As owners and trainers we are aware that any anaesthetic drug for the Greyhound breed comes with its own set of risks.
It is common to either have a personal experience, or a second hand experience, of side effects to any surgery. Without explanation your Greyhound may be slower to recover, and is groggy for hours longer than usual, or, your bitch is perfectly healthy for a standard cesarean, however when it operation is over the bitch never regains signs of life.
A study in the US has now released a study to explain why the Greyhound breed is different from other canines.
