HEALTH INFORMATION

We have compiled information on some of the diseases and medical conditions that we've encountered during the course of our involvement with dogs.  The links below will take you to the results of our research on these conditions and illnesses.  Some of them are obscure, and some of them are all too common.  This page and its links will be a work in progress as we add more information.

While Italian Greyhounds are generally a healthy breed, there are health issues that are sometimes found in dogs from varied sources.

Some of these conditions are:

Eye conditions, autoimmune issues, patella (knee) luxation, Legg-Calves Perthes disease (hips), thyroiditis, leg breaks
