Foster Parent Update:

3/31/2012—Didi is doing really well and learning fast.  She is totally cat safe and does well with children.  She’s a great dog and I would love to adopt her myself,  but I feel that 3 may be too much for me.  She is available for adoption and I will have her at Petsmart this Sunday, 4/1, for the meet and greet.   

 

3/12/2012–Didi is doing really well. She slept straight through the night on the futon beside my bed. Never made a peep. She’s getting along great with the cats and with Molly and Mojo. She ate a little last night and more this morning.   She found one of Mojo’s toys and has claimed it for herself. I gave all three of them bathes this morning, Didi still had some track funk to her. She seems happy.

Last year the Wheeling Island Racetrack and The Ohio State University  formed a joint venture targeting the wellness of greyhounds.

With support of the West Virginia Racing Commission and Wheeling Island, the investigative study was conducted in July (2011) at Wheeling by Dr. Couto, Dr. Bohenko and a group of veterinarians and students from Ohio State University.

 

Dr. Bohenko said the study had three goals –
provide health screens for 120 greyhounds,
test for tick borne and heart worm diseases and
the effects of exercise (racing) on blood work.

“Through this joint effort, we are trying to learn more about these greyhounds and what makes them tick,” Dr. Bohenko said. “This is the first time a study of this magnitude using actively racing dogs has ever been conducted. Mostly retired greyhounds have been used in the past.”

The greyhounds in the study had blood drawn on three occasions – the day before they were scheduled to race, immediately after their race and one to two hours after the completion of their race.

In addition to tests for heart worm and tick borne diseases, Dr. Couto and his staff did complete blood counts (CBCs), serum chemistry profiles (liver, kidney function, etc.) and blood gas analysis (BGs). The heart worm and tick borne disease tests all were negative.

“It’s a good reflection on the care these greyhounds receive,” Dr. Bohenko said. “It also points out to people who want to adopt them that there are no problems.”

GALT, Inc.–3 Amigos

 

  4 Legs 4 Hounds Program is a partnership between Wheeling Island Racetrack & Kennels and the Ohio State Veterinary School Greyhound Wellness Program to rehabilitate greyhounds that suffer career ending leg fractures.

 

 

One of the most common racing injuries that will usually end the career of a racer is the broken hock. Usually the right back leg is the most vulnerable due to the stress on the first turn.

 

This partnership is two-fold:

 

First, to improve the health status of racing greyhounds through an investigative study.

Secondly, to significantly decrease or eliminate euthanasia due to catastrophic fractures. 

Wheeling Island Racetrack pays for all medical bills to repair the broken legs, then the greyhounds  become a ward of  Greyhound Pets of America (GPA).  From there the greyhounds go to adoption organizations which find adoptive homes for them to enjoy their retirement in.
