Greyhound Health and Wellness Program offers new service

Subscription-based website for owners and veterinarians

The Ohio State University Greyhound Health and Wellness Program (GHWP) has launched a new website: https://greyhound.osu.edu/.  
 
The members-only site offers news and information to veterinarians and Greyhound/sighthound owners, trainers, and others interested in the breed. As well as granting members access to the newsletter, an on-line consultation service, and the latest information and research on Greyhound Health and Medicine, membership fees enable the program to:

  • Support health studies in Greyhounds and other sighthounds
  • Continue to provide chemotherapy at no cost for retired racers
  • Provide financial support to owners who cannot afford healthcare for their hounds if their dogs are evaluated/treated at Ohio State
  • Organize the OSU Annual Greyhound/Sighthound Conference
  • Publish and disseminate current information on Greyhound health care 

Please visit the website and click on "membership" to join. The page can also be viewed in Spanish.

Questions can be directed to Liliana Marin at Liliana [dot] Marin [at] cvm [dot] osu [dot] edu
