  1. Hi, My poor Tank was neutered this morning. He is a healthy four year old. Since coming home at 4pm, he is alert and going to the bathroom but has no appetite. Not even taking water. I’m worried as he won’t even take his pain medication. I’ve tried chicken, cheese, every trick in the book. Any advice?
  2. Dr. Linda L. Blythe, co~author of "Care of the Racing & Retired Greyhound" joins Greyhounds Make Great Pets live on July 12, 2019 to share her vast experience on the care and health of racing greyhounds which can aid current and future adopters to better understand their retired racing greyhounds as they become beloved pets. https://www.voiceamerica.com/promo/episode/116095 Greyhounds Make Great Pets every Friday at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern only on VoiceAmerica.com All shows are available on-demand on iTunes, Spotify or download. Dr. Blythe's bio: Linda L. Blythe, DVM, PhD, DipACVSMR, is a native of California, receiving her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1974 and PhD in 1978 from UCDavis. After graduation, she was recruited to the newly funded College of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon. She has taught veterinary neurology, toxicology, and sports medicine for 39 years to the veterinary students and received a number of awards for her teaching. Her research focus was initially on neurological diseases in horses, but when the Oregon Racing Commission helped legislate part of racing handle to study the problems of racing Greyhounds, Dr. Blythe began studying this special breed of dog. Initial studies were on prerace dehydration and its effect on race performance and the development of the International Greyhound Research Database as a source of information for owners and trainers. But in time, she realized that what was most needed, was a book on the care of the racing Greyhound. For this, she teamed up with Dr. Morrie Craig and Dr. James Gannon of Australia and produced the first text book, Care of the Racing Greyhound. This endeavor was supported by the American Greyhound Council and the Oregon Racing Commission which allowed Dr. Blythe to spend 5 months at Sandown, Victoria, Australia under the guidance of Dr. Gannon. This first book was well received and sold out within 6 years and she was asked to do an update. Dr. Blythe agreed, but only if it contained information about and supporting retired Greyhounds. After another 2 months in Australia with Dr. Gannon and his assistant, Dr. Des Fegan plus 2 additional years of writing, the new textbook, Care of the Racing and Retired Greyhound was released in 2007. These efforts gained Dr. Blythe along with her colleague, Dr. Craig, the honor of being inducted into the Greyhound Hall of Fame. She is founding diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation and active in promoting rehabilitation for neurological cases, injured athletes, and geriatric dogs. Dr. Blythe has published over 150 scientific articles and recently retired from the College of Veterinary Medicine.

    So this morning, our girl Deedee, was not feeling her breakfast. In fact, she barely ate it at all. She would eat a couple pieces out of our hands, but not eat all of her meal from her dish like she would normally do. When I took her out later, when she was trying to poop, she was whinning a little but not too much and her poop wasn't fully solid but not diarreah either. Later this evening, when my boyfriend came home, she still had not eaten her food. And when he took her outside for the bathroom, she still whined, and sometimes a little loud and had failry runny poop. There has yet to be any signs of blood in her poop (thank goodness!). Otherwise she is acting pretty normal. She's not playing as much as usual, but will still follow us all aorund the house. Is this something we should immediately call our vet about or wait and see if she can clear whatever may be bothering her? One of my co-workers recommended adding plain rice to her food to help her stomach, is that a good idea? Any advice is much appreciated! Deedee's Mom and Dad
  4. Gorgeous Maisie (black & white Grey) came back from a squirrel chase with horrid gash just above hind hock joint (inside). I can see a tendon quite clearly. Injury is about 2 inches X 1.5 - skin gone completely so nothing to sew - only a small flap at the top which is loose and flapping. Was away from home and because my boy (black Grey) has had a similar injury and I allowed surgery that was actually pointless and unnecessarily stressful, I don't want to go to vet. Maisie is no longer in pain - was for a day but no more. For two days now have kept it very clean and flushed it which she permitted me to do. Have not packed it with Manuka and bandaged it. I am just so worried about the visible tendon - any advice please!!!!??? I know if I go to the vet he will want to do something invasive - he always does and I really don't want my poor girl to go through it. She's had such a hard start, coming to me starved and frightened. Hates the vets so any help would be so appreciated - am I being neglectful?
  5. Rock sometimes poops in the house. Even when we're there and trying to get him to go out. He has never urinated, however. Are there suggestions, or diapers?
  6. Our 85lbs male grey has eaten something in the yard and now has terrible gas and possibly a stomach ache. Is it ok to give him pepto bismol and if so how much? Like I said he weighs 85lbs and it quite meaty. Thanks. Also any suggestion would be helpful.
  7. Hello, This is a non grey post, so I apologise for that. I joined as we are waiting to get our greyhound Peggy. However, I thought that I would still ask on here as everyone seems very helpful We found out last night that my parents dog Barney (flat coated retriever) has kidney failure he is only 5 and such a lovely dog, we were lookign forward to him and Peggy spending lots of time together and my dad is just about to retire so it's such a shame. I was wondering if anyone has dealt with kidney failure and if they have any advice for us? He is going on a special Royal Canin Renal diet from today and has been prescibed some medications. I think it is earlyish as the main symptom was excessive drinking/urination with little colour. He doesn't seem ill at all, still full of energy and lovely as ever I think apart from this he is very healthy, which will hopefully help. It only really got noticed as he just had a small lump removed from his gum (which was benign) and they did blood tests and urine tests as he leaked urine while under anasthesia which they thought was odd at the vets. How long is life expectancy for dogs with kidney failure does anyone know? Are we looking at a month or 2 or a year? We're very sad as me and my boyfriend raised him from a puppy during our Univeristy summer vacation and we lived with them until 8 months ago, so he is very much our dog as well. It would be great even he lived for another year to enjoy his time with Peggy and my dad once he retires. Any advice will be greatly appreciated Thanks
