Wellness & Vaccinations

Do you want to know the secret to helping your pet enjoy a long, happy and healthy life?

As loving pet parents, we want our animal companions by our side for as many years as possible. At Live Oak Veterinary Hospital, we believe the best way to ensure this happens is by making a commitment to their ongoing wellness. By bringing your pet in for regular checkups, you’ll help protect him or her from many common ailments that can affect companion animals. You’ll also give us the opportunity to identify and address potential health problems early, before they have chance to develop and worsen. These simple things can add years to your animal family member’s life.

 

An Ounce of Prevention

Our wellness services are comprehensive and extremely thorough, because we want to do everything in our power to keep your loved one healthy. At each visit, the doctor will examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We’ll also develop and implement a customized preventative care plan tailored to your pet’s unique needs, lifestyle and risk factors. This will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management and anything else we deem relevant to your furry or scaly friend.

 

Ongoing Health Management

Wellness visits also provide us with regular snapshots of your pet’s health status at each appointment. We can then compare this information against previous exams to identify any changes. This allows us to detect the signs of illness early and develop an effective treatment plan in a timely manner. With many ailments, an early diagnosis can vastly improve the outcome for your pet. The more we stay on top of these things, the better chance we’ll have of extending and improving the quality of your companion’s life.

 

Getting to Know You

Finally, annual visits give all of us at Live Oak Veterinary Hospital the chance to truly get to know you and your pet. Developing a relationship with you and forging a bond with your animal friend is an integral part of the care we provide. This allows us to partner with you in managing your loved one’s health, and also makes visiting the vet a more positive experience. The more we understand your companion’s needs, the more precisely and effectively we can develop a health care plan.

You want to see that special little critter enjoy many wonderful years. At Live Oak Veterinary Hospital, we’d love to help you achieve that goal. Call us today and let’s get started!

      We LOVE Live Oak and Dr. Lloyd! I took our Welsh Terrier, Noki, to Live Oak a couple of years ago when she was having skin issues when we were at Atlantic... Read More

      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.

      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!

      Cholia the chihuahua was attacked by two unmonitored Mastiffs and Dr. Susan saved her leg! Cho was rushed to Beaufort immediately and Susan dropped what she was doing to assist in a time of need. The hospital is a clean and updated facility, which I would highly recommend her services!
