  • Greyhound blood is different than all other dog blood. So much so that many test results read differently for greyhounds. They also need to be administered anesthesia at another dosage than all other dogs.  Print out this card and keep it in your wallet or scan it with your phone so you always have it with you. Show it to your veterinarian or any emergency veterinarian who may need to work on your greyhound.
