Her practice is not always open to new patients, so you have to call and check. Dr. Bamford is an amazing vet, she's had greyhounds in her practice in the past and if she doesn't know something she's not afraid to admit it and do the necessary research or to refer to a specialist. The added bonus is that Dr. Bamford, in addition to practicing Western medicine, practices Homeopathy and Chiropractic as well as offering counseling in preventative medicine, nutrition, supplementation, emotional control, and behavior management. The practice also offers acupuncture.

This is the hospital I work at and as a tech, and owner of a greyhound, what more confidence can you have knowing 'one of you' is on the sidelines. When new clients who own greyhounds come to our clinic and I tell them I have a greyhound, I can see the relief on their faces knowing that their babies are safe and with folks who know how different this breed can be from the others.

Dr. Guillermo Couto

Dr. Couto is probably the best vet I know, period. He is brillant and possibly the top animal oncologist in the US if not the world (FYI he is also a Greyhound owner). He lectures all over the place! He is also extremely personable and if I am ever half the vet that he is... I will be very blessed!


Dr. Jonathan Dyce

Dr. Dyce is an extremely thorough and gifted orthopedic surgeon. If Sky (my Greyhound) ever needed bone surgery, ACL repair, total hip surgery, or needed to be worked up for a lameness that I could not figure out... I would go straight to Dr. Dyce!!! He did a lot of Greyhound work over in England and knows a lot about the breed. This guy is also brilliant and knows a lot more than just orthopedics... he diagnosed one of the blood donors with immune mediated polyarthritis and glomerulonephritis!

Very easily accessed from Interstate 26. My dogs love her, and she just has that special touch that speaks to greyhounds.

Not to toot my own horn, but I trained greyhounds at the Woodlands from 1993-2008. I graduated from veterinary school in 1999 and have since devoted myself to greyhound health and wellness as well as fostering greyhounds and finding them adoption homes. I currently own 10 greyhounds of my own and working with the greyhounds at the track inspired me to follow my dream and become a veterinarian. They really are my life and I care about each greyhound in my care as if it were my own.

Hi Paula!


My name is Meghann Kruck and I have been working with Greyhounds for over 10 years in a veterinary capacity and have been involved in both fostering and placing greys into new homes. I started working with them before vet school, continued to be involved and played a big part in getting them to be a part of our blood donor program again where they were fostered and adopted to loving families, and have continued working with them as a veterinarian for the past four years. I love working with sight hounds and am very knowledgable about all the little idiosyncracies of houndlies :)Please consider me for your vet list.

We are in Nepean - a suburb of Ottawa


Greenbank Animal Hospital

3160 Greenbank Road

Nepean, Ontario

K2J 4H6

Dr. Miki Shibata



We've been going there for all our cats - Dr. Shibata has been our primary vet there (they have 7 on staff). She has experience with Greys - we took our new girl there last weekend, and the adoption group here had heard nothing but good things about her.


Another thing that I thought of:


One thing we learned from her - at the Vetrinary School at the University of Guelph they use Greys to do their anatomy work, so any vet that graduates from there is experienced with Greys. Apparantly there is a lot of demand to adopt the dogs after the anatomy course is done!

I have been going here for over 20 years. Melina is wonderful with Greys and has several other greyhound patients (besides us). Very compassionate, caring, great staff. She was great when bridge angels Fritz had Lymphosarcoma and when Chloe had osteo. I've given her tons of greyhound health info and she has contacted OSU before for a problem with Sterling this spring. Love them and would recommend them to everyone!!

The practice is open 24/7, and equipped to handle all emergencies. We started using them for our diabetic cat Emily, :angel , and they see our greys Charlotte & Declan, plus our 2 cats.

The name says it all -- Dr. Deaven has several greys of her own and is the vet of choice for Keystone Greyhounds in Harrisburg. She is a one-woman practice, but she was very responsive when I had an emergency on a Saturday night. Her practice is almost an hour from me, but it is well worth the drive.
