Need Track Location For Medical Reasons, Asap Please


Recommended Posts

I'm at the speciality clinic with Murphy and they would like to know where he may have lived. Am I right that Lincoln Park is/was in Rhode Island or is there more than one?

eta: Did this track close? His former owner (who bounced him) swears he came from Alabama, but the adoption group brings their dogs up from 2 tracks in Orlando, Florida.

He was owned by Driven Racing, Inc. All I can find under that name with Google is motorsports companies (more than one, unfortunately).

 

His littermates (not owned by Driven Racing) ran at Birmingham their entire careers, so I suppose some Alabama ties are possible.

 

ETA: His littermates both started racing in Birmingham twomonths before he ran at Lincoln Park. Makes you wonder if he was in Birmingham, too, but not ready to run for some reason.

You guys are amazing, thank you. I never cared too much about my dogs' racing careers, I never thought about it being a medical issue.

Certain diseases are only found in or are more prevalent in certain locations. Valley Fever, for example.

RMarie,

 

Different ticks live in different geographical areas. Other different local ailments (like Valley Fever, which is a Southwestern U.S. thing, Alabama Rot which is mostly--but not exclusively--Southeastern U.S.). For infections that could be tick borne, knowing which ticks are possible culprits is helpful.

 

I've got two dogs that have never been out of the Southest,* so lyme disease would be very far down the suspect list for both my dogs.

 

*ETA: As far as I know. I just remembered that Silver has a 30-month gap in her known history, and there's no telling where she was then.

RMarie, it can be helpful when trying to determine the possible cause of some symptoms. The prevalence of some tick diseases & possible exposure to things like Valley Fever, etc. When trying to come up with a likely treatment when the cause is still unknown it helps to at least have an idea of what the dog might be more likely to have & what is a big long shot.

I know what you mean but that is sadly not true any more. Lyme disease is all too common in our area now. Know of several dogs who contracted Lyme without leaving the TN/AL/GA/SC area. BF got Lyme while in Georgia. I was also very surprised to find out RMSF is on the rise as well. My critter sitter & a friend's Great Dane both nearly died from RMSF before finally being diagnosed. For my critter sitter that was almost 10 years ago & she'd not been out of Georgia for months before that. Friend's Great Dane hadn't left their yard for a month or so before he got RMSF.

For us new parents, how does the race history relate to medical issues? I'm confused. :dunno

After today, I would encourage you to look this information up now, before you need it, maybe ask your vet to put it into their files, so it will be there if anything weird does come up.

 

Of course with Murphy there will always be about a 4-5 year gap, since he was a double bounce, but since he stayed in SC for those homes, it's helpful to know what I can figure out about his pre-adoption life.
