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.
