If you are looking for excellent veterinarian care on the Outer Banks, I recommend speaking with Dr. Jay Taylor at the Outer Banks Veterinarian Hospital.  The Outer Banks Vet Hospital is located at 3723 North Croatan Highway in Kitty Hawk.  You can reach Dr. Jay Taylor at 252-715-1407

Dr. Taylor provides excellent care for all pets.  For routine appointments to emergencies, your pet is in excellent hands.  

(For full disclosure:  Dr. Taylor is a friend of the author.  He comes highly recommended due to his excellent care for both my dogs.  I have 1 dog in particular, a 6 year old American Pit Bull Terrier who suffers from canine epilepsy, that Dr. Taylor has twice been able to save.  That above all drives my recommendation.)
