Vets & First Aid


Greyhounds are a unique breed of dog (just ask any greyhound owner and they'll tell you... for hours) and this includes their medical needs. This means you'll need a greyhound savvy veterinarian or you'll need to help your veterinarian become greyhound savvy. Below is a list of vets that various members of COGR have found in the Central Ohio area who are knowledgeable about greyhounds. If you're already established with a veterinarian be sure to check out our FAQ to learn about the greyhounds' unique physiology and medical needs.

In addition to veterinary care it never hurts to learn a little first aid in case your hound has an accident. Click here for a quick primer on Pet CPR. While this is a handy reference guide it doesn't make up for actual training. Check the American Red Cross for pet first aid classes near you. And remember when an animal is scared and/or in pain they will bite so always put a muzzle on your hound before attempting first aid.
