Why this book.
A healthy and lifelike sighthound is beautiful to see. Sighthounds are generally healthy and strong dogs.
But also a greyhound may become ill and then you should visit a vet.
And then it comes up to how much knowledge a veterinarian has from sighthounds. Many veterinarians will say a dog is a dog, but that is not the case in many respects. Other vets say for unclear reasons to have sense of sighthounds while they do not.
DNA research has shown that sighthounds form a separate group compared to all other dogs, and that is in many different ways with other dogs.
90% of veterinarians do not have the amount of knowledge needed to make a correct diagnosis. They have heard that they have to be careful with anesthesia, but the thyroid gland has different values and that there are other blood values are often unknown and there are many differences compared to "normal" dogs.
The book presented here presents all the differences between "normal" dogs and sighthounds.
The booklet is also intended for Podenco's, Pharaohounds, Basenji's and all other semi-finals from FCI Race Group 5, as these dogs may also have a number of different values.
The booklet is interesting to read but it is also meant that if your greyhound is ill, take this book to the vet so that he can make a correct diagnosis based on the information given.
A booklet that every sighthoundowner and vet should must own.
