  1. As you may know Grace suffers with corns. She has three on three different toes of one front foot and two on one toe of the other and we have tried different remedies for the last two years since they appeared. For the last six or seven months I have been taking her to one of the various the parks near me in the car so she doesn't walk on any hard ground, and using a dog nail grinder I've been grinding the corns and her nails down when she jumps into the back of the car before we go to the park. (It saves me bending down ) If she has to walk on hard ground I've been putting a baby sock ov
  2. from an e-mail sent to Greyhound Health Initiative members: August is Corn Research Month The Greyhound Health Initiative (GHI) knows that corns are a problem for many of our Sighthounds. Because research is an important part of our mission, GHI is collaborating with Richard Doughty, DVM and Frode Lingass, DVM with the Norwegian University of Life Sciences with a study to help determine if there is a genetic link associated with the occurrence of paw pad corns. We need volunteers to help collect DNA samples as well as donors to help fund this research project.
  3. All, Kevin just turned 11 in December. He is having mobility issues that are worsening in recent months, particularly the last several weeks. It think he may have Lumbosacral stenosis. His current symptoms are an increasingly sinking/weak back end when standing still (such as when eating), difficulty rising, difficulty managing his rear legs when getting off of the sofa, shakiness on soft surfaces, knuckling under on occasion (which he is still able to correct), occasionally dragging a rear leg a little, general stiff movement, stiffness in his rear end (trying to turn around he can become s
  4. Hey everyone, We adopted our 5 year old grey last April. She's been an amazing pup, but has been struck by a massive corn in her left hind leg. She's been lame for nearly a month while we waited for it to form, and now has a pulled groin as a consequence of it all. The corn was hulled today. Leading up to the procedure, she's been incredibly aggressive when approached and touched lying down. We've avoided triggering her this way as much as possible. But unfortunately - she never growls, resorting immediately to snaping & biting. She bit a friend recently and now she's become aggre
  5. Apologies if this has appeared before. I had to take Grace to the vets two weeks ago because she was limping badly. The vet said it was a corn and suggested operating as a possibility which I declined as it hadn't worked previously. I asked if it was worth trying Bazuka (a proprietary corn treatment for humans)? He said he couldn't recommend it but don't let her lick it and to come back 10 days later. 10 days later I saw a different vet at the same practice who used to be a vet at the greyhound tracks and doesn't believe surgery is the answer to everything. She hulled the corn and foun
  6. I can't believe I'm writing this, but I think we may have found a cure for our greyhounds' corns! Our 9-year-old female, Joy, has had terrible corns for the past year or so. It got so bad that she was lame on one leg and could barely walk even with pain medication. We tried everything (hulling, duct tape, Gorilla tape, Burt's Bees, O'Keeffe's, azithromycin, ichthammol, lysine, Kerasol), but nothing helped. Then we ran into a pediatrician at a greyhound event, who told us how he treated his greyhound with cimetidine (brand name Tagamet), which has been used in humans to treat viral warts (see,
  7. Hi everyone! Our girl has an appointment tomorrow afternoon with a new vet who is experienced in corn hulling (our current vet will only do it under anesthesia -- so yeah, there's no way). He wants to do a comprehensive exam first and then will give me a quote on the cost of the procedure. This new vet has very good reviews online, except that he is very expensive. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who can give me an idea of a reasonable price for this procedure (or how much you were charged by your vet)? I'm trying to avoid sticker-shock. :-) I know there ar
  8. Just wanted to give a big thanks to everyone who has contributed to the variety of corns posts out there. My boy was really suffering yesterday, so I Epsom salt soaked his paw, then put some bag balm and wrapped it in a plastic bag and the next morning (today) he is SO much better. Anyway, if anyone is looking for a quick corns resource here are links to several Grey Talk threads on corns. http://forum.greytalk.com/index.php/topic/198277-greyhound-corns/ http://forum.greytalk.com/index.php/topic/231694-treating-corns/ http://forum.greytalk.com/index.php/topic/288777-corn-hullin
  9. My 3 years old greyhound has started limping about 3 weeks ago. The first thing I did is to check her foot/pads to see if there wasn't any sign of injury there. I couldn't really see anything except one tiny little dark dot on one of her pad. I took her to the vet who checked her foot, leg etc. and couldn't find anything obvious. She wasn't worried about the tiny dot. I left that day with Deramaxx for a week. The medication really helped the limp but when I ran out, it came back as bad as it was. Also, I have to mention the limp is not consistent. Sometimes, it's very subtle, sometimes it'
  10. Echo is our first greyhound and spent her first time at a kennel 2 weeks ago. When she came home we noticed a slight limp in her rear right leg. We figured she likely pulled something running zoomies during her play time. It's been about a week now, and based on my research she has the symptoms of a corn forming. I wanted to get some second opinions though. Please see the image below and let me know what you think. http://imgur.com/3j9jQQ6
  11. Hi all, I hope you don't mind me joining your great forum but I am in desperate need of some advice and it seems like greyhound owners could be my best shot at some balanced opinion. I have a 6.5 y/o Mastiff who weighs in around 85kg. He is now classed as an OAP as giant breeds typically do not live beyond 8 years of age. The past few days my partner and I have noticed some slight, intermittent limping but other than that he has been fine. Last night I took him to the vets (expecting him to have developed a bit of arthritis) and they have said he has corns on both front feet (main,
  12. My Henry has been bothered by corns for the last 6-7 months. I have found a vet that hulls them for me, but it seems the time betwwen hulling is getting shorter and shorter. My vet told me that his corn is the worst she has seen. I bought some wartade but I don't know when to apply it. Any suggestions? I just got his corn hulled and it is now covered with duct tape.
  13. I apologize for the length of this post, but it is a long story. In March 2008, my DH and I adopted our first retired greyhound, who was 2.5 years old at the time. We picked him because he was soooo happy to see us when he was brought into the adoption agency's office that he smacked his tail into the walls and started bleeding all over the place. We took him home (with his happy tail all bandaged up) and began our adventure. We also adopted a sweet and playful girl 6 months later, directly from the racetrack. Before I get to the bad stuff, let me tell you what we love about our boy. He is
