While Dr. Brenda rose to fame following her appearances in the reality TV series, The Incredible Dr. Pol, she has been working at Pol. Veterinary services since 1992.

In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Dr. Brenda Grettenberger.
Dr. Brenda Grettenberger was born on the 23rd of February 1967 in Eaton Rapids, Michigan. Born and raised on a farm, Dr. Brenda was surrounded by animals from a very young age. Not someone to give out a ton of interviews, Dr. Brenda has revealed very little about her personal life. She graduated from Michigan State University and has been working with Dr. Pol ever since.
Meeting Dr. Pol and Professional Career:
After graduating from Michigan State University in 1992, Dr. Brenda was looking for work when she came across a call for help in a local magazine.
“I answered a help wanted ad in the AVMA journal (magazine) to find my way to Pol Veterinary Services.”
The call for help was from Dr. Pol at Pol Veterinary Services and Dr. Brenda moved across the town and started working at Dr. Pol’s Veterinary Services. For the first few years on the farm, Dr. Brenda faced a ton of criticism as she was the only female veterinarian on the team. In an interview with the National Geographic, Dr. Brenda revealed that it took some time for the veteran farmers to get used to having a female veterinarian on the job. However, Dr. Brenda quickly established her credibility and was the go-to person for Dr. Pol if he needed anything done.
Nearly 28 years later, Dr. Brenda has established herself as one of the best veterinary doctors around the farm. She was cast alongside Dr. Pol in the reality TV series, The Incredible Dr. Pol. An animal lover, Dr. Brenda also relishes the versatility of her profession and stresses that veterinarians should always have a plan B.
“Life as a veterinarian is full of variety. I never really know what I may have to do from day to day. We start the day with a schedule and a plan, but the plan gets modified as needed depending on what phone calls come in and what emergencies happen. The ability to multi-task and work with plan B are very important skills.”
Personal Life and Leaving the series:
Not the one to reveal personal information, Dr. Brenda has kept her silence when it comes to relationships.
On the other hand, it was rumored that Dr. Brenda would be leaving the series in its 16th season. The rumor arose after Dr. Brenda’s diminishing role in the series. However, the doctor has been featured in the 17th season and continues to work with Dr. Pol. As of now, it is safe to say that Dr. Brenda is not even close to leaving the series.
