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 chemistry 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" during surgery and post operative. Fortunately, our pets have benefited greatly from these new ways of dealing with anesthesia, and their likelihood of safely recovering have increased tremendously. If you are a greyhound owner, we highly recommend downloading the document above 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.
