4 Legs 4 Hounds Greyhound Program

What does Ohio State's Veterinary Medical Center do for Greyhounds?

  • Free carboplatin (chemotherapy) for retired racers with osteosarcoma who are under the care of a veterinarian.
  • 4 Legs 4 Hounds program – Works collaboratively with two racetracks in West Virginia to provide a second chance to Greyhounds incurring a career-ending racing injury. The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine's Greyhound student group, Buckeyes 4 Greyhounds, ensures these injured dogs are transported and receive the specialty care needed at the Veterinary Medical Center, in addition to providing much-needed foster care.
  • Keeps a web page with Greyhound health information.
