  1. Hi LaFlaca, It was chicken and wheat. We now have him on a limited ingredient diet (Natural Balance Potato and Duck). The food elimination is very time consuming and frustrating, but definitely worth it! Best of luck with Lola!
  2. Our 3 1/2 year old grey went through the exact same thing with the anal issues and it was finally diagnosed as food allergies. Apparently food allergies can cause an itchy bum. We switched foods and haven’t had another issue to date.......it’s been about 6 months now. Btw, he licked his anal area so much, he had sores and it would bleed!
  3. If Aimee would be so kind to post the protocol she is using for her Florida hound......we have a Florida hound who we have been treating for over a year and 1/2 still with hooks!
  4. 3greytjoys- Thank you so much for all the information and for sharing about your dog! We have an appt with a behaviorist and have implemented all of your suggestions. Although it doesn't seem like it from my post, it is just myself and my husband in our home. My mom and niece were just visiting when we had issues occur. I am learning so much from this forum and am thankful to the folks who are willing to share their information and knowledge. It's how newbies like myself learn how to care for these special dogs. Our first concern is for our hounds sense of security and happiness.
  5. Thanks for your responses. You have given us a lot to think about!
  6. I forgot a few more details. He has also growled and barked at my husband like this twice when bumping into him. He also growls with resources such as food and toys. Thanks
  7. Hi all, Have had our boy about 6 months now (first greyhound, 8th dog) and have had some incidents that have led up to a bite in the face today. He is 4 years old and he was describe to us by the adoption agency as somewhat bold, fearless and able to be an only dog. He is not affectionate and does not seem to enjoy petting from us (lip licking, turning his head away, etc). Funny thing is, he is ALL about strangers, licking them, nibbling them, melting into them and begging for petting. Since we have had him, multiple times, he has growled, Jumped up and charged at us like he was going t
  8. MandysMom: Did you have to give the Panacur every other week for the ENTIRE nine months? Did you do 5 days each time? Thanks !
  9. HeidisMum and tbhounds: Did your dogs have soft poop and diarrhea the entire time they were infected? Thanks!
  10. Greysmom, Thanks for your response! The people that had to treat for 6 months, was that every 3 weeks for the full 6 months? Congrats you were able to kick them! Every two-3 weeks, we have done 5 days of Panacur x3 treatments and one treatment of the Drontral Plus. It's scary how resistant they are!
  11. Hello, We have hooks and diarrhea and have gone through multiple treatments of Panacur and one treatment of Drontal Plus. Reading through some posts, there seems to be some vets that have put them on long term treatment of Panacur, etc. Could anyone tell me what your protocol was that finally rid your grey of these vile parasites? Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi all, New grey owner here! Have posted once about bonding but having some health issues we need advice on please. We have had our 3 y/o boy about 11 weeks now. He came to us at a weight of 82 lbs and his racing weight was 80 lbs. He had mostly soft stool from the beginning with some with slight form. We put him on eukanba when we first got him, which was a switch from Purina dog chow adult from the rescue group. He was put on doxy for about a month because his white cell count was high and the vet thought maybe he had tick borne disease. He also was diagnosed with hooks, which

  14. Thanks to everyone for your insightful replies! Please keep 'em coming! This forum has been such a gift to help me navigate through new grey ownership!
  15. Hello, First and foremost, thanks to all on this wonderful forum who give us newbies somewhere to go for all the knowledge you so graciously share! We just adopted a male 3 y/o grey 6 weeks ago. We have had dogs before, but never a greyhound. He is primary with me during the workweek as I work in a different town where we live and my husband is at home with our lab. The new grey and I stay at with my mom for about 5 days, then we go home to my husband and other dog on weekends, holidays, vacations, etc. When my husband is off or on vacation, he comes up to stay with us at my mom's. I am
