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!

      I went there today to take my dog, they are very nice and caring. They were great with my dog who is very hard to handle since she bounces off the wall. We will be going back from now on.

      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.

      Thank you so much to LOVH, you were so wonderful. My parents were traveling by boat from Florida to Morehead City, when their Chesapeake Retriever developed a bladder infection. The Vet got him in within 6hours, saw us the second we walked into the clinic. She was lovely, Blue is a nervous dog and he didn’t stop wagging his tail! The Vet gave us all the paperwork form his tests to give to their local vet when they returned home. Can’t recommend them enough! Thank you!
