Greyhounds in the news and Argos update

      No Comments on Greyhounds in the news and Argos update

Argos looking out the window © Janet Tobiassen Crosby DVMI am seeing many news stories about Greyhounds lately, with the closing of several US tracks. The tracks are closing due to loss of business (casinos and other forms of gambling being more lucrative) and due to changing laws, making Greyhound racing illegal in some states.

In this Veterinary Medicine at About.com blog post, I talk about the recent news, a very cool Greyhound medicine program at Ohio State veterinary school, and what we have learned about adopting a retired racer since Argos came into our lives.
