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!

      Great doctor and staff . Very accommodating for my 224lb English mastiff who is fearful. Extremely knowledgeable about all animals. Great prices. Very fair and very honest . Dr Lloyd is very patient with her patients and there humans :). She also removed a major tumor from my guinie pig. Big or small she fixed them all. My dog likes going there and although fearful he does pretty good compared to going anywhere else . I highly ,highly recommend this office. We have the best experience every time we go . My dog who doesn’t like anyone likes going there . Definitely a five star establishment
