Dr. Tyson is the best, she is very Greyhound savvy, in fact, when she explains test results to me, she will say often times:" And that is perfectly normal for a Greyhound".


I've been taking my dogs to her for over 4 years, and this week she really out did herself. Spud needed daily checks and bandage changes, she offered I could just drop him in the morning, and pick him up after work. She sometimes "forgets" to charge me, or the charge is zero, I get a discount, not sure why, she doesn't charge me for leaving him there all day, they claim they love to have him. And, the kicker, since he needs daily attention over the weekend, she offered to meet me at the office Saturday and Sunday to re-bandage him, she apologized that she would have three crazy kids with her. Are you kidding me? This morning I ran into her while dropping Spud off, she carried a small yappie under each arm. Obviously she has her hands full, yet she comes in for my dog, because he needs it, and she didn't want me to have to pay e-vet rates. Price are really reasonable, the staff is very friendly, and when I had to sent Darla to the bridge a few years ago, they were so very compassionate. She does have a bunch of cats running around, I think she took them in or they were dropped off, so when I take Karma in, I have her on a very short leash. Apparently she also does acupuncture, though we haven't had to try that....

I see there are only a couple vets in Alberta and I was wondering if any grey owners on here living in Alberta, know of any vets in Calgary that are maybe specific to Grey's?! Or have one veterinarian that knows their stuff about them?!


I'd love to hear from anyone!

Thanks so much!!

I'm hoping to add to the Greytalk Vet List if it isn't too late...

I don't want to be accused of self promoting or inappropriate use of the list but I saw that Dr. Kellogg (DocKellogg) had posted on the list previsouly (Hi Christine). I just left OSU and miss all the GHounds I was seeing and putting back together thanks to the great work by the track vets (Dr. Lori Bohenko - hello), rescue groups and the OSU Ghound Goup (Hi Cristina and Amanda - miss you). I thought I would at least put the info out there and let you all decide.

As of 1/1/14, Dr. Carol Macherey at Grassmere Animal Hospital (Nashville, TN) has retired. The three other vets at the practice are also grey-savvy, however. I'd especially recommend Dr. Walter Clark, who co-owns the hospital with Dr. Macherey.

We're moving from the southwest suburbs of Miami soon, but we've been very happy with our vet of the past ~7 years, Dr. Bill Winchester, who doggedly (haha) worked through things with one of our dogs that had a whole constellation of strange maladies over the years, many of which stumped various specialists. His clinic isn't the sleekest (you know you're walking into a veterinarian's office--there's no mistaking it for an Apple store like some others I've seen...) or the fanciest or filled with all the latest and greatest technology, but he won't rest until he solves a problem (and if he can't crack the nut, he's not too proud to refer you to a specialist); he's very open, detailed, and helpful for the humans; and it's very clear that he genuinely loves his patients.


His information is:


Name of vet practice - Eureka Animal Clinic
Name of vet - Bill Winchester, DVM
Street address of office - 11326 SW 184th St.
City, State, Zip - Miami, FL 33157
Telephone number 305 253 6754
Office hours and emergency - Don't recall the exact hours, but in addition to normal business hours, they're open until 7:00 one or two days a week and on Saturday mornings. They do not offer 24 hour emergency care.

She went above and beyond to save my greyhound, Solo, when he was only three and had a platelet count of 1/10th os what it should have been. She called all over the country to find how to help my seemingly healthy boy who could have bled out with only a small cut. She finally correctly diagnosed him with Babesia and a chronic case of Rocky Mtn Spitted Tick fever and after treatment he lived happy and healthy for another 7 years to the age of 10.

Dr. Tam Mengine received her DVM degree from the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003, and then completed a one-year rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Texas A&M University. Following her internship, she moved to Philadelphia, where she worked as an emergency clinician at VSEC, and then as a general practitioner at Ardmore Animal Hospital. During that she time developed a passion for the unique challenges presented by the older patient. In 2010 she became a founding member of the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care, and is currently a member of their Education Committee. She developed a Companion Animal Quality of Life Scale, in 2011, which she has shared with other veterinarians via the IAAHPC's continuing education program. In 2014, she became one of the few veterinarians in the area to achieve board-certification in Canine and Feline Practice, from the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.

Does anyone know of any greyhound (I actually have a gaglo now) knowledgeable vets in the Los Angeles area? I see the one in N. Hollywood but I was wondering if there are any in the south bay/westside area.

I just moved back to the LA area recently, after 12 years away. As someone had mentioned here, I was taking my previous greyhounds (and this galgo) to Dr. Kumar at Burbank Pet Hospital in San Jose when I lived there...so there's another vote for him! :nod

We absolutely love Baden. They're knowledgeable about greyhounds and always willing to learn more. As a small practice, they really get to know you and your pets. They're very supportive of making whatever choice works for you. Both vets are fantastic, so no need to request one or the other.
