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.

Did you know — Hampton Roads art galleries are a wonderful source for finding artworks featuring pets and wildlife. [Check out this former exhibit selection of animals in art from the Artists Gallery in Virginia Beach.]

The Suffolk Art Gallery is currently hosting an exhibit that features artworks of many different subjects — and as always, I’ve scouted some works featuring animals in art. There are more to see, though, so head out to the Suffolk Art Gallery before the show closes on October 19, 2018.

This slide show features just some of the works currently on view. Frames and artists’ names are not shown; colors may appear different in these photos than in actuality.

Looks like we tempted fate by blogging about making a Disaster Plan, back on September 4th.

Although the track of Hurricane Florence remains somewhat uncertain, she is now predicted to move just south of Virginia, which would deliver us only a glancing blow.

However, hurricanes are notorious for doing the unexpected. Remember Hurricane Matthew?

With that in mind, and with the potential for hazardous driving conditions around the region on Thursday and Friday, we have elected to cancel office hours at Little Creek Veterinary Clinic on those days. Depending upon property damage and flooding after the storm, we will likely be closed Saturday, as well.

Dr. Miele will be in the office Wednesday morning, September 12th, to provide wellness care. Patients needing diagnostics or extended treatment will be referred to an appropriate hospital.

BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Town Center will be open during the storm. If your pet has an emergency, call 757-499-5463.

We’ve talked about Disaster Planning before, since coastal Virginia is known for taking hits from tropical storms, minor [so far!] hurricanes, and Nor’easters. But with flood zones appearing to grow and deepen, more residents may be forced to evacuate their homes when severe weather is on the way.

[Virginians, find your storm surge flood map here.]

Disaster planning can also help in an emergency — evacuation due to a fire, for instance — so it is recommended year-round, according to Dr. Donald Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian.

Nationwide Pet Insurance has produced this infographic to help you remember the important things when making your plan.
