Format: Hardcover
This book is the complete guide for all owners of greyhounds and other sighthounds, especially those lucky owners of ex-racers. The sometimes specialised care, feeding and veterinary attention necessary for healthy greys is explained here in great detail. This book is an excellent everyday guide, as well as a great emergency reference. Every greyhound owner should have one-share it with your adoption group, and definitely show it to your vet.

Format: Paperback
This book is the most valuable book I own. THE defininitive source for anyone in amature or professional dog racing. In the five years I have competed my Whippets in amature racing, this book has been very valuable. I just used this book to diagnose a severe toe injury that nobody at the track recognized. My local vet would not have known what to do, but my findings in this book led me to call a specialist who confirmed my findings and can perform the necessary surgury. This book saved my dogs ability to run again.
I have used the exams and treatments in this book countless times to diagnose and treat racing injuries in my dogs that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. Many times I have left the track saying "I don't know how he got hurt." or "I don't know why he is limping." I went home, and got out this book, and found the answer.
The training methods are very precise and specific. The schedule for conditioning a dog is layed out week by week.
If you run dogs, you must have this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for any sighthound, especially for owners of retired racers whose old track injuries may come back to haunt you. But do not pay the high prices of resellers on this site UNLESS you are a collector looking for the original printing of the now outdated version!!!

You can buy this book updated and new from NGA and several greyhound adoption groups, for $40 softcover and about $65 hardcover. Just search the title from your browser.

Format: Paperback
Good for professional and also good for non vetrin. in Europe it is not possible to take a book like this. Most Vetr. can learn from this book too. We are on the race tracks in europe since 25 years with afgaanhounds and since 20 vears in the top, and in this book i found many news.
