Katherine Carter
Veterinarian / Owner

Dr. Katherine (Katie) Carter has been the owner of River Road Veterinary Hospital since 2003. Since before she could spell the word “veterinarian,” Katie has never strayed from the path of becoming a doctor for animals. She earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Auburn University in 1997. That was preceded by a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science (Pre-Vet) from The University of Connecticut. Dr. Carter has worked as an emergency clinician at the Eastern Maine Emergency Veterinary Clinic in Brewer, and as a mixed-animal veterinarian for five years in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. Over the years Katie has raised and exhibited Teddy guinea pigs, fancy mice, and chinchillas. She lives in her hometown of Bangor with her husband, Matthew, who is an architect and the founding principal of Carter Architectural Design. They have two teenaged sons who make them proud every day. The Carters share their home with three Papillons, a Saluki, and four cats. When not in the office, Katie can usually be found in the garden or on a cruise with Matthew!
