Today, we conclude our journey through Animals in Ancient Art [Part 1 here; Part 2 here], featuring works on view at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, VA. The Chrysler Museum is free to the public, so you can enjoy a day strolling amongst the exhibits.

These works of art, used for everyday purposes or ritualistic activities, come from the Roman Empire, Greece, and Egypt. As shown here, animals have long inspired the imaginations of artists and artisans. The oldest object featured in this gallery is an Egyptian tomb lintel with hieroglyphs, dated to 2375-2287 B.C.E. [Before Common Era] — which means it is over 4,300 years old!

Brrrrrrrrr…the Hampton Roads temperature roller coaster is about to take a dive, after delighting us with warm-ish weather recently. (Did you notice the bugs woke up and started flying about?)

Beginning tonight and continuing into next week, Norfolk and Virginia Beach are expected to experience temperatures below 40° F during the overnight hours. That’s pretty chilly, even with a coat on.

Make plans to bring your “outdoor” pets indoors overnight, so they can stay warm and healthy. Keep in mind that cold, dry air can irritate the lungs and worsen existing breathing problems in pets. 

Check here for more cold-weather pet safety tips.

Stay warm!

We have good news for itchy pets in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and the rest of Hampton Roads: the local veterinary dermatology specialty practice has re-opened in our area.

Norfolk veterinarians, like Dr. Donald Miele at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic, refer tough, tricky, stubborn, and unusual skin cases to the veterinary dermatologist for testing and treatment.

You may recall that the dermatology practice had its offices at BluePearl, a veterinary emergency hospital in Virginia Beach. Now, Dr. Marlene Pariser has opened Coastal Virginia Veterinary Dermatology [CVVD], offering the care our clients have come to know and trust, in a new location in Virginia Beach.

[Note: Dr. Pariser’s office is in Virginia Beach and is not associated with Little Creek Veterinary Clinic.]

If you are a client of Little Creek Veterinary Clinic and you would like your pet evaluated by Dr. Pariser, please Contact Us to schedule a referral examination. Once your referral paperwork has been forwarded to CVVD, you will be able to schedule an appointment with the veterinary dermatologist.

We look forward to partnering with you and with Coastal Virginia Veterinary Dermatology, to keep your pet comfortable, healthy, and happy for years to come.

Ready to schedule a referral appointment?  Contact Us online or call our office at 757-583-2619.

We are thankful for you —
our clients, patients, friends and family!

Best Wishes, from Dr. Miele and Jennifer
