About Dr. Russell Earl, DVM

As a 1986 graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Russell Earl returned to his native New Jersey to pursue his lifelong ambition of a career in veterinary medicine.

After working as an associate veterinarian in a couple of different practices for the first decade of his career, Dr. Earl branched out on his own forming a veterinary relief service providing interim services to over 35 veterinary hospitals throughout northern New Jersey. Dr. Earl relief services (operating as Hunterdon Veterinary Associates) have been much in demand and entrusted by the veterinary community for over ten years now, including the Long Valley, Flanders, Chester, Mendham, Hackettstown, and surrounding areas. Within this time frame, Dr. Earl also provided services to a local, 24 hour emergency hospital.

Additionally, Dr. Earl is a member of the NJVMA (New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association), the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association), and AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association). For the past 6 years, he has served as the chairman for the NJVMA Hospital Inspection Committee. He is also a co-author of a 2005 NJVMA publication entitled Guidelines For Preventing, Recognizing, and Treating Pain in the Hospital Setting.

In his leisure time, Dr. Earl enjoys music of all kinds, hiking, theater, working out at the gym, and just hanging out with his three daughters.

Dr. Earl wishes to personally welcome you to the Long Valley Animal Hospital “where cold noses meet warm hearts”.
