  1. If he checks negative for Hookworns, you might want to consider Olewo dehydrated carrots. I had a similar problem with my Grey. Did extensive research (including this forum) and found out that a lot of people give their dogs this for loose stools/diarrhea. My Grey’s stool firmed up within 24 hours. I give it to him with every meal and haven’t had a problem since.
  2. Have had my 2+ year old red male Greyhound for about 4 months now. Love him to death. Virtually no issues, can leave him alone to roam the house for hours without a problem. Zero heath concerns. Zero stress issues. When I first got him, I would brush him every couple of days and get a small amount of hair, nothing unusual. Lately, when I brush him, nothing, nada, no hair. His coat is pristine. I should note that I live in Northeast Ohio and the weather the last 6 weeks has been extremely cold. Im probably OCD, but is there any reason for concern?

  4. New to site, first post. Have had my 2.5 year old male Greyhound for 3 months. When I got him he was about 3 weeks off the track and weighed 67 pounds. His ribs were prominent. The adoption agency said he was lean and could use another 3 to 5 pounds. I have been feeding him 2 cups of Purina Pro Plan Chicken and Rice with a little baked skinless chicken breast twice a day, about 1/3 cup. He loves it and it agrees with him. Solid stool,etc. He now weighs 70 pounds and I can only see an outline of his last couple ribs. Just right to my untrained eye. He gets 3 good walks a day, 20-40 minutes a walk. Should I cut back on the Purina to 1 and 1/2 cups twice a day to maintain his weight at 70 pounds? I want to continue with the skinless chicken breast. It helps maintain his coat. Thanks
