Dr. Lucretia Greear DVM, CVA

Owner, Veterinarian

Dr. Greear is the lead Veterinarian here at the Woodhaven Animal Hospital. She specializes in holistic treatments and has an extensive background working with cancer patients. Dr. Greear grew up in Ohio and studied veterinary medicine at Michigan State. Dr. Greear has always wanted to take care of those that don’t have a voice of their own. Opening and running her own practice has been her passion for a number of years. Dr. Greear is married and has four wonderful and extremely active boys that are all involved in sports. When she’s not at the hospital you’ll find her being THAT sports mom, yelling and screaming, cheering them on. Dr. Greear has several pets, including dogs, reptiles, chickens (yes chickens), and bunnies.
