  1. Hey everybody. Hope you are all well and feeling good. Crazy weather in South Central PA. 64 degrees today!!! Our 3 year old male Loco has a sore foot. About a week ago he jumped off of his couch and we think that he may have gotten his foot caught in his blanket. After he came down, he was yelping and crying and holding his back foot up. He limped around for about 2 minutes and then begin to walk normally. I took him out to pee and he was walking normally and continued to do so for the next 2 days. He played with his ball and did his daily zoomies and was perfectly normal. Now when he gets up
  2. Hey Everybody. I have a food question. We adopted Loco, an 80lb male in February, straight off the track. Of course he had hook worms and "pudding poop". We have now tried him on three different foods. Diamond Naturals, Nutro Chicken flavor and now he is on Nutrish beef and pea. He now has well formed stools but most of the time they are still too soft to get them all picked up. He has tested negative for hook worms after 2 rounds of treatment. We are giving him a probiotic every morning and we are using Milk bone Minis as reward treats. Any ideas on a medium priced food that might help with t
  3. Hey everybody. Our newly adopted male Greyhound Loco has a hard lump about 1/2 inch below his right eye. It is slightly larger than a pea and is "floating" underneath the skin. You can actually move it around! He has an appointment April 15th for his first checkup and of course we will ask the Vet about it but I was just wondering if any of you have experienced anything like this. Thanks
  4. Hey everybody. Hope you are all well and feeling good. I have a question. How many times a day does your Greyhound poop? We are new Greyhound parents and we have Loco, a very sweet and loving boy. He weighs about 77 lbs and and is 2 1/2 years old. He eats 5 cups of beef flavored kibble a day ( made by Diamond food co), 2 in the morning, 1 at noon, and 2 in the evening. He is always hungry and is very food motivated. He poops on average 5 times a day. We are giving him some canned pumpkin with his food and his stools range from mushy to formed but soft. Any comments would be appreciated. Thank
  5. Sorry, his name is Loco, short for Locomotion which was his track name. He is 2 1/2 and weighs 77 lbs. We have had him for 2 1/2 weeks. We also have 2 small dogs as well and they all get along well together. He is the most loving and friendly dog I have ever seen and is very outgoing as well.
  6. Hey everybody. This may be normal Greyhound behavior but I am a new owner and it strikes me as odd. We have a living room and kitchen arrangement that is open at both ends. In other words, our hound is able to take a walk in a circle through both rooms. He does this on a regular basis and we have learned that if he takes the walk at a trot, it sometimes means that he has to poop and we take him out and he takes care of his business in short order. The problem is that we can't always tell for sure and therefore we make lots of trips outside that are not productive. I have seen him take as many
  7. Hey Everybody!! We are new here and we have just adopted our first Greyhound. What magnificent creatures they are. We have 2 small dogs as well. We have had Loco for 5 days and he seems to be settling in ok. He is good with the other dogs, one wants to play with him but is a little afraid of his size. The other one could care less about the newbie. The first 3 days Loco would go to the door to let us know it was time. Now all of a sudden, he is marking and `once just flat out peed with no warning. He also pooped twice in the house yesterday!!! This big boy came from a track in Florida to an ag
