Meet Our Veterinarians

Susan Turk, DVM

Medical Director, Veterinarian

Dr. Turk-Reiger grew up in Rockaway Beach, NYC and spent her summers at her family’s dude ranch in Highland, NY.  It was here that she developed her love of animals and knew at the young age of 8 that she wanted to be a veterinarian.

Dr. Turk-Reiger graduated from the University of Florida Veterinary Medicine in 1989 and quickly began working with horses and farm animals at practices in NJ.  Caring for horses was what Dr. Turk-Reiger fell in love with, so for 9 years she owned a horse practice in NJ.  After starting a family of her own, she decided to sell her business and continue practicing small animal medicine at area hospitals.

Dr. Turk-Reiger joined the medical team at All Creatures Great and Small in April 2017. She’s excited to provide exceptional medical care for animals such as dogs, cats, and small mammals and will also happily see some farm animals such as horses, goats and sheep.

When not practicing medicine, Dr. Turk-Reiger enjoys spending time with her husband, Jim and 3 daughters, Mikayla, Jamie, and Katie and riding her horses!

Pablo Ruiz, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Ruiz always wanted to be a veterinarian.  He is originally from San Sabastian, Puerto Rico, where as a young child he helped to take care of the animals on his grandfather’s farm.  He has fond memories of early morning feedings of all the animals and he happily remembers being chased by geese and protective hens!

Dr. Ruiz attended the University of Puerto Rico and Kansas State University for his undergraduate studies.  He also worked at Kansas State University School of Veterinary Medicine as manager of the barn facility.  From 1992 to 1996, Dr. Ruiz attended the University of Tennessee where he graduated with a degree in Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Ruiz joined the medical team at All Creatures Great and Small in May 2016.  He enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, but has particular interests in internal medicine, emergency care, surgery, and radiology.  What Dr. Ruiz likes most about being a veterinarian is helping to preserve animal quality of life and strengthening the human animal bond.
At home, Dr. Ruiz has two dogs, a poodle named Jack and a hound mix named Gigi.  When he is not practicing medicine, Dr. Ruiz enjoys spending time with his wife, Cecilia and playing with his two sons, Kyle and Riley. Dr Ruiz loves to travel and learn about different cultures, visit museums, scuba dive, cook and garden.

Jennifer Kimble, DVM

Veterinarian

Originally from Northern New Jersey, Dr. Jennifer Kimble’s love for animals led her to Texas, where she attended Tarleton State University and completed a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science.  From Texas, Dr. Kimble traveled north to attend Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she graduated with a DVM in 2004.  Dr. Kimble also pursued an Equine Medicine and Surgery Internship at Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital in Oconomowoc, WI.

Dr. Jennifer Kimble joined the medical team of All Creatures Great and Small in September 2017.
Before becoming part of the All Creatures Great and Small staff, Dr. Kimble practiced animal medicine in her home state of NJ for over 10 years.  Her special interests include neonates, ophthalmology, lameness and internal medicine.   She enjoys interacting with patients and clients and developing strong relationships with all of them.

In her spare time, Dr. Kimble enjoys gardening, spending time outdoors, and showing and breeding horses.  She loves attending to her own pets, which include an energetic German Shorthair Pointer named Charlotte and several horses.  Dr. Kimble lives in Morris County with her husband and their two children.
