Whole of Life Health for Greyhounds

The Greyhound Health InitiativeThe Greyhound Health Initiative is an american organisation dedicated to Improving Greyhound Health through Education, Research and Accessibility.

This organisation originally focused on Retired Racing Greyhounds, and have expanded to meet demands of all canine veterinarians including blood bank donations.

Their website greyhoundhealthinitiative.org is a great reference tool.  The QGBOTA
