Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, John Greving, grew up in Willey and spent the past three and a half years practicing at the DeWitt Vet Clinic before making the move to Manning. Greving will be taking over at AMVC in Manning for Dr. Tom Ulrickson, who will be retiring in June after over 25 years as a mixed animal practitioner in the Manning location. Greving has been working with Ulrickson for the past two weeks, and said he is happy to take advantage of this opportunity for several reasons.
Greving, who served in the Marine Corps for four years, returned to working in the swine industry for Pfizer Animal Health. This position drove his interest in attending Iowa State University, where he received his DVM in 2013. He says he is really looking forward to several different aspects of his new position.
There were pickup trucks and SUVs as far as the eye could see around the Manning AMVC offices late morning on Thursday as the community showed up in full force to welcome Greving. Dr. Ulrickson says they are thrilled to have Greving join the Manning staff and that his experience in DeWitt at a large animal practice will help him be a well-rounded vet, facing all issues or sizes of animals needing their attention. And when Greving said he had some big shoes to fill, Ulrickson said he has big feet and he’ll will work out just fine.
Greving, his wife Shelly and their three children” Olivia, who is eight; Andrew, five; and Easton two, moved to their new home south of Manning at the beginning of the year and are now settled into their home and community.
