  3. We are so sorry for the loss of your precious Bowie. Please post a picture of Bowie. There are so many losses that the numbers seem overwhelming at times. We know so many hounds through this forum and other social media. We invest our time, energy, effort and emotions on our hounds hounds and the hounds we know and love near and far. Every loss is a loss to us all. It is why Hope for Hounds does what it does. We WILL make a difference!
  4. Many Greyhound owners have other breeds of Sighthounds living in their homes. Hope for Hounds welcomes them all! Show us the other breeds of Sighthounds in your life

  6. I am trying to post from Flickr but am not sure which code to use so that it loads as a photo and without the printed url. I also tried to upload/drag a file as noted and got the message "You can only upload a total of 0 MB Please contact us for assistance. Help please...
  7. You really must try the upholstery brush. Gustopher P thought that was the BEST!
  8. The nice thing is that donations don't necessarily have to be "Greyhound" items. We have also invited the "Pittie" community who have joined the GHI Blood Bank and have numerous Pitties as donors. Thanks again for your interest and YES! Clean out those closets and drawers!!!!
  9. The link below will take you to The Greyhound Health Initiative resource page where, if you scroll down, you will find many links to articles that your vet may appreciate. There are also several articles by Dr. William Feeman or Dr Stack online that give overviews of Greyhound Kidney function numbers. They are easy to find.. https://www.greyhoundhealthinitiative.org/resources/ One of Dr. Feemans articles http://vet.osu.edu/vmc/sites/default/files/import/files/greyhound_pdfs/faq/KidneyFailure.pdf

  11. The company that produces it is Zoetis with its parent company being Pfizer. Pfizer has separated its vet/animal division from the human med division. I ran into the drug rep for the company when I was at the vet with a hound and had a very informative conversation with him about this product as well as gathering a pile of literature on Apoquel (Oclacitinib). Seems to be a good product. My vet was very interested. If it works half as good as they say it will be a good thing for dogs. Lots of info here. https://www.zoetisus.com/bmst-minisite-apoquel/index.aspx
  12. Please continue to follow Lena's journey with Brian and Suzie. As many of us are aware, the decision making process can be difficult, the journey strewn with obstacles and hearts wanting to make the best decision for our hounds. A Journey Through Osteosarcoma (Part 4)
  13. Grey Talk has always been a wellspring of information about our sighthounds. It is a place where we can learn, discuss our hounds, share information and share our hounds. We hope that as you follow Lena's journey, you benefit by gaining a greater understanding of this disease that takes so many of our beloved hounds. Thank you Brian and Suzie for sharing this personal journey with us. A Journey Through Osteosarcoma (Part 3)
  14. Please continue to follow Lena and her family as they share their personal "Journey Through Osteosarcoma". All of us within this GreyTalk community have been touched by this dreaded cancer within our own hounds or the hounds of others. It's very seldom that we get to take this journey in such an intimate way and learn at the same time of the many emotional decisions that need to be made along the way as well as the many options that may be available .
