Our Doctors - Monon Animal Hospital - Indianapolis, IN

Dr. Ken Simpson and Dr. Sara Rueter worked together as associate veterinarians in Broad Ripple for several years before co-founding the Monon Animal Hospital.  They are committed to practicing the very best possible primary care veterinary medicine for your pet and adhere to the highest medical ethics and medical care. They respect the close bonds between pets and their owners and seek to help families provide the high quality care needed for their pets to live long, healthy, comfortable lives. Come see why your neighbors from Nora, Broad Ripple, Carmel and Indianapolis already know them.

Both doctors are experienced, capable and attend many hours of continuing education each year to keep up with medical advances and expand their skills.

Ken Simpson, DVM Veterinarian

Dr. Simpson graduated from Purdue's School of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.  He truly enjoys the unusual and challenging cases that are often seen in general practice and has a special interest in dermatology,  dentistry and pain management.   He loves to educate and inform clients about how to improve the quality of their pets' lives.  Dr. Simpson has practiced in the Broad Ripple/Nora area for over 20 years and enjoys the diversity found in this community.

Dr. Simpson is a native of Florida, but has a great affection for England, where his father grew up.  He has on occasion returned to his ancestral roots by attending small animal continuing education courses overseas. Some of his favorite memories include a visit to the James Herriot Museum in Thirsk, England and seeing where his boyhood hero practiced. 

Dr. Simpson, his wife Ellen and their son Patrick share their home with a 3-legged Beagle named Lou (even though he hates that description!)and a 4-legged cat named Albert.  When he isn't busy with his work or his family, he enjoys playing guitar. 

Sara Rueter, DVM Veterinarian

Dr. Rueter graduated  from the University of Illinois School of Veterinary Medicine in 1995.  She has been practicing veterinary medicine in the Indianapolis area for over 20 years and worked in Broad Ripple for close to five years.  Her areas of special interest include soft tissue surgery and internal medicine cases.

Dr. Rueter’s philosophy of practicing veterinary medicine is to always be mindful that every pet is a loved member of a family, and she considers herself to be the other “family doctor.” She enjoys working with clients to develop the best possible healthcare plans for their pets.

Dr. Rueter resides on the north side of Indianapolis with her husband, Greg, (who is also a veterinarian) their three children Sam, Megan and Ben, two cats (George and Mama Sophie) and a Golden Retriever (Josie).  Outside of work , Dr. Rueter enjoys running, reading, cooking and spending time with friends and family.
