Lake Region Veterinary Center opened in 1967 under the direction of Dr. Ken Greiner. He operated out of a tiny office just off Main Street in Elbow Lake, Minnesota. He did mostly food-animal medicine and a little small animal care.
In 1974, he opened LRVC in its current location on the East side of Elbow Lake. Today LRVC specializes in equine medicine and continue to service the food-animal industry.
In 1997, we added on to the equine center to include a state-of-the-art surgical suite and additional stalls. Also, in 1997 Dr. Greiner's daughter, Dr. Kendra Greiner, joined Lake Region Veterinary Center. She is the owner of Lake Region Small Animal which focuses on small animals exclusively.
Over the past decade we have continued to increase our offering of complementary and alternative veterinary medicine, including veterinary chiropractic therapy, acupuncture and shockwave therapy.
Our most recent addition is our northern office in Crosby, Minnesota. Construction was completed in August 2005.
