Greyhounds and Anesthesia...Know the Protocol
For years, veterinarians struggled with the oftentimes difficult and sometimes lethal outcomes when dealing with greyhounds and surgeries. Greyhounds have unique body chemistries, and even the most routine dental can end in tragedy if your veterinarian is not aware of the specific protocol(s) developed to prevent greyhounds from "crashing" both during surgery and post operatively. Fortunately, our pets have benefitted greatly from these new ways of dealing with anesthesia, and their liklihood of safely recovering have increased tremendously. If you are a greyhound owner, we highly recommend downloading the following document on Anesthesia Protocol for Greyhounds, and keep one for yourself, give one to your vet, and keep one in your automobile in case of an emergency. It could save your greyhound's life.
