  1. my grey had a small rash on her that has since faded but she has this dark lump on her stomach. is this a tick?? or any ideas on what it is? i tried to remove but no luck. she doesn’t seem bothered by it.
  2. I noticed this odd rash on my greyhound tonight, she’s not itching it or anything...any ideas on what this could be?
  3. Hi all! We have had our greyhound for almost two months now and things are going great! We took her to the vet and the only issue we found was that she does have hookworms and we are on medication for that and she still has an occasional accident but way less than when we first got her. One thing we noticed is that her skin is looking pink and she seems to lick it a lot. Normally she has tiny little nicks on her leg/feet and she licks those occasionally but this is different as it is her whole foot or her leg and her skin looks pink. Any ideas? Or am I just overthinking?
  4. Hey all, us again 🙃 Annie is settling in great. We figured her playtime roaching was just a sign for "give me bum scratches" and complied (not the actual butt, just the meaty part of the legs). Anyway, new issue! We are $250 deep in collars and harnesses that don't work for us 😬 We've tried a cotton martingale and it's not made well so the hardware twists on the fabric. But previous grey experience taught me that the synthetic woven styles rub off fur We've tried the following harnesses: EzyDog quickfit in XL - goodish but she's between sizes and can easily back out o
  5. Noticed this on my pup's inner thigh. Vet friend has no idea what it is but doesnt think its Lyme. It's not tender or itchy and doesn't bother her. There's no swelling or drainage or moisture. Anyone ever see anything like it? Thanks!
  6. Almost a year ago i adopted my greyhound, when we adopted him i noticed he had a crusty nose, vets just said it was properly due to poor kennel diet and it would improve over time. Nearly a year has passed and his nose is still the same, sometimes the skin flakes off in big chunks and his nose looks normal again, but then it always goes back to being hard and crusty. I've tried changing his diet, oil and ointments and nothing seems to work... he doesn't seem to be in discomfort but it can't be very pleasant for him! Does anyone else have this problem/ know what it could be? here is a l
  7. Hello: I am a new poster here and, true confession, I don't have a grey, I have a weimaraner. But I am looking for information from an active caring forum and this one seems to fit the bill more than any other. Plus Greys and Weims are all short-haired and speedy so likely to have some commonality in their issues. I hope it is okay for me to post here! My weim jumped a ditch about six weeks ago and dislocated a metacarpal bone on the front paw, extremely swollen etc. He has been in a splint to the shoulder until two weeks ago at which time he went to a cotton batting and vet wrap and duct
  8. Has anyone seen anything like this? We're wondering if it's some sort of insect bite, since we found one on Joy a couple weeks ago and then just the other day we found this one on Gilgun. They're both in roughly the same area (lower back). Joy's healed after we clipped the fur around the wound, but Gilgun's still looks pretty bad, as you can see. Any advice on treatment? Or what might have caused this? Thanks!
  9. I have a male greyhound, Dixon, who will be 12 in April. He's doing really well for his age and is generally very healthy. On Sunday, I noticed a small, crusty spot on his side, about the size of a quarter, that looked like he had glue stuck to his fur; the fur seemed stuck to his skin. There was no wound that I could see, and it didn't bother him. I just figured he rubbed up against something. Over the last few days, it's gotten bigger (about 4" x 3"), and now it's definitely a sore. It's still crusty, his fur is still stuck to his skin, and it's very painful. It's not swollen at all (yo
  10. Right around the holidays, Jack got what looked like a largish zit on his thigh. It seemed to pop, and now is a raw round spot. It doesn't seem to cause him pain (he lets me touch it) but he's been grooming at it on and off. Does this look like something that should be worried about?
  11. Hello all, I am a new owner and member with a few questions about my hound. As soon as I brought Veggie home back in March I noticed some itching, shedding, and dandruff, but I thought that would die down after shedding season had passed and she settled into her new home. Even though she was vetted prior to her adoption, I took her to my vet after a week to get her vaccinations on record and get a wellness check. During her visit my vet suggested 50mg of Benadryl twice a day to help with the itching and she claimed the dandruff would stop when the itching/shedding stopped. It has now bee
  12. Hello all, I have a new greyhound. Our last one has been gone for 10 years, and it was past time for another. her name is Daisy, and she is great so far. But the skin under her neck seems very red and raw. Probably from her collar, but is there anything recommended for this? I keep her collar off inside, but it has to go on when we go out, so it just gets worse. Thank you!
  13. Hi everyone, Winnie and I just moved to Chicago from Rhode Island, and I'm now exploring the dog park situation in the area. We're actually just back from Prairie Wolf dog park in Lake Forest (http://www.lcfpd.org/preserves/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.view&object_id=27649&type=P) the most fantastic dog park I've seen so far -a 44-acre fenced area including ponds, woods, grassy meadows and fields for dogs to run, swim, and play off-leash. Winnie was in heaven. On the bright side, I'd never seen her enjoying herself that much. I was delighted to see that, even though she disappeared i

    When we adopted our male he had quite a few scars, and during his time with us I've noticed that he often has small wounds on his legs that are healing. Our female has no significant scars, and rarely any wounds. Just wondering if some greyhounds genetically have thinner skin than others, or would that difference be more accountable to levels of play?
  15. As the cold weather has rolled in, Jack's been getting dry/flaky skin. It doesn't seem to be itchy (he's not scratching) or otherwise irritated. He also gets regular fur-friendly supplements (fish, etc), and his coat is shiny. My suspicion is it's from having the radiator on much of the day. Any tips on how to combat the dryness?
  16. So my Greyhound, Dillon, recently came down sick. I took him to the Vet and they checked him out and said he had Hook worms and also a virual or bacterial infection. I went ahead and had them do the full blood work check including the T4 test. Everything came back great on his blood work and the T4 level was great the vet said. So they sent us home with Panacur paste for the hookworms and Cephalexin for his "cold." Three days after I took him to the vet I noticed that he was covered in bumps. They were all over his torso and really reminded me of Chicken Pox (which they weren't but for illustr
