Entry into Beaufort

Dear valued clients,

With our state of emergency and stay-at-home order in effect, Beaufort is now only allowing entry to full-time, year-round residents of Carteret County; those who were sheltering in place in the town, and people who work for essential businesses.

Our clients will need an appointment card or prescription bottle to enter the town. Please know that we are providing these for all clients as they rebook and reaching out to provide to those who don’t have the correct paperwork.

Please give us a call to make arrangements to receive what you need during this time. We are working with all of our clients to ensure full coverage.

The team at Live Oak Veterinary Hospital is here for you.


Dr. Susan Lloyd
