  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.
