Charlotte Read-Kydd, BVSc, MRCVS aka, "Dr. Charlie
Trained at the prestigious University of Liverpool in England, and Cornell University, NY, “Dr. Charlie” has been in practice since 2003. She started work as a large and small animal veterinarian in England and Wales, and then moved to Hunterdon County where she is now a resident of neighboring Frenchtown, NJ, with her husband Angus. After over a decade of experience in local practice, Dr. Charlie has had the opportunity to identify the specific needs of our local community.
Through Stockton Veterinary Hospital, it is her intent to create a facility consistent with these sensibilities and a vehicle to continue to serve her growing family of patients and owners.
She also enjoys her three dogs, Darla, Hugo and Tatty, her orange cat Schmerb and 8 chickens. Dr Charlie is excited to be located on the Delaware river due to the benefits it offers – biking, kayaking, hiking the trails, and all the river towns along the way.

LEAD VETERINARY TECHNICIAN
Ashley Males, a lifelong resident of Hunterdon County NJ began her love affair of working with animals more than twenty years ago. Her extraordinary passion became very evident well before the tender age of 12 when she began her career in animal welfare & rescue.
Ashley's meticulous and vast experience within the equine, canine and feline species has fostered undeniable popularity and trust between herself, her colleagues, the animals & their owners.
Having the opportunity to work daily towards the goal of improving the lives of animals is the most gratifying position she has and will ever hold. To be able to live out and fulfill this dream has been nothing short of amazing.
In her spare time, you can often find Ashley and her son Blake hiking mountains, reservoirs, and road tripping with their two over-sized lap dogs, Kylie (the Australian Shepherd/ English pointer) and Norman (the American Bulldog). When she returns from her expeditions, you'll then see them saddling up Klik Klak (a Dutch Warmblood) while Flash (a Welsh pony) keeps a watchful eye over the day's events.
