OK, so not the best episode title. Hookworms, while they can’t be seen with the naked eye, are gross. Over time, they can also cause serious health issues when left untreated. In this episode, we sit down with Patty Comerford to find out what they are, why newly retired racing greyhounds may be infected, and how to have them diagnosed, treated, and (hopefully) avoided in the future.
