Description of this Book

The first edition of this book was responsible for inspiring tens of thousands of people to adopt ex-racers. Now, this fully updated edition features groundbreaking veterinary information not available anywhere else. Greyhound authority Cynthia Branigan - who has placed over 4,000 Greyhounds through her organization - offers updated statistics on the costs involved with adopting as well as new health information, such as warnings about tick-borne diseases and suggestions on buying veterinary insurance. Branigan carefully explains how to care for a Greyhound - everything from feeding and grooming to training - and how to extend the dog's life span. Readers will also find a wealth of updated information on medical conditions in Greyhounds and the latest in tests and treatment.
