today. 

He was travelling without a collar and does not appear to have a microchip.

The owner should be prepared to show proof of ownership, to ensure he goes home with the right person.

UPDATE: WE are happy to report this pet has been returned to its owner.

(photo removed)

According to the owner, someone entered the home in the Azalea Garden Road / Norview area, on Tuesday, August 23rd and walked out with this Yorkie dog, “Chico.”

The stolen dog, which has been reported to Norfolk Police, is a neutered male (bearing a green neuter tattoo on its abdomen), nearly 4 years old, weighing 6 lbs.

The owner reports that the dog has a “bad haircut” with 4 bald patches on his body.

If you know of someone who has recently acquired a Yorkie dog matching this description, be aware that this person may be in possession of a stolen pet.

The person who took “Chico” was likely watching the house when it happened, as the owner had just taken the dog out for a walk moments before.

Have you seen this Pomeranian?

Creamer is a 9 year old female dog that went missing from the Larrymore Lawns neighborhood in Norfolk, VA on Monday, August 22nd.

Her body is shaved, except for her head and tail, and she is no longer wearing the cone collar shown here. Creamer weighs approximately 5 lbs, but she may lose weight if not found soon. She looks like a puppy, but is an adult dog.

Creamer has some medical issues that will be noticeable to the finder and that require daily treatment. Her owners are anxious to have her back.
