  1. Forgive the length of this! My greyhound Molly is 11 and quite small (45 lb). We go to an integrative veterinary practice and her regular vet does not do surgery; in fact, outside vets do many of the surgeries. My girl has had previous dentals without problems. Her teeth needed a clean, so we scheduled one for Jan. 11th. I was allowed to wait during the procedure. She was scheduled for 8am and so we went. I was told at 8:45am that, due to her being a greyhound, with "notoriously dirty teeth," her dental needed to be last in the surgery suite. I could leave her there, or take her ho
  2. I adopted a 3 year old male greyhound five days ago. First day went really well great on walks, toileting fine all was good. Second day started freezing on walks and sometimes refusing to go outside. Third day was difficult to get him to go far at all. Fourth day followed advice from the rescue centre about being firm and in control using gentle pressure on lead and we got on great all walks went well but then couldn't get him to go out last thing at night. This morning I managed eventually after his breakfast to get him to go out and then at 10.30am we went for another short walk. Since then
  3. Our new hound (4 yr old male, former racer, gotcha day Aug18 2018, second grey we've had) has been such a great dog so far, EXCEPT for first thing in the morning. He waits for our alarm to sound before he gets up (and wants us up), but when he does he's so uncontrollably excited that he's a bit of a hazard to himself and us. At first it seemed more about getting fed because he'd calm down quite a bit after his breakfast and calmly go outside, but lately he is developing a habit of beginning to pee (dribbling or even just giving in and going), before we feed or can even get the coat on to l
  4. Hi all! We just adopted a 3 year old greyhound on Monday and it all has been going well so far, until last today. She peed in the house, even after we took some hefty 15 minutes walks! Is this something that is occuring because she wants to mark her territory? Or do you think that its because she is nervous? Any tips/tricks will help! We are first time dog owners :0) Thank you!
  5. Our boy Kingston is a sensitive soul, and this 4th of July was more strenuous than usual. The big boomers are not legal in our area of Colorado, but they persisted nonetheless. Since the beginning of July (they seem to start earlier every year, like Christmas adverts), the pops and bangs have been throwing him off. The 4th was the worst, of course, and caused him some real anxiety. We knew the 4th week was going to be difficult (he joined our home in June 2016, and we handled our 1st July without too much trouble), and tried to be prepared (music, blankies, some all natural calming gels). We h
  6. Help! Our 5.5 y.o. has started peeing in the house after being housebroken for a year and a half. He has been checked out by the vet w/no medical issues. He doesn't ever lift his leg when we're with him, but he seems to do it the minute we leave the house (even if we're just in the garage or yard). We know that the problem must be separation anxiety and we are working on that... but I find it so odd that he is lifting his leg after a year and a half of being totally housebroken. We have not had any lifestyle changes. Has this happened to anyone else? Any thoughts?
  7. Hello all! I have had my wonderful brindle boy for a year and a half now. Sometimes he would drink a lot of water (excessive, without stopping) and then we'd have to take him for a walk afterward. Then, he urinates for a very long time when outside. (On regular walks, he prefers to mark everything we pass). He only does this when we are home, and we are able to time his next walk for him to relieve himself. Once in a while, we didn't notice him drinking excessively and he peed in the house (usually on our living room rug that is easy to wash). When it happened indoors a few times, we took
  8. I have sooooo been avoiding starting this thread. Partly, I wanted to try to narrow down the behaviors (get to the root and all that) and partly because I didn’t want to have to catalogue all of it but….. Main issue: peeing (his not mine) where it isn’t appropriate, namely inside house, crate and car. (You want a laugh about the car – check this outWithout too much detail, maybe I can streamline this discussion. There seem to be two factors at work here: (1) his drinking habits and (2) the combination of his subtle signs (“excuse me, I glanced in the direction of the door, twice what more
  9. A year and a half ago, my wife and I got two very young rescue greyhounds. They are brother and sister and also litter mates. Next month they will be four years old. Over the summer we put up a very large fence and put in a very large dog door so they can go outside anytime they wanted. We had a problem before summer of him peeing in the house. He did it for about a month and then stopped. He would have his accidents every now and then when we would change furniture around or broke our routine. We just thought it was the boy not liking change. Now that the fence is up we didn't
  10. Sparks underwent a light general anaesthetic on Wednesday for another epidural steroid shot (for LS). He is *so* much brighter and moving so much easier already, so I'm delighted. I'm a wee bit concerned (pardon the pun) that since the anaesthetic he has been peeing like a racehorse. I mean literally for a minute or more, several times a day... and for his evening "last call" walk he didn't even bother doing his pee on everything trick, he went 5 metres from the back door to the nearest patch of grass and thoroughly drowned it. I hadn't noticed an increase in water intake, but this a
  11. This topic is just an observation we've had in hopes it might help someone else. I don't know if there has been a topic about this already. Our Ambi has continuing peeing accidents indoors. If he has to go out he needs out RIGHT NOW otherwise there's an accident. He can not go more than 5 hours during the night and usually wakes us up to let him out. The evening routine was to let him out at 6, 8, 10 and midnight to try to empty him out. He has had many tests, it's not a UTI, or anything like that, we had decided it was behavioral, until his recent annual exam. Sitting in the waiting
  12. Hi all --I've been reading this forum for a long time but this is my first post. Thanks for all your wisdom so far and for reading my long story! My wife and I adopted a grey in January of this year. We got a sweet 6-year old female, who had been racing up until October last year. She loves people and is generally very mellow and quiet. In the months after bringing her home we experienced the usual greyhound separation anxiety. She would follow us from room to room, and when we left her alone she'd cry and pee on the floor. But we worked trough it with alone training, and after about two m
  13. So my GH has learned a new trick... she pees on our bed when I have to leave her in the house. Its happened two times in the last week. I know she doesn't have to go and I know she is still a bit anxious when I leave (barks for a bit then gets quiet). Suggestions? She doesn't eat when I leave (haven't found one she loves yet...she isnt interested in peanut butter) and I was thinking of crating her at this point. We havent done that because I do leave her infrequently. Could this do more stress than good? Other simple cause? Its gotten dramatically warm... could be the issue.... who
  14. Good grief. We've had quite the week with our newish (6 weeks) greyhound. So far in the past few days, we've had gash on leg, loose poop on rug, trip to the vet, put on antibiotics, and now, she peed in the crate today. She was only in there a couple of hours, but she is muzzled, and I am wondering if she was just bored/frustrated since she can't chew or anything. There is a tiny possibility that our other, smaller dog went in there and did it -- but I don't think so. I just happened to walk by and notice it was wet/stained. The only other time she peed in the house was first thing in the
  15. I caught Jack marking the couch. He has usually been clean in the house, with some exceptions when I first got him (and he was afraid of the neighbours, long story) and an instance of fear-peeing himself. No idea what to make of this or how to stop him-- he showed guilt upon being scolded in the act, but not much.
