Episode 77: Behold the Power of Diatomaceous Earth!

A non-toxic, natural multi-purpose solution.

Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is an all-natural, non-toxic substance that has many uses in greyhound homes. It can be used as a food supplement, to get rid of flees and ticks in your greyhound’s coat and in your yard, as a deodorizer, and even to help deworm.  Discover what DE is, where it comes from, and how to use it.

Episode 24: Hooked on Hookworms!

You can’t see them, but they can harm your greyhound.

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.
