Who We Are

A few words about us...

When it comes to veterinary care in Beaufort and Carteret County, you have lots of choices. What you’ll only get with us is a personal connection that makes you feel like part of the family.

That’s because we base our care on treating others as we would like to be treated. For you, this means open, honest communication. For your pet, it means toys, treats, and gentle, reassuring touches.

You see, at Live Oak Veterinary Hospital, our goal is to become more than just your pet’s doctor. We want to become your trusted partner; your invaluable resource; a shoulder to lean on, and an ear to listen.

We want to make visits to the vet a positive experience – something your best friend not only tolerates, but actually looks forward to. As a result, the level of care we deliver is simply second to none.

Whether you’re new to the area, recently adopted a new pet or you’re tired of being treated like just another number, give us a try. We’re confident that once you’ve experienced individualized health care with a warm, personal touch, you’ll want to partner with us for life.

Call your Beaufort veterinarian today, or better yet – stop by and visit! We can’t wait to meet you!

      Many thanks to Dr. Lloyd and her staff for the special care that they gave to our precious cat, Louis when he was so sick . We will never forget their care and compassion. Thank you so much for being there for Louis.

      Dr. Loyd was very caring and concerned about my pup Hines. We were able to schedule an appointment last minute as we were on vacation and needed some immediate care. They even called a few days later to check on his condition. I would definitely return again and would recommend this vet to anyone.

      After moving to the area our pooch Marley sustained and injury. We found Live Oak on the internet and they had a same day appointment available and we immediately took him up there. Now two years later we still use them on a regular basis for all his veterinary care and boarding. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Marley starts and ends his visit excited with his tail wagging. So glad we found this place.
